Those who know the WWE will know the Royal Rumble. This huge event starts the season culminating in spring’s WrestleMania. This year, the WWE Royal Rumble will return to San Antonio’s Alamodome for the first time after 20 years.

On Sunday, January 29, 2017, around 60,000 fans will pack into the stadium to see which wrestler will win a spot in the coveted WrestleMania 33 to take place in early April in Orlando. When the Alamodome hosted the event in 1997, fans saw Stone Cold Steve Austin win the rowdy match. According to KSAT, this year, WWE devotees can look forward to “a 30-man over-the-top-rope Royal Rumble match, which will feature WWE Superstars from Raw and SmackDown.”

Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster on October 14, 2016, though their website doesn’t list the event yet. On the upcoming events page for Royal Rumble, those who attended the show in the past have written glowing reviews. Last year, username AmericanDrag0n wrote, “Just being in the atmosphere was amazing and electric…History was made and I got to see it!”

For WWE enthusiasts, the Royal Rumble’s return to San Antonio will be a welcome celebration of an over-the-top American spectacle.
