ROYAL RUMBLE 2020: Minute Maid Park in Houston to host the 2020 Royal Rumble

Posted on 2/16/119 by Colin Vassallo

Another baseball stadium will be hosting next years Royal
Rumble as the Houston Chronicle reported that the Minute
Maid Park in Houston will play host to the 2020 Royal

Minute Maid Park is the home of the MLBs Houston Astros and
has a retractable roof. It was built in 2000 and has a
seating of just over 40,000. In its 19-year history, the
Minute Maid Park only hosted one non-baseball sporting
event, which was a soccer match in 2006. Several concerts
have been held at the location as well.

We had a wonderful experience at Chase Field, and that
underscored our excitement with the decision to place the
2020 Royal Rumble at Minute Maid Park, WWE executive vice
president of special events John Saboor said. We want to
expose the WWE brand and its events to as many people as
possible, and the size of facilities in which we present our
major events is a key catalyst.

Houston has not hosted a Royal Rumble since 1989, the first
one to be held on pay-per-view at The Summit. That event was
won by Big John Studd.
