WWE reported last week that the 2017 Royal Rumble event will be taking place at the Alamadome in San Antonio, Texas.
The Alamadome seats around 65,000 people so tickets need to be selling, the Rumble brings us at least 1-2 surprises each year, all in all it’s what the event specializes in & of course it’s a huge draw every year.
The Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels may have retired from in-ring competition back in 2010 but HBK certainly has ties with Texas, the word on the street as of now is that the WWE are considering asking Shawn to feature at the event but that would most likely not not involve any matches.
Another huge name being thrown into the hat is the hell raiser himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Steve & Shawn were last seen at WrestleMania 32 along with the Hardcore Legend, Mick Foley.
Stone Cold was nursing injuries at WrestleMania & played as little a physical role as possible, interrupting the League of Nations celebrations over The New Day. It’s very possible that he would again appear in his home state of Texas, but in a less physical role.
Stone Cold has spoken of his desire to never wrestle again & he stands by that every time somebody raises the question, so don’t expect too much on that front from Steve.
Are you looking forward to the Rumble as much as us? let us know on Twitter! @grplgme
