The road to WrestleMania begins Saturday night at the 2024 Royal Rumble. The Royal Rumble is the first WWE Premium Live Event (PLE) of 2024. It also happens to be one of WWE’s “Big Five” events, which includes the Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Money in the Bank.
The event is known for the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches. Here’s how the Royal Rumble differs from other matches: Two wrestlers start in the middle of the ring. Every 90 seconds, another competitor will enter the ring. Wrestlers are eliminated when thrown over the top rope, and both feet hit the floor. There are no pinfalls or submissions. The last Superstar standing in the ring wins the match and receives a world championship match of their choosing at WrestleMania.
The Royal Rumble is one of the most exciting PLEs of the year. Learn more about the event, including how to watch a live stream.
The Royal Rumble starts at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Saturday, January 27. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT with the Royal Rumble Kickoff, a pregame show that will analyze the night’s matches. The 2024 Royal Rumble will be held at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. This is the second Royal Rumble at Tropicana Field after the 2021 edition. However, there were no fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
