WWE.com's breaking the news that the UK WILL be able to watch the Royal Rumble through Sky Channel 435, Setanta Sport. It'll be live on pay-per-view, but they haven't announced a price yet. Great news-I could care less about missing the monthlies, but the Rumble is easily the best event of the year, regardless of the line-up.

What exactly is the point of paying Sky for it (after I pay my basic plus the extra for sports to watch RAW) when we can get it for half the price on EBay a few days later.

Firstly I want to be sure of the quality, not everyone is a rip off merchant on Ebay but they are there.

And secondly if everyone did that would Sky pick it next time around. If it doesn't sell they won't renew the deal.

I'm very happy they managed to work out a deal. Rumble is one of my favourite PPV's as well

Is this actually a deal done with Sky?

Surely if it was it would be on Box Office.

Looks like this 'Setanta Sport' channel have decided to carry it.

This is great news, no doubt i'll be getting it no matter what the price. I'm just wondering what logo Setanta Sports have in the corner or how big and annoying it is?

AHHHH! Thats massive! I hope it won't be that. Does the US have logos in the corner? Anyway I have e-mailed them about prices and repeat times and will report back with any news.

Hows it now?

Nobody can read your posts because your background is a white graphic reading "Sorry, you are trying to access an image from outside of ImageStation.com" - FYI
