    The Greatest Royal Rumble will stream live on WWE Network Friday, April 27, with a tune-in time of 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT, with a special, one-hour Greatest Royal Rumble Kickoff starting at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT.

Additionally, the historic event includes John Cena vs. Triple H, Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Universal Championship Match and six other championship matches.

    General Sports Authority of Saudi Arabia Chairman, His Excellency Turki Al Sheikh, WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia invite the world to celebrate this signature event. It is the first event as part of a long-term partnership between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.




    Triple H vs. John Cena

Tickets for this historic event will be available Friday, April 13, with details on when and where fans can buy tickets forthcoming.

    Additionally, the Greatest Royal Rumble event will feature an Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match: Seth Rollins vs. Finn Bálor vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe. A Ladder Match is when a championship title is suspended above the ring, and the first Superstar to climb to the top of a ladder and retrieve the title is the winner and champion.

    General Sports Authority of Saudi Arabia Chairman, His Excellency Turki Al Sheikh, WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia invite the world to celebrate this signature event, which includes the first-ever 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match and seven championship matches.

    Fans will also get to see WWE Superstars Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Shinsuke Nakamura, among others.

    The inaugural Greatest Royal Rumble will deliver live family-friendly entertainment to passionate fans across the Middle East. It is the first event as part of a long-term partnership between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Additional event details, including broadcast information, will be available in the coming weeks.




    Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins vs. The Miz vs. Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe - Ladder Match

    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    Four Superstars will take competition to new heights at WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble event, where the Intercontinental Championship will be contested in a high-risk Ladder Match.

    The Intercontinental Championship is one of the most prestigious prizes in sports-entertainment, having been held by such WWE Hall of Famers as Shawn Michaels, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Ricky “The Dragon Steamboat.” Given the title’s rich heritage, Finn Bálor, Seth Rollins, The Miz and Samoa Joe will stop at nothing to claim the workhorse championship on Friday, April 27, when it will dangle from the ceiling of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Sports City Stadium.

    The only way to win this bout is to ascend a ladder and snatch the Intercontinental Championship out of the sky. However, with three other Superstars to contend with, that’s easier said than done. Expect plenty of crash-and-burn moments and heartbreaking near-victories in this steel-bending, and perhaps career-changing, encounter.

    The Greatest Royal Rumble event will also play host to six other championship matches, John Cena vs. Triple H and the first-ever 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match. The action kicks off on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m. AST.




    The Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho - Casket Match

    In a stunning turn of events, The Undertaker will battle Chris Jericho in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27.

    Originally, the Casket Match was to be between The Deadman and Rusev. However, Lana, who originally showed public support for her husband competing against The Undertaker, recently tweeted second thoughts over The Bulgarian Brute competing in the grisly bout.

    The Casket Match undoubtedly belongs to The Undertaker, as The Demon of Death Valley has claimed victory in several of these harrowing contests, wherein a Superstar only wins when he gets his opponent into the casket and closes the lid. Although Jericho has never been a part of such an ominous showdown, WWE’s first Undisputed Champion has battled in virtually every other kind of match WWE has to offer, and if his extensive résumé says anything, it’s that he knows how to win when it counts.

    The Deadman and Y2J are no strangers to one another. They have competed side-by-side, including the epic Team WWE vs. Team Alliance Match at Survivor Series 2001, as well as against each other, including the Elimination Chamber Match in 2010 where Jericho overcame The Phenom to capture the World Heavyweight Championship.

    Which of the two iconic Superstars will walk out, and which will be carried out in a casket?


    More matches to be announced!

    Re: Greatest Royal Rumble Ever - April 27th

    Yeah I thought that about the women which made me think this was a very poor decision by the WWE.

    I'm all for them expanding into other areas and countries but they shouldn't give up basic values to do so. Intrigued to know who had the idea. I would bet it was Vince and not Hunter.

    Re: Greatest Royal Rumble Ever - April 27th

    A random 50 man Royal Rumble, random Cena vs Triple H, random four way ladder match, the Hardy Boyz returning and No Girls Allowed. Did a 10 year old boy come up with this card?

    Didn’t they just run the first women’s match there not that long ago or was that somewhere else?

    Yeah UAE not Saudi Arabia, think they're a lot more stringent here. WWE and their double standards never get old...

    ^I think that was in India Nicky, but I might be wrong.

    Yeah I see this being on the Network, and I'm highly upset theirs no Matches with the ladies, but maybe something changes from today to April 27th. I wouldn't be shocked to see WWE do a SD Ladies/NXT Ladies vs Raw Ladies to get involved everyone.

    Ya ya UAE. You’re right.

    It is a weird thing. You’re catering to a market you so desperately want yet your shedding a lot of the identity that you’ve tried really hard to establish over the last three or so years. WWE pleasing international markets always has a price.

    Re: Greatest Royal Rumble Ever - April 27th

    Supposedly WWE even coming to the country with this event is something that would have been unheard of previously and that they're slowly making progress as a nation. We'll see how true that is

    No double standard or giving up of basic values here. WWE don't give a shit about women's rights or equality, they care about their bottom line and this is a government sponsored project by Saudi Arabia which means there's likely a fair amount of money behind it. Sure, they're having to fudge it a little bit because of the sustained push they've given the women's division in recent years but they don't give a shit about promoting the idea of equality if it harms their profits in any way; this is likely paying them enough that they aren't worried about what they likely feel will be a minimal backlash from a certain segment of the fanbase. It's far enough away from US soil they probably feel like no one will pay too much attention to it. I'd be surprised if this is live on the Network because it'll just give those that wanna voice their distaste at WWE's decision to do this show without the women's division a focus and a target; any sponsors would likely get the same kind of complaints that Mars got over the Moolah Battle Royal.

    Re: Greatest Royal Rumble Ever Discussion - Friday, April 27th

    First post updated with the latest match card. This looks like it could be one heck of a show and with it being on the Network I sense it is just going to be like a regular pay per view. Wonder what the winner of the Rumble will get though.

    Re: Greatest Royal Rumble Ever Discussion - Friday, April 27th

    I said it in the Raw thread: watch the steel cage match main event.

    It’s already been proven that less is more with Rumbles but I’m still intrigued by the match.

    I hope at some point there's a little something between Trips and Cena to make their match slightly less random and pointless.

    And I hope Jericho comes back to the WWE at this point and it's not just a one time special appearance.

    I think at this point it's best to treat this show like Beast in the East and Roadblock with HHH/Ambrose. It's obviously canon and what not, but aside from a result or two (the rumble and title match result) it isn't really a 'typical' PPV with typical build.

    Colour me surprised. Not only is this gonna be live, it's getting promoted HARD.

    I'll probably watch this in segments because it looks pretty stacked and it looks like a long night.

    Seriously this looks like my old EWR PPVs.

    Not that I'm complaining. My shows were amazing. Scott Keith said so.

    This comment is becoming more and more accurate with every passing match announcement. It's a 10 year old playing EWR.
