WWE announces broadcast plans for Greatest Royal Rumble

Given the star power involved, and Jerry Lawler letting it slip he and Jim Ross would call the event, we’ve been anticipating news about how WWE would televise Greatest Royal Rumble almost since the company’s first show from Saudi Arabia was announced.

That news hit today (April 4) with word the event in Jeddah’s King Abdullah Sports City Stadium would stream on WWE Network at noon Eastern on April 27, with a one hour Kickoff available on all the company’s online channels - just like a standard pay-per-view (PPV) from the United States.

Announcers haven’t been confirmed, and an estimated run time isn’t provided. But considering they’re promising seven title matches, Triple H vs. John Cena and the 50-man Rumble-style battle royal which gives the show its name, it’s hard to imagine it won’t run longer than three hours.

Still, that’s the beauty of the Network. You can watch this whenever you want, in whatever sized chunks you want, skipping whatever stuff you’re not interested in.

Who’s excited to punch up this #content at the end of the month, or whenever your schedule allows?
