Wrestling fans can watch Royal Rumble 2017 live online, with free streaming video of the WWE’s pay-per-view event along with plenty of places to follow live results of all the matches.
Sunday’s event will take place at San Antonio’s Alamodome. It is the 30th annual Royal Rumble and one that promises to pack some surprises. The event starts at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on a number of cable providers, but the WWE is also giving fans a chance to watch Royal Rumble live online without having to pay at all (a link to the streaming video can be found below).
As always, there are plenty of rumors surrounding the Royal Rumble match and the potential surprises. The WWE finds a way to sneak a few surprise entrants into the 30-man battle, and Forbes speculates that recent Hall of Fame inductee Kurt Angle could be one this year.
“Angle is arguably the biggest available free agent who hasn’t recently wrestled for WWE, and of all the countless former WWE stars out there, there is no one who would make a more substantial impact than Angle would upon his return to the ring. He has revealed that he signed a contract that will take him through WrestleMania 33, opening up the possibility of an in-ring return during that span.”
There is plenty of other speculation about possible entrants, from some other recent WWE superstars who have moved on to new ventures all the way to an unlikely former WWE participant — now President Donald Trump.
And there are already some hints from the WWE that this year’s Royal Rumble could have a surprise winner.
“Although I could easily pick names like The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Braun Strowman, Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose, I’m going off the beaten path a little here,” Philly.com writer Vaughn Johnson noted. “Triple H said in a recent interview that the outcome of the match would be one that no one expects, which tells me none of the names I just mentioned will be the last man standing.”
Fans who watch Royal Rumble 2017 live online will see more than just the main event. There will also be a WWE championship match between AJ Styles and John Cena, and a WWE Universal title match between Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens.

And there will also be a WWE Raw Women’s championship between Charlotte and up-and-comer Bayley.

Johnson predicted that this match could be one of the most interesting ones of the night, with the WWE unlikely to strip the title away from Charlotte, but still giving some kind of storyline to Bayley, who appears on her way to stardom.
“The match should be good, but I don’t see Charlotte losing the title just yet. I also don’t see her flat-out beating Bayley, so I’m thinking that the champion will find some nefarious means to retain,” he wrote.
