2013 Royal Rumble Live Viewing Info

The 2013 Royal Rumble gets going Sunday night from Phoenix, AZ with a 30-Man Royal Rumble match headlining the card.  Also on the card, is the epic first-time ever battle featuring The Rock vs. CM Punk for the WWE Championship.  With Punk having held the title for over a year's reign, will The Rock finally end his time s champion?  Fans will be able to watch it live streaming online and on Pay-Per-View via cable or satellite TV.

It all starts at 7:30PM EST with the special live stream online pre-show.  Featured on this special half hour pre-Rumble show will be a United States Championship match.  Current champ, Antonio Cesaro takes on The Miz.  These two have been at it for weeks, but will Miz finally be able to take back the title for his third reign, or will Cesaro continue his obnoxious bragging rights?  The live streaming pre-show will be shown online via WWE's YouTube, Facebook and official website.

At 8PM EST the Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View goes live with four matches listed on the event card, so far.  In one match, tag team champions Hell No defend their titles against Rhodes Scholars (Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow).  Now that Hell No appears to be on the same page, will they prove stronger than their competition, or are the Rhodes Scholars going to be smart enough to grab the championship belts?

Another title match will have Alberto Del Rio defending his WWE World Heavyweight title against Big Show.  This one's a Last Man Standing Match where the first one who is unable to make it to their feet to answer the ref's ten count, loses!  Del Rio won the title from Big Show in this manner by pushing the announcers table onto his opponent.  However, Show did a similar feat on Friday's episode of Smackdown, leaving many wondering if Del Rio will be 100% on Sunday to defend the title.

The Rock hasn't held the WWE Championship in ten years, and he's looking to reclaim the gold so he can headline WrestleMania 29.  However, CM Punk has been one of the longest reigning champions in recent times.  Will Punk manage to overcome yet another top notch Superstar, aka "The Great One" to hold onto the title?  Or will The Rock reclaim the championship belt?  Remember, if The Shield gets involved, CM Punk is stripped of the title, according to Mr. McMahon.

And then there's the Royal Rumble, the main event, the top attraction of the night.  In this 30-man match, wrestlers come to the ring in timed intervals.  Wrestlers are eliminated when they're tossed out of the ring and their feet hit the floor.  The last man remaining in the match is the 2013 Rumble winner.  Many have promised they'll take the prize and headline WrestleMania, but only one can.  Will it be John Cena, Ryback, Sheamus, Orton, Ziggler, or someone else?

The Royal Rumble 2013 Pay-Per-View goes live streaming online and on PPV via cable or satellite beginning at 8PM EST Sunday night.  Remember to check the WWE website for how to order the event, or call your local cable or satellite provider for more details!
