Tentative Location Plans for WWE’s Royal Rumble 2023

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that his sources stated that WWE officials recently held talks regarding the idea of potentially holding next year’s Royal Rumble event in San Antonio, Texas.

Johnson speculated that the Alamodome would likely be the choice for host venue due to its past history hosting the 1997 and 2017 Royal Rumble events.
