10 months ago By Sports Desk

In a momentous announcement, WWE, in collaboration with the Tampa Bay Rays, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, and the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, has announced plans to host the 37th Royal Rumble event in Tampa Bay in 2024. Wrestling fans from across the globe are eagerly anticipating this thrilling weekend of sports entertainment set to take place in the beautiful backdrop of Tampa, Florida.

A Spectacular Weekend Extravaganza

The Royal Rumble weekend, scheduled for January 27 and 29, 2024, promises to be an electrifying extravaganza spanning three vibrant cities: St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa. Wrestling enthusiasts can look forward to a weekend filled with action, drama, and larger-than-life characters.

Royal Rumble at Tropicana Field

The highlight of the weekend will be the Royal Rumble event itself, set to take place on Saturday, January 27, 2024, at the iconic Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. This colossal stadium will be the battleground for fierce clashes between WWE’s most prominent superstars. It’s a return to tradition as the Royal Rumble returns to Tampa Bay, in front of live fans, for the first time since 1995.

Monday Night Raw at Amalie Arena

The excitement doesn’t end with the Royal Rumble. Two days later, on January 29, 2024, the Amalie Arena in Tampa will be ablaze with the energy of WWE’s Monday Night Raw. This event promises to be a thrilling follow-up to the Royal Rumble, with unforgettable moments and intense showdowns.

Partnership and Enthusiasm

This grand spectacle is made possible through a collaborative effort between WWE, the Tampa Bay Rays, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, and the Tampa Bay Sports Commission. WWE Executive Vice President of Live Events, John Porco, expressed his excitement about the Tampa Bay market and the fantastic lineup of events slated for January.

Tampa Bay Rays President Matt Silverman extended a warm welcome to WWE, highlighting the event’s potential to showcase the region’s beauty and attractions to a global audience.

Caleb Peterson, Senior Business Development Manager at Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, emphasized the community’s enthusiasm for hosting WWE fans and expressed gratitude to key partners for creating this unique opportunity.

Rob Higgins, Executive Director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, shared his excitement for hosting WWE once again, following the success of WrestleMania 37. He noted that Royal Rumble Weekend in January 2024 would be a collaborative regional effort that spans Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties, promising unforgettable memories for fans.

What to Expect

The Royal Rumble event itself will be headlined by the thrilling 30-man and 30-woman Royal Rumble matches. The winners of these epic battles will earn the coveted Championship match opportunity at WrestleMania 40, setting the stage for future WWE glory.

Record-Breaking Success

This announcement comes on the heels of the record-setting Royal Rumble held in San Antonio, Texas. The 2024 Royal Rumble promises to build on this success, as it became WWE’s highest-grossing and most-viewed Royal Rumble in company history. It also set an all-time gate record, surpassing $7.7 million, an astonishing achievement that exceeded the previous high set in 2017 by more than 50 percent.

As Tampa Bay gears up to host the 37th Royal Rumble in 2024, the wrestling world is abuzz with anticipation. With a stunning lineup of events, the return of the Royal Rumble to Tampa Bay, and the promise of unforgettable moments, this weekend promises to be a milestone in WWE history. Wrestling fans, mark your calendars and prepare for an action-packed, larger-than-life experience like no other. Tampa Bay is set to become the epicenter of sports entertainment, and the 37th Royal Rumble is an event not to be missed.
