Triple H & Royal Rumble Updates

Triple H Acknowledges NXT TakeOver Change, Interesting Royal Rumble News

The current attendance for Sunday’s Royal Rumble looks to be about 25,000 – 30,000 paid which would be well short of the 43,000 capacity for Chase Field in Phoenix. Raw the next night at Talking Stick Arena is looking at around 7000 – 7500, which would be a big disappointment while Smackdown is currently at 6500 to 7000. NXT TakeOver on 1/26 is currently at 8500 to 9000.

Triple H recently acknowledged WWE moving NXT TakeOver before WrestleMania up a day is because of the ROH/NJPW show scheduled for 4/6. While he obviously didn’t reference the joint show by name, HHH commented that WWE didn’t want to make the fanbase “choose” between events.
