The Royal Rumble is arguably the WWE's second biggest event following WrestleMania. 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, Maven eliminating The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio entering at number one and going the distance or Edge returning just last year? Who knows what chaos the 2021 Royal Rumble will dish up.
This year's Royal Rumble PPV event begins at 11am AEDT on Monday 1 February. However, don't expect the Royal Rumble match itself to begin until at least 2pm. The event is being held at Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida.
If you're a wrestling fan then the WWE Network is your best bet. For US$9.99 a month you'll have access to every single new PPV as well as the biggest archive of WWE programming possible. No seriously, the WWE network has every PPV ever and loads of content from WCW.
WWE Network also has 24/7 programming with exclusive shows and documentaries. Unfortunately there's no longer a free trial available so you'll need to sign up to watch the Royal Rumble too.
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.
But if you want to order over the phone you'll incur a $2 fee on top of the $29.95 PPV. If you have Optus TV featuring Foxtel, your only option is to order Royal Rumble over the phone and incur the fee.
At the time of writing bookmakers have Daniel Bryan, Edge, Keith Lee, Big E and Brock Lesnar as the top five favourites to win the Royal Rumble. The most interesting name of those five is former champion Lesnar as he currently isn't under contract with WWE and isn't expected to return for the event.
If we've learnt anything about WWE's booking over the years it loves to put an old legend (think Lesnar, Goldberg, Sting, Batista) in the title picture. Edge's return does suggest it may be considering this path again, but there are more suitable winners and we'll lean towards Edge having a strong showing, but not winning.
Keith Lee and Big E both deserve to be right in the mix for a major championship, but historically WWE looks past them. Continually teasing fans that their crowd favourites are a chance to win it all, only to go down in a "brave" effort.
Of the remaining superstars Daniel Bryan is the odds-on favourite and it's too hard to look past him winning the event. Bryan could very easily be the babyface challenger against Roman Reigns that WWE is after at WrestleMania 37, the fact the pair have history makes it even more logical.
