Everyone’s favorite annual wrestling tradition is finally here, with casual fans and the hardcore looking forward to it arguably more than even WrestleMania. We are of course talking about WWE’s Royal Rumble, a staple of the wrestling calendar each January in which 30 people enter a ring, and only one can leave the winner. This year’s event has a lot more riding on it than in previous years, with many people probably wondering where they can watch the 2023 Royal Rumble.
This year, expect two Royal Rumble matches, one for the men’s division, and one for the women. Bookies have their favorites for both, though it looks like the obvious winners are the easy money this year, but it doesn’t stop a couple of huge surprises from still going down. Elsewhere on the card, fans can look forward to two huge championship matches and the first televised match for Bray Wyatt since his return to WWE.
Are you ready? Here’s all you need to know to watch WWE Royal Rumble 2023 ahead of the event itself on Saturday, January 28th, 2023.
