This year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view was WWE’s last houseful Big 4 event in the past six months. Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, WWE was forced to move WrestleMania, Money In The Bank, Backlash, and Extreme Rules to an empty Performance Center while NXT TakeOver: In Your House was held at an audience-less Full Sail University.

While WWE is yet to confirm their location for the upcoming SummerSlam PPV, at the same time, they reportedly had plans to announce the 2021 Royal Rumble date and location next month.

However, now that the coronavirus has put nails in Vince McMahon’s grand agenda, the billion-dollar promotion could possibly postpone their scheduled announcement.

According to Wrestle Votes, WWE’s plans regarding the 34th edition of Royal Rumble have changed and the announcement is now on hold. The company is expected to make major changes to the first pay-per-view of 2021.

This year’s Royal Rumble had some last-minute changes – Roman Reigns was originally supposed to win the 30-Man high-profile bout but it was Drew McIntyre who went on to headline WrestleMania, while on the other hand, Charlotte Flair was handed Shayna Baszler’s winning spot in the women’s matchup.

It remains to be seen whether WWE is able to hold the Royal Rumble at an outdoor location with fans in attendance.
