When Is WWE Royal Rumble 2017? Date, Location & Start Time

The 2017 Royal Rumble is looking to be the most exciting installment in recent memory.

The big 30-man main event already has two major names thrown into the mix – Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. Along with those two juggernauts, 28 other Superstars are looking to remain the last man standing in the match and go on to main event WrestleMania 33. Will we see returning Superstars, cruiserweights and even a few women given a chance to head into the Royal Rumble? We’ll just have to wait and see.
