WWE’s annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view show is famous for its 30-man over-the-top main event match. Traditionally taking place every January, the match is often one of the main highlights of the WWE calendar.
In addition to the Royal Rumble match, the event often produces several entertaining matches on the undercard.
