The 2017 Royal Rumble Match

Thirty Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE will fight for sports-entertainment immortality when the annual Royal Rumble Match takes over WWE Network this Sunday, Jan. 29. The winner of the massive melee, now in its 30th year, will go on to challenge for a World Championship in the main event of WrestleMania this April.

A tradition dating back to 1988, the Royal Rumble Match starts with two participants, and new Superstars entering the ring every two minutes. This continues until all 30 Superstars have entered the bout. Elimination occurs when a Superstar is thrown over the top rope and both of his feet hit the floor. The last Superstar in the ring will be declared the victor.

So far, the following the Superstars have been announced for the gigantic match:

Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker go face-to-face with Goldberg: Raw, Jan. 23, 2017

For the first time since Goldberg defeated Brock Lesnar in their Mega Match at Survivor Series, the two titans meet in the center of the ring for an intense confrontation that is interrupted by The Undertaker.

What other Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE will join the fray and fight for the chance to headline The Grandest Stage of Them All? More important yet: Who will be the last man standing when the dust settles inside San Antonio’s historic Alamodome?

Find out when The Road to WrestleMania begins at WWE Royal Rumble 2017. The huge event takes place this Sunday, Jan. 29, at 7 ET/4 PT, live on the award-winning WWE Network.
