What time does the 2023 Royal Rumble start?

We go over when you should tune into the Royal Rumble on January 28.


WWE will hold one of its flagship pay-per-views on Saturday with the 2023 Royal Rumble coming live from the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX.

The main show for Saturday will begin at 8 p.m. ET. and will stream live on Peacock. New subscribers can pay $5 per month for its regular service, and $10 per month for its premium service with no ads. Six matches are currently on tap for the premium live event.

The Royal Rumble is one of the company’s marquee premium live events of the year as it officially kicks off the road to Wrestlemania in April. The show is highlighted by two 30-person over-the-top-rope battle royals, one for the men and one for the women. The winners of these “Royal Rumble” matches will officially receive a title shot against the champion of their choice at Wrestlemania. The most anticipated entrant into the men’s match is Cody Rhodes, who is returning from a seventh-month absence due to a torn pectoral muscle.

Along with the two battle royals, there will be a handful of marquee matches throughout the show. Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns defend his titles against Kevin Owens and Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair will defend against Alexa Bliss. We’ll also get the first ever Mountain Dew Pitch Black match as Bray Wyatt takes on L.A. Knight.
