WWE Royal Rumble 2016 is officially sold out


The WWE has confirmed that all tickets are gone for the 2016 Royal Rumble, set for Sunday, January 24th at the Amway Arena in Orlando, FL.

After an Internet pre-sale in August and another pre-sale this past week, most of the arena was sold out for a configuration of 13,000. The on-sale to the public, which started this morning, sold out in less than 30 minutes.

The Rumble is traditionally the company's second biggest event of the year. The winner of the Royal Rumble by stipulation is supposed to challenge for the WWE title at WrestleMania. 

Some other fun facts:

- This is the second Rumble event in Orlando, and the first there since January 21, 1990 -- the 3rd Rumble in company history. Hulk Hogan won the event that night, his first of back-to-back Rumble wins.

- This will be the fifth Rumble held in Florida, and the 29th overall.

- Roman Reigns will look to become the first back-to-back winner of the Rumble since "Stone Cold" Steve Austin did it in 1997-98. If he does it, he joins Hogan, Austin, and Shawn Michaels as the only men to do it.
