WWE Greatest Royal Rumble match card & rumors

The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is a special event called Greatest Royal Rumble, taking place on Fri., April 27, 2018, at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Because of the time difference, the show will air live at 12 pm ET. It appears to be a mix of a standalone live show and one that takes place within current television storylines.

We're just under two weeks away from showtime and here’s how the card looks:

  • Greatest Royal Rumble

What makes it the “Greatest” is the fact that there will be 50 participants, the most ever. Here’s who is in so far: Daniel Bryan, Braun Strowman, Big Show, Kurt Angle, Elias, Baron Corbin, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Bray Wyatt, Kane, Apollo, Shelton Benjamin, Sin Cara, Chad Gable, Goldust, Titus O’Neil, Mojo Rawley, Dolph Ziggler

  • Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns (Universal championship)

This will be a rematch from WrestleMania 34, and it will be a steel cage match.

  • John Cena vs. Triple H

This seems to have been made for the sake of the two big names involved.

  • Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho (Casket match)

See above. Originally, Rusev was announced for this match but he was yanked for reasons that remain unclear.

  • The Bludgeon Brothers vs. The Usos (SmackDown tag team championship)

Harper and Rowan won the titles at WrestleMania 34. Jimmy and Jey defeated The New Day to earn this match on SmackDown just days later.

  • Seth Rollins vs. The Miz vs. Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe (Intercontinental championship)

This will be a ladder match.

That’s it so far. It’s unclear if WWE will add any more matches to the show.
