Are you ready to rumble? (The correct and only answer to this question is a whopping "Hell, yes!") Royal Rumble, World Wrestling Entertainment’s classic showdown, is coming to the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-622-5435 or www.scotttradecenter.com) this evening at 6:45 p.m. for the infamous brawl's first ever stop in St. Louis. Thirty WWE Superstars (not counting additional alter-egos) enter the ring, but only one will remain standing. The victor goes on to the main event, Wrestlemania XXVIII, on April 1 in Miami. There will be (artificial) blood, beatdowns and drama, plenty to satisfy WWE fans of all ages. John Cena, Randy Orton and the Divas are a small sample of the big names expected at this year’s Rumble. Come cheer for your heroes, admire the gorgeous ladies or heckle the villains you love to hate. Tickets are $20 to $300.
