The Royal Rumble is one of the most important pay-per-views on WWE’s schedule, as it kicks off the road to WrestleMania.
WrestleVotes reports that WWE originally planned to announce the date and location for the 2021 Royal Rumble in early August, but the announcement has been put on hold, as details for the event are likely to change.
The exact reason for the change is not known, but over the last few months WWE has had to move their pay-per-views to the Performance Center due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was also recently reported that WWE may have to change plans for WrestleMania 37, which is currently set to take place from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.
Stay tuned for updates.
