• Royal Rumble 2023 To Set A New WWE Record
WWE’s Royal Rumble 2023 premium live event will take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on January 28.
During the Q3 earnings call, WWE’s co-CEO Nick Khan revealed that $4.6 million have already been made from Royal Rumble 2023 tickets.
According to the Wrestling Observer, this is the second biggest advance in the history of the Royal Rumble event, and the 2023 event is going to end up drawing the highest revenue from tickets in Royal Rumble history:
“The Rumble’s got a $4.6 million advance, which is the second biggest of all time for a Rumble, and they’ve still got another 3 months to sell tickets, November, December, and January. So it’ll be the biggest ever.”
