Since the venue for the 2019 Royal Rumble was announced, fans have been anticipating the stage/ring/entrance set-up. Phoenix’s Chase Field is a baseball park, after all, and not configured like your usual arena or stadium show WWE usually puts on.
The one picture from inside the ballpark making the rounds doesn’t depict anything close to the complete set. It wasn’t even taken close enough to make out much detail. But there is a description from the person(s) who tweeted it out, who presumably either snapped the pic or is only a few degrees of separation away from that person:
First look at the Royal Rumble stage. Wrestlers entering from the dugout, which is covered by video screens, with a curved walkway to the ring and a tron above the ring.#WWE #RoyalRumble pic.twitter.com/ZaXaCT7PwR— Kenton (@Kenton_la) January 25, 2019

As cool as the sight of wrestlers coming up from that video screen covered dugout will be, it’s all about this “curved walkway” for me. Unfortunately, blowing the image doesn’t help me get a better idea of what the finished product will look like.
Oh well, the anticipation is part of the fun. Speculate away... it’s (almost) Rumble time!
