The WWE has announced the arrival of “The Greatest Royal Rumble,” a ground-breaking live event that will take place in Saudi Arabia. The April 27th event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia is shaping up to be one of the biggest cards in WWE history. Not only will there be a 50-man “Greatest Royal Rumble.” There are also a lot of huge title and specialty matches planned

It isn’t just a 50 man Greatest Rumble; every male main roster title will be defended at the show as well.

this historic event will feature seven championship matches, including the WWE Championship, Universal Championship, Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship, Raw Tag Team Championship, SmackDown Tag Team Championship and Cruiserweight Championship.

Two of the seven title matches have been announced in addition to one MAJOR special attraction match.

For the first time since 2010, John Cena will go head-to-head with Triple H at the Greatest Royal Rumble…Additionally, the Greatest Royal Rumble event will feature an Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match: Seth Rollins vs. Finn Bálor vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe, and a Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The Hardy Boyz vs. Sheamus & Cesaro.

HOLY CRUD. Seriously, This card is outrageous. Cena and Trips haven’t wrestled in almost eight years! And it is just twenty days after Wrestlemania, so who knows what changes will happen? This does seem to portend that Braun won’t win the tag titles at Wrestlemania. However, we do have confirmation that Samoa Joe and Jeff Hardy will make their returns from injury.

As reported on Monday, Universial Champion Brock Lesnar will face Roman Reigns in a steel cage with the title on the line.

And it will also feature the return of the UNDERTAKER as the dead man faces off against Rusev in a casket match. Seriously, is Vince just putting WWE2K18 on auto and letting it book this?

Who Will Participate in the Greatest Royal Rumble?

The WWE has yet to release the prize for the winner of the Greatest Royal Rumble. Still, it is common for the Rumble to have surprise entrants that are not necessarily on the roster.

Even though there is no official participant list yet, there are some WWE superstars mentioned as entrants on the WWE website; this includes John Cena, Triple H, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, the New Day, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and Shinsuke Nakamura.

WWE also confirmed there would be no women wrestling on the card. Despite Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks making history last year in the Middle East, the devoutly Islamic countries are still not quite accepting of female’s wrestling.

Reports also state that the show will be broadcast live on the WWE Network. EXCITING
