WWE Royal Rumble: How to watch, US & UK start time and full card

The WWE Royal Rumble returns this weekend

The Royal Rumble will return on Sunday. 

It's one of the most exciting WWE pay-per-views of the year and this weekend will officially kick off the Road to WrestleMania. 

The showpiece matches, of course, are the 30-man and 30-woman battle royals, with the winner of each going on to challenge for a title of their choice at 'The Showcase of the Immortals'. 

Not only will we be treated to two Royal Rumble matches, but there is also a stacked card that will make Sunday's PPV must-watch. 

Both Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre will be in action, with the legendary Goldberg returning to face the latter. 

One more title match has also been confirmed for the Royal Rumble, but a number of other matches are expected to feature. 

So let's get down to it. Here's everything you need to know about the 2021 Royal Rumble.
