'Pitch Black match' advertised for WWE Royal Rumble


"When it's the Pitch Black match, anything can happen," the advertisement says.


WWE has confirmed that the Mtn Dew Pitch Black match is coming to the Royal Rumble PPV.


A new match type may be making its debut at the Royal Rumble.

A commercial airing during videos on WWE's YouTube channel has seemingly indicated that the first-ever "Pitch Black match" will take place at next month's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The advertisement is a tie-in for Mtn Dew's Pitch Black flavour, which is returning to stores in January.


WrestlingNews.co reported last month that a Pitch Black match taking place at the Royal Rumble was a possibility.

"We were told about a pitch that was made for a 'Pitch Black' match and it was being seriously considered for the show," the report said. "The source did not have any more details on the structure/rules of the match but one source in the company believes that the match is for Bray Wyatt."


Wyatt, who is currently feuding with LA Knight, hasn't wrestled since making his return to WWE at Extreme Rules.

Royal Rumble 2023 is being held at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, January 28.
