2018 WWE Royal Rumble live stream, watch online, start time, PPV streaming

One of the most anticipated WWE events of the year, the Royal Rumble takes place Sunday evening from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. As the unofficial beginning of the Road to WrestleMania, the Royal Rumble continues to grow in popularity each and every year, making it one of the premier shows the company puts out there at the end of every January. 

Of course, the excitement around the event surrounds the annual 30-man Royal Rumble event, where one WWE superstar will outlast the 29 others in the ring to earn a world title shot at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans. However, there's even more reason to be excited this year because there's now another Rumble match to look forward to with the women playing by the same rules as the men for the first time. With surprises always promised in the Rumble, could we see the long-awaited debut of a certain former female UFC megastar, for example, even though she's claiming she'll be out of the country despite rampant rumors of her WWE signing
