WWE.com has confirmed that the WWE Royal Rumble will return to San Antonio’s Alamodome for the first time in 20 years in January.
The event will be held Jan. 29th, 2017. The last time the show came to that San Antonio venue, in 1997, a title bout between Shawn Michaels and Sycho Sid brought more than 60,000 fans into the Alamodome.
Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 14 at 11 a.m ET /10 a.m CT. through Ticketmaster. WWE superstars expected to compete include: John Cena, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, A.J. Styles, Randy Orton and Kevin Owens
It should be interesting to see what kind of card WWE plans out with the intent on selling out the Alamodome. It should be noted that while the 1997 event drew 60,525 fans it was 48,014 paid fans and it was built around the hometown hero in the main event.
