WWE Royal Rumble 2023 Expected To Set Another Record

WWE held their 2023 WWE Royal Rumble Event last Saturday from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas and it was previously noted that the show set a new record in the event’s 36-year history by surpassing a gate of $7 million, which is way more than the previous record WWE set in 2017, the last time the WWE held the Royal Rumble at the same venue.

Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the WWE is slated to break another record with this year’s Royal Rumble Event for being the most-watched show by Americans in the event’s 36-year history due to the increase in Peacock subscribers, which would hit a total of 20 million towards the end of 2022. Dave Meltzer also stated that the live gate of the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble Event is the biggest in the history of any event in the U.S. that wasn’t a WrestleMania and it will most likely surpass both Night 1 and Night 2 of last year’s WrestleMania, which hold two records for the most-watched WWE show in history by Americans.

It looks like the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble Premium Live Event will be the 11th or 12th largest live gate for a wrestling show in the history of the entire industry depending on whether or not it can surpass the number that WWE Clash at the Castle did last September, but WWE was reportedly hoping to reach $8 million because that would make Royal Rumble similar to or even more than Clash at the Castle.
