Royal Rumble 2019 Weekend in Phoenix, AZ – Events, Food Recommendations, and More!

I’m a Phoenix resident who is VERY excited for our city to be hosting the Royal Rumble a couple of weeks from now. So much so, that I put together a Twitter thread on all of the wrestling related events going on, as well as local rec’s for food, drink, and nightlife. Original link: https://twitter.com/thesteelcage/status/1082722886756921344
