In a few weeks time, the WWE will air their 'Greatest Royal Rumble' event live on the WWE network from Saudi Arabia.

The event, first announced last month, is being billed as a big deal by the company, and it is seen by many as their opportunity to break into a brand new, very lucrative, market.

On the show, every title will be defended, John Cena will face Triple H, The Undertaker will wrestle Chris Jericho, and a 50 man Royal Rumble match will take place, featuring major stars from the current rosters and several legends of the business.

While the company has not yet announced a prize for the winner of the match, it seems unlikely that the whole thing will just be for nothing, and the winner will, at the very least, probably receive a title shot of some sort.

The winner of the match will be the first ever superstar to win a match this big, and their character will get plenty of bragging rights going forward. So, who will the WWE choose to win such a match? Let's take a look at the 10 best candidates to the win the Greatest Royal Rumble.

#10 Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman finds himself in a strange situation at the moment. Having just won the tag team titles, with a 10-year-old boy, he has vacated the belts and has no feud on the table.

This has been the case for Braun since the turn of the year, when it became apparent that he would not be competing for the Universal Title at WrestleMania, despite what fans wanted.

While there is no clear prize on the table for the winner of this match yet, if the company decides to award the winner a title shot at a later date, then having Braun Strowman walk away victorious may help him build him back up, and could also be seen as a goodwill gesture to the fans.

Plus, it's a Royal Rumble, and we all know how much the company love to push the idea of a big man being unstoppable in such an event.
