WWE Royal Rumble 2019 Will Be Corey-iest Royal Rumble Ever

With the WWE‘s Royal Rumble claw-holding its way to Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, the WWE Universe now knows the names of the voices in their heads when the first bell rings this Sunday, January 27th. Originating from Ontario, Canada, in 1988, the Royal Rumble is one of the professional wrestling company’s more popular PPVs and features Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble matches, with Superstars from Raw and SmackDown LIVE competing for a World Championship opportunity at WrestleMania.

During this weekend’s Royal Rumble and Royal Rumble Kickoff, a stable of announcers are lending their voices to the in-ring, ringside, and backstage action – and let’s not forget our trusted ring announcers, Greg Hamilton and Mike Rome!
