Royal Rumble 2024 Stadium
Royal Rumble 2024 will take place at Tropicana Field. It is a multi-purpose indoor stadium in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. Currently, the stadium has a capacity to accommodate 25000 spectators. It served as the WWE Thunderdome during the COVID-19 pandemic and also featured the 2021 edition of Royal Rumble.
Which Title can the Royal Rumble winner challenge for?
The highlight of the night is always the eponymous Royal Rumble match. The winner of the Royal Rumble match has traditionally been awarded a match against the world champion at WrestleMania, which is usually the main event of The Grandest Stage of Them All. For WrestleMania XL, the winner of Men's Royal Rumble Match can go for either the World Heavyweight Championship or the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. For the Women's Royal Rumble Winner, the choice remains betweeen WWE Women's Championship and Women's World Championship.
For the 2020 and 2021 Royal Rumble, the NXT Championship was also an option for the winner and the same was exercised by Charlotte Flair who challenged then-NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 36. However, the option seems to have scrapped now. In 2022, The Money in the Bank winner Austin Theory cashed in his briefcase on the United States Champion Seth 'Freakin' Rollins. Thus, it is also possible that the Royal Rumble winner can also use his oppurtunity on a title other than the world title. However, the probability of that happening is almost zero.
