    Wrestling Fans Rejoice: Royal Rumble to Return to Philly

    World Wrestling Entertainment's Royal Rumble pay-per-view is returning to Philadelphia next year.

    Philly.com reports it will be held Jan. 28, 2018 at the Wells Fargo Center. Wells Fargo last hosted the same pay-per-view in January 2015.

    But the WWE has changed its marketing strategy for its "big four" pay-per-views, which also include WrestleMania, SummerSlam and the Survivor Series.

    As a result, other live WWE television shows will be sandwiched around the Royal Rumble, filling the arena from Jan. 27-30, 2018.

    NXT Takeover will air a live show Jan. 27, with WWE's more established shows, Raw and Smackdown Live, telecasting from the arena on the 29th and 30th, respectively.

    This year's Royal Rumble is Sunday at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Top Sports: Brady Leads Patriots to Victory Through the FogTop Sports: Brady Leads Patriots to Victory Through the Fog
