Strowman finally got his big moment last night.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia hosted WWE's Biggest event outside the United States in over 25 years last night as The Greatest Royal Rumble took place in Jeddah. The event, that featured the largest Royal Rumble match in WWE history, ended with Braun Strowman holding the giant trophy and a championship belt above his head as he outlasted 49 other men to emerge as the winner of the gigantic 50-man match.

Elsewhere on the show, Brock Lesnar controversially defeated Roman Reigns in a short rematch to their 'Mania disaster, Styles and Nakamura's rivalry took a vicious turn as their rematch ended in a count-out and Hardy/Wyatt duo finally completed their journey to the top of Raw's tag team division. The show had a series of impeccable performances, with Daniel Bryan breaking the record for longest stint in the Rumble and the ladder match participants stealing another show.

However, the show was not without it's fair share of setbacks and was, in no capacity, the perfect show that it was shaping up to be. WWE missed a few opportunities that might have worked for them in the long. Here are 4 such missed opportunities from the Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah.
