WWE Royal Rumble Makes Epic Return to Alamodome After 20 Years

Didn’t get a chance to see WWE’s Royal Rumble at the Alamodome back in 1997, where more than 60,000 fans gathered to see Stone Cold Steve Austin win the Royal Rumble match and Shawn Michaels win the WWE Championship? Well, you’re in luck because this January WWE will be returning to the San Antonio venue after a 20-year hiatus.

Always one of WWE’s biggest events of the year, Royal Rumble officially kicks off the road to WrestleMania, and is always jam-packed with action from the biggest names in the sport.
