Royal Rumble 2023: Reigns vs Owens
On Saturday, January 28th, 2023, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will face challenger Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. This rivalry between Reigns and Owens is not new. Over the past few years, the two WWE superstars have faced each other many times in various matches including a steel cage match, a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match, and a Last Man Standing Match.
Now, KO has again found himself at odds with The Head of the Table and The Bloodline. He recently teamed with “The Greatest of All Time” John Cena to hand Reigns and Sami Zayn a tag team loss on the final SmackDown of 2022. Still seething over the defeat, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion accepted Owens’ challenge for a title matchup at Royal Rumble.
The 2023 Royal Rumble takes place live from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on Saturday, Jan. 28, at 8 ET/5 PT. The event streams live exclusively on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network internationally.
