Get the WWE Royal Rumble 2017 for FREE when you sign up to the free month of WWE Network (then £9.99pm unless cancelled). Potentially the most unpredictable Royal Rumble event in a long time at the Alamodome, San Antonio Texas on midnight Sunday 29th January (10.00pm Sunday 29th January Preshow, 00.00am Monday 30th January main show), this year's entrants including Brock Lesnar, Goldberg and the Undertaker! The event also has the true main event before the Rumble, AJ Styles vs John Cena for the WWE World Championship (exclusively for the real flagship A Show SmackDown Live), and Kevin Owens vs Boreman Reigns for the Universal girly Championship (exclusively for the boring RAW championship belt) amongst other bouts.
