The Royal Rumble is finally here. Tonight the WWE sets the table for Wrestlemania in Philadelphia and word on the street is the Rock is in town to spice things up. Brock Lesnar will face John Cena and Seth Rollins and the winner will face the winner of the Rumble at Wrestlemania.
What do you do if you are broke? You could get out and go to a sports bar like B-Dubs or Hooters that will be showing the event and spend a your entire paycheck on chicken wings and beer or you could suck it up and shell out 50 or 60 bucks to see the show in your own living room where the beer is free. Luckily we have the internet and you can find anything online if you know just where to look.
The WWE and Vince McMahon have made it easy for you to find out where to watch it online and elsewhere and how to order it. You can go their website for all the different places it is offered. DirectTV, Dish, Comcast and just about every other provider will have it available. You can even order it on WWE.com for $54.95. It may not be on the bigscreen but it’ll have to do on your laptop. You can also subscribe to the WWE Network for 10 bucks too.
Adam Rose, Tyson Kidd & Cesaro vs. The New Day will kick off the show live on the WWE Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. It will be free as long as you are a subscriber to the WWE Network. But if you have no intention of paying for the rest of the event due to the high pay per view fees there are places on line that will offer it but it will be a stream and likely not very good quality. There are some sites that will have pirated streams up but they always get taken down right away and are extremely unreliable. Another option that I use for most UFC pay per views is to wait until the next day and go watch it at someone’s house who DVR’d it. Or if you want to wait just watch WWE RAW on Monday night they will quickly fill you in on what went down.
The complete pay per view card is listed below.

You could always hop on your private jet if your pilot is on call and head to Philly if you want to see the show in person but tickets are sold out. But if you have a private plane chances are you won’t mind paying high prices from a scalper for tickets to get in the show.
One more thing-stay off your phone. Social media sites will have the results so unless you want the show spoiled don’t get on Facebook.
