WWE has announced that one of their longest running events, the Royal Rumble, will take place Houston, Texas in 2020.  The Royal Rumble always serves as the kickoff on the road to Wrestlemania.

Winners of each of the mens and women’s Royal Rumbles will receive a title match of their choice at Wrestlemania. Past mens winners include Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and this year’s winner: Seth Rollins. While the first two women’s Rumble winners have been Asuka, and “The Man” Becky Lynch.

WWE had this to say in their press release:

“WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced that Minute Maid Park in Houston will host the Royal Rumble on Sunday, January 26, 2020. The event will mark WWE’s debut at Minute Maid Park and the second time the Royal Rumble has been held at a baseball stadium following this year’s event at Chase Field in Phoenix which took place in front of a capacity crowd of 48,193.
