This week, we take a deep dive into the 1997 Royal Rumble pay-per-view that emanated live from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Yes, it’s the same venue that this year’s Royal Rumble will take place from, so… theme!
We are joined by a very special guest, Fox Sports Radio The Gambler host, Jon Jansen (@jjansen34)! We go through the entire pay-per-view, the history of the Alamodome, the history of some of the Mexican wrestlers on the card from Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, Stone Cold Steve Austin stealing a Rumble win away from Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels becoming a man in his own backyard (phrasing!) and much, much more!
