Royal Rumble 2017 Coming To San Antonio’s Alamodome

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.

  1. At this point I’m wondering if WWE really just wants to hear 60K people booing the finish to Royal Rumble again.

  2. To keep with tradition- wwe will have the shining stars win the rumble.
    nah, I officially pick Rollins or Cena to win.

  3. Wild prediction: Cena wins the Rumble. Taker comes back in January, takes the belt from AJ. Taker as champ v Cena in the main event of Mania 33 with Taker retiring and Cena tying the record.

  4. I say give the title to Orton for a bit, let him turn into that scary insane Orton from 08-09 (my favorite version of Orton) have him shave his head like he had it then. Have Styles win the Rumble and they tear the house down at wm. Makes SmackDown even more believable

  5. Maybe people from different states/countries will flood the stadium because San Antonio crowds suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

  6. I hate this idea. There is no reason for Taker or Cena to ever touch the title again at this point in their careers. They are two solidified legends, use the belt to help build new stars…I know it’s wwe and that would just be crazy.
