— WWE exec John Saboor had this to say:
“We had a wonderful experience at Chase Field, and that underscored our excitement with the decision to place the 2020 Royal Rumble at Minute Maid Park,” said Saboor, the company’s executive vice president of special events.
“We want to expose the WWE brand and its events to as many people as possible, and the size of facilities in which we present our major events is a key catalyst. This is an opportunity to build upon what has been a very special relationship built over several decades between WWE and Houston.”
