Royal Rumble 2023 Host City Announced

Royal Rumble 2023 Host City Announced WWE

Aside from maybe WrestleMania itself, the next most anticipated event on the WWE calendar is the Royal Rumble in January, where 30 men and women battle it out for a chance to headline the biggest show of the year.

This year’s event took place in St Louis, with Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar scoring the victories in the match.

WWE today announced that the 2023 edition of the event will be held in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on January 28, 2023.

The event last took place in the Alamodome twice before, the first time in 1997, when Stone Cold Steve Austin claimed his first Royal Rumble match victory, and most recently in 2017, which saw Randy Orton pick up his second Royal Rumble victory.

WWE issued the following statement on their website:

STAMFORD, Conn., September 7, 2022 – San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg, the Alamodome and WWE are proud to announce that the Alamodome in San Antonio will host Royal Rumble on Saturday, January 28, 2023.  This marks the fourth time that Royal Rumble has been held in San Antonio and the third time the event has been hosted at the Alamodome.
