 Royal Rumble 2020

The road to WrestleMania starts at the Royal Rumble. Who'll be the last one standing and go on to headline the biggest event on the WWE calendar?

The Royal Rumble is one of WWE's major events. The pay-per-view (PPV) event is also a favourite with fans as the main event sees 30 superstars tussle it out and try to throw each other over the top rope.

Over the years the Royal Rumble has given us some spectacular moments. Who can forget all of Kofi Kingston's tricks or Rey Mysterio entering at number one and going the distance? Who knows what chaos the 2020 Royal Rumble will dish up.

When is the Royal Rumble?

This year's Royal Rumble begins at 11:00am AEDT on Monday 27 January. The event is being held at Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas.

Watch Royal Rumble on Main Event

The Royal Rumble is being shown on Main Event for a fee of $29.95. To get access to Main Event you'll have to be either a Foxtel or Optus TV customer. Foxtel customers can order Royal Rumble on the Main Event website, using the My Foxtel app, your Foxtel remote or over the phone.
