WWE Royal Rumble 2024 match card is slowly taking shape. There will be two 30-person matches on the show, one each for men and women. The Royal Rumble match is quite popular among the fans because 30 competitors participate in the match, with only one winner and he or she gets a chance to headline WrestleMania.
Royal Rumble will happen on January 27, 2024, with the Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg set to host the premium live event. It will be the first premium live event of 2024.
The upcoming WrestleMania will be the 40th edition of the Showcase of Immortals. Hence, WWE will go all out for WrestleMania XL, and for that, the first step is to hit a home run on the road to WrestleMania.
If AJ Lee were to return at the 2024 Royal Rumble, there would be absolutely 0 hope for any wrestling company to come close to WWE’s women’s division.
