WWE Royal Rumble 2019: Start Time and How to Watch Online

The WWE's Royal Rumble, the first of the "big four" pay-per-views,, is this Sunday and fans should tune in if they want to see how the "Road to WrestleMania" begins.

The Royal Rumble card will have nine matches, two on the kickoff show, with every title but the Intercontinental and RAW Tag Team Championships being defended. The women's division is the talk of the show as the story between Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair continues to build toward WrestleMania 35.

On the men's side, the story is mostly focused on the Royal Rumble match itself as the WWE and Universal titles matches feel more predictable. Whether WWE goes with a safe choice, or an inspired choice that no one saw coming, will determine the course of the next few months of programming

If you're looking to watch the Royal Rumble, here's the start time and how to stream it online.
