WWE is already in Saudi Arabia, preparing for Crown Jewel on Halloween. The entire deal between WWE and the Saudi Arabian Government has created issues, but money speaks louder. Since WWE is moving forward with the event, here’s a look back at the best and worst matches as par of the deal.
Greatest Royal Rumble: Jeff Hardy defeated Jinder Mahal to remain WWE United States Champion (Worst)
While there are plenty of matches that stunk, Jinder Mahal and Jeff Hardy took it to another level with one spot. Hardy completely missed the whisper in the wind, but that did not stop Mahal from selling the move.
Greatest Royal Rumble: Braun Strowman won the 50 man Royal Rumble Match (Best)
The Greatest Royal Rumble Match was never designed to be something high-caliber. Mostly, we got surprise names for a few minutes before moving onto the next superstar over the course of 50 entrants.
Greatest Royal Rumble: AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura ended in a double count out for the WWE Championship (Worst)
There were high hopes for the AJ Styles – Shinsuke Nakamura feud and they rarely delivered. The problem this time around, the lame double count out in a WWE Championship match.
Greatest Royal Rumble: The Undertaker defeated Rusev Casket Match (Best)
The Casket Match is something synonymous with Undertaker and his 25 plus year run in WWE. Rusev was the right challenger as it allowed Undertaker to get a fresh and much needed win.
Greatest Royal Rumble: Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns by escaping the cage Steel Cage to remain WWE Universal Championship (Worst)
There was lots of shock when Brock Lesnar kept the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 33. We figured the title would trade hands at the Greatest Royal Rumble, only for a lame spot to keep the title in its place.
