Chris Jericho’s return announced as WWE continues to go all out for Greatest Royal Rumble

WWE continues to load up their debut event in Saudi Arabia, happening live in Jeddah and airing on WWE Network on Friday, April 27.

In addition to Triple H vs. John Cena, a steel cage rematch between Universal Champ Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, a showdown for the vacant Raw Tag Championship and an Intercontinental Title ladder match featuring Seth Rollins, The Miz, Samoa Joe and Finn Bálor, there’s also the 50 man Royal Rumble. And that match just picked up 15 more names, including some major firepower:


“Fifteen WWE Superstars, including Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, 2016 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner Baron Corbin, four-time Tag Team Champions The New Day, and three-time World Heavyweight Champion and 9-time Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho, have officially entered the first-ever 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match, which will take place at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m. AST.

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. It will also be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East with regional broadcast information forthcoming.

WWE Superstars Apollo, Shelton Benjamin, Sin Cara, Elias, Chad Gable, Goldust, Titus O’Neil, Mojo Rawley and Dolph Ziggler have also declared for the first-ever Greatest Royal Rumble Match.”
