WWE Royal Rumble 2017 Taking Place In Los Angeles

Posted by BAD MAN

WWE announced this weekend during a Live Event last Saturday that the Royal Rumble 2017 will be held in Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on January 22nd, 2017.

A tickets pre-sale will kick-off on August 28th and last until September 3rd with the code LA2017.

All remaining tickets thereafter will go on sale to the general public on November 19th.

This is going to be the first Royal Rumble after the announced Brand Split which will happen after SmackDown goes live on July 19th. It will be interesting to see if WWE will bring back the old stipulation for the winner of the Royal Rumble match. Previously the winner of Royal Rumble was allowed to face any champion of his choice at the biggest annual PPV of WWE- WrestleMania. This stipulation was removed when WWE combined the World Heavyweight Championship to the WWE Championship.

WWE Royal Rumble 2017 will be the first time the annual 30 man extravaganza has ever taken place in Los Angeles, though certainly not the first to have taken place in the state of California. Back in the 90s, it was a regular haunt for the Rumble event with the 1993 show (Sacramento), 1996 (Fresno), 1998 (San Jose) and 1999 (Anaheim) all taking place there but since the 2005 edition from Fresno, the Rumble has been California free.
