Royal Rumble 2020 Match Card & Betting Odds

A look at all the action you can expect from the Royal Rumble in Houston as WrestleMania season kicks off.

We are officially on the Road to WrestleMania!

The WWE Royal Rumble will emanate from Houston, Texas this year in what is sure to be a fantastic show. The obvious focal point of this event will be the two Royal Rumble matches for the men and women in the WWE, so the question is who will be the last man or woman standing. This year’s show will be the first time in history that a WWE Champion has entered the Royal Rumble, and not had to defend his Championship whilst doing so – does this mean whoever eliminates him will be the number one contender? We will have to wait until Sunday to find out. Below you will find the start times for the Royal Rumble event.

Royal Rumble Start Time

4PM PT
6PM CT
8PM ET
12AM GMT

Please note that there will be a kick-off show to this event which will usually start two hours before these main show times will kick off. Nothing has been announced for the pre-show as of writing, but you can expect that there will be at least 1/2 matches to fill the time.

We have had it confirmed from Triple H that a few NXT superstars are going to enter this year’s Rumble match, so don’t expect too many returning legends. Only six spots remain open and assuming that at least the likes of Keith Lee and Matt Riddle are joining the fray, that won’t leave much room for CM Punk or Edge.
