Since the above post, however, WWE has crossed over the 40,000 ticket mark, as WrestleTix has discussed on their Patreon. They mention that the total distributed ticket number is currently at 40,699 while there are 2,728 tickets up for resale.
There is a chance that the number of tickets distributed will continue to rise as WWE and the Alamodome open up a few more areas throughout the arena. With less than a week to go until the Royal Rumble takes place, this is a great sign of things for the company as a whole.
What has been announced for the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble so far?
The Royal Rumble Premium Live Event typically does not feature a large number of matches due to having two different Royal Rumble matches (one for the men and one for the women).
However, as of this writing, other than the two Rumbles, three matches have been officially announced for the show, including the Pitch Black match between Bray Wyatt and LA Knight.
Two championship matches that have been announced, as Bianca Belair defends her RAW Women’s Championship against Alexa Bliss. The WWE Undisputed Universal Championship will also be on the line as The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns takes on Kevin Owens.
