As the first PPV of 2023 – and the first big WWE event of the Triple H era – it's little wonder that hopes are high for Royal Rumble 2023. Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens headlined the last time Royal Rumble was staged at the Alamodome in San Antonio, but The Head of the Table will be desperate to leave with better memories this time. Read on as we explain how to watch a WWE Royal Rumble 2023 live stream wherever you are in the world - with Peacock TV the exclusive broadcaster for US viewers (opens in new tab)!

The spectral figure of Uncle Howdy looms large over this event, with his name written all over both the Mountain Dew Pitch Black match between Bray Wyatt and LA Knight, and the WWE Raw Women's Championship singles match between Bianca Belair and Alexa Bliss.
There's rife speculation that Uncle Howdy's identity will be revealed at Royal Rumble, but as of yet we don't even know where his loyalties lie. Wyatt's first televised match since returning to WWE is unlikely to be a quiet affair.
And then there are the rumbles. 30 men and 30 women fighting for a shot at a championship at WrestleMania 39 in April, and you just know there's going to be a surprise appearance or several.
Bobby Lashley and Liv Morgan are amongst the handful of contenders who have already declared for the battle royal, and there are rumors that Brock Lesnar is preparing to throw his considerable weight into the squared circle too. Read on for the full WWE Royal Rumble 2023 card and all you need to know to watch a high-quality WWE live stream online from anywhere.
