WWE has confirmed that next year’s Royal Rumble will be taking place at Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas. Minute Maid Park normally plays host to the Houston Astros baseball team. In comments made by WWE’s executive vice president of special event, John Saboor, he cited the experience they just had, putting on a show on at another baseball field.
“We had a wonderful experience at Chase Field, and that underscored our excitement with the decision to place the 2020 Royal Rumble at Minute Maid Park.
We want to expose the WWE brand and its events to as many people as possible, and the size of facilities in which we present our major events is a key catalyst.
This is an opportunity to build upon what has been a very special relationship built over several decades between WWE and Houston.”
On their website, WWE said:
“We are thrilled to bring one of WWE’s biggest events of 2020 to Minute Maid Park,” said Janis Burke, CEO of the Harris County – Houston Sports Authority. “We look forward to WWE fans from around the world descending on Houston for the Royal Rumble.”
