WWE Royal Rumble 2023 – Match card, rumours and start time

With Vince McMahon out of the picture, we’ve seen his son-in-law Triple H take the reins and have fans and critics alike chugging the Kool-Aid with his impressive changes.

That was just as true of Survivor Series WarGames, which was not only a tremendous amount of fun, but set things up very nicely for a year of wrestling ahead.

The Bloodline is not only ascendant, but unified. Ronda Rousey and Bianca Belair are shrugging off challengers but Damage CTRL have the tag gold.

Meanwhile Austin Theory and Gunter are holding the secondary titles in very different styles.

So everything is nicely poised for Royal Rumble 2023, which takes place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, January 28, 2023, with a predicted start time of 8pm ET/5pm PT (1am on Sunday, January 29 27 in the UK).

A likely one-hour kick-off show would start at 7pm ET/4pm PT (Midnight in the UK).
