The 30th annual Royal Rumble took place on Sunday, January 29th from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The big 30-man match for the WWE Royal Rumble 2017 pay-per-view. The rules had two superstars starting the match and then a superstar coming to the ring every two minutes until all 30 competitors had come out. Eliminations occur every time a competitor is tossed over the top rope and both feet hit the outside floor. That continues until there is one superstar left in the ring as the winner who gets to have a headline match at WrestleMania 33.
The 2017 Royal Rumble match was the main event on the pay-per-view card, following the John Cena vs. AJ Styles WWE World Heavyweight Championship match. As of the Rumble results, Cena was the WWE Heavyweight Champion and Kevin Owens was WWE Universal Champion.
However, those championships could still change hands in the weeks ahead as there are episodes of Raw, SmackDown, as well as the Fastlane and Elimination Chamber PPVs.
