Royal Rumble 2017 is an upcoming professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event and WWE Network event produced by WWE for the Raw and SmackDown brands. It will take place on January 29, 2017, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This will be the 30th event under the Royal Rumble chronology.
The card will include matches resulting from scripted storylines and have results predetermined by WWE on the Raw and SmackDown brands. Storylines are produced on WWE's weekly television shows, Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, and 205 Live.
As is tradition, the card will be highlighted by the 30-man Royal Rumble match where the winner will receive a world championship match at WrestleMania 33 for either SmackDown's WWE World Championship or Raw's WWE Universal Championship. After defeating Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series in his first match in 12 years, Goldberg declared himself the first entrant in the Royal Rumble match on the November 21 episode of Raw. The following week, Paul Heyman addressed the Survivor Series match, stating that they underestimated Goldberg, and that the match was a humiliation and embarrassment for him and Lesnar. He then stated that Lesnar would also be in the Royal Rumble as Lesnar has something to prove.
- Numbers in parentheses indicate the length of the match.
- (c) refers to the champion(s) heading into the match.
