WWE has started finalising the 2020 Pay Per View events date as we are already into the second half of 2019. After announcing the WWE Wrestlemania 36 date, WWE Royal Rumble date and venue are now finalised.
The WWE officials finalised the Royal Rumble 2020 date to January 26 and venue finalised as Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. Just before Wrestlemania, there will be Elimination Chamber and Fastlane as two intermediate WWE PPV events and a NXT TakeOver.
WWE Royal Rumble has its own importance as the winner of Man’s Royal Rumble and Women’s Royal Rumble match gets the opportunity to face the WWE Champion and Women’s Champion of their choice at Wrestlemania, the following WWE PPV event.
From January 26, the winner will get enough time to prepare for their life-time opportunity match. They will have more than 60 days to mentally prepare for big time. In 2019, Kofi Kingston made most of it as he claimed the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania. Who will do it next year? We have to wait and watch.
The match card for the Royal Rumble 2020 will be finalised after the TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs Pay Per view event. The 2019 year will mark as the highest number of PPV events hosted by WWE in a calendar year. In 2018, WWE hosted 23 pay per view and this year it will be 24 in total.
