Vince McMahon’s legion of jacked-up, muscle-bound warriors rassle for the distinct honor of headlining WrestleMania in April when the WWE returns to San Antonio for the Royal Rumble. Unofficially dubbed “the kickoff to the road to WrestleMania” — WWE always had its way with monikers — the Royal Rumble has surprisingly taken place in San Antonio more than any other city (three times in the last 20 years). Iconic wrestling superstars such as John Cena, Goldberg, The Undertaker, and Brock Lesnar are scheduled to perform along with relative WWE newcomers AJ Styles, Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens. The main event of the evening is the fabled Royal Rumble match in which 30 wrestlers enter one ring and it’s “every man for himself.” The objective is to toss your opponent over the top rope until there is only one oiled-up rassler left standing. The victor then goes on to Orlando, not for Disney World but rather to headline the “grandaddy of them all,” WrestleMania. The Rumble is one of WWE’s most famous traditions (this is the 30th edition) and it’s a hoot for die-hard wrestling fanatics and casual fans alike. $45-$407, 5:30pm, Alamodome, 100 Montana St., (210) 207-3663, — Chris McDonald
