WWE Officially Announced The Location Of The 2019 Royal Rumble
The 2018 Royal Rumble is this Sunday from crazy town Philadelphia. To get everyone in the spirit WWE announced the date and location of next year’s show. It’s a doozy.
2019 WWE Royal Rumble Announcement
WWE today announced that Chase Field in Phoenix will host Royal Rumble on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019. This marks WWE’s debut at Chase Field and the first time that the Royal Rumble has ever been held at a baseball stadium.
In addition, as part of Royal Rumble Weekend, Phoenix will host the following events at Talking Stick Resort Arena:
While holding big events in smaller venues has it’s charm, I’m a fan of the big arenas. Or is this case, outdoor baseball parks. Chase Field is home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and it’s gorgeous.
Pro wrestling at baseball stadiums isn’t a new idea, and there have been some iconic moments in the past. It is new for modern day WWE however, and it’ll be interesting to see how they figure out the logistics. Another cool part of WWE’s marketing strategy is how the Rumble is more than a one day affair. NXT TakeOver will be the night before, while Raw and Smackdown will be the Monday & Tuesday after. Those three shows will take place at the Talking Stick Resort Arena, which housed last year’s Elimination Chamber.
Make sure to stayed tuned to our site as I’ll have previews and predictions for TakeOver and the Rumble on Friday.
