The 2021 Royal Rumble event is set to go down inside the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in Tampa, Florida, as one of the more prominent shows on the WWE calendar is set to get the year started and kick off the Road to WrestleMania 37. The card will be headlined by the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches, with the winners of those matches earning world title shots at the premier show of the year this coming spring.
This year’s Royal Rumble event takes place on Sunday, Jan. 31. The headline matches are almost guaranteed to deliver surprises, but there will be a full card of action filling out the rest of the event, including some potentially huge championship bouts. While the card is still being filled out, we have taken a crack at predicting what will take place as WrestleMania 37 season kicks off.
The show will stream live on the WWE Network beginning at 7 p.m. ET following a one-hour kickoff show beginning at 6 p.m.
