'Royal Rumble' Headed For Philly, Tkts. 11/1
Thirty of the world’s most entertaining WWE Superstars will bring their high-flying, hard-hitting stunts to Philadelphia when Royal Rumble slams into Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets starting at $25 will go on sale on Saturday, November 1at 10 a.m. exclusively through ComcastTIX at ComcastTix.com, by phone at 1-800-298-4200, or at the Wells Fargo Center Box Office.
Royal Rumble’s main event is a battle royal, over-the-top-rope, 30-man elimination match where only one wrestler will be left standing. WWE Superstars John Cena, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Kane and many more fight it out in the City of Brotherly Love for a chance to compete in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at WrestleMania 31.
John Cena is the face of the WWE, and one of the most decorated wrestlers in history. He has 15 reigns as World Champion, and the two-time Rumble winner is looking to become just the second superstar in history to win the Rumble three times. The 12-year veteran has also won the United States Championship, the World Tag Team Championship, and the WWE Tag Team Championship.
Roman Reigns looks to improve on last year’s record-setting Royal Rumble performance when he eliminated 12 participants in the battle royal match before finishing second, losing to Batista. He already has been a WWE Tag Team Champion, and the former NFL defensive lineman looks to be a future WWE Champion in the making.
This battle royal will be the first WWE pay–per–view event of 2015, and will also be the first Royal Rumble event ever to be streamed live on the WWE Network.
