The WWE Royal Rumble is the first stop on the road to Wrestlemania, and it appears that there is a lot of excitement, as seen by the ticket sales. The Alamodome has officially sold more than 40,000 tickets, claims WrestleTix on Twitter. The most recent update they made available to the public on January 17 lists the number of Royal Rumble tickets still available.
However, as WrestleTix has noted on their Patreon, WWE has surpassed the 40,000 ticket mark. They note that there are currently 2,728 tickets available for resale, with the total number of tickets distributed standing at 40,699 at this time. The Royal Rumble Premium Live Event typically does not feature a large number of matches due to having two different Royal Rumble matches (one for the men and one for the women).
The Pitch Black fight between Bray Wyatt and LA Knight is one of the three matchups that have been formally announced for the show as of this writing, in addition to the two Royal Rumbles. As Bianca Belair defends her RAW Women’s Championship against Alexa Bliss, there will be two championship matches. Roman Reigns, the Tribal Chief, will face Kevin Owens, and the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship will also be on the line.
RAW Women’s Champion
The Royal Rumble contests themselves will, of course, be the main attractions for this night. Fans don’t want to miss this exciting night of wrestling because both Royal Rumble contests always have a number of surprises for the audience. The unexpected participants who take part in the contests each year at the Royal Rumble premium live event are one of its biggest features. The names of some prospective competitors have started to surface this week.
Nia Jax, a former WWE Superstar, may compete in this weekend’s Women’s Royal Rumble event, according to reports. While Johnson wouldn’t promise she would be there, he made it apparent that he had heard something that gave him hope that she might show up this Saturday night. Since being let go by the organization in November 2021, the former RAW Women’s Champion hasn’t competed. She once had a slot on AOP’s Wrestling Entertainment Series in England but later cancelled the appearance.
