5 facts and predictions for the Greatest Royal Rumble show
WrestleMania 34 rematches and more! Here are 5 things you need to know about the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia.
WWE is all set to host a humongous event on April 27!
The Greatest Royal Rumble show will be held at the King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. A spiritual successor to events like the beast in the east or the Madison Square Garden special.
At first, we had thought that this event will just be a passable glorified live event but with each new announcement, the calibre of this show keeps increasing.
The ultra-conservative nature of the Kingdom has cast its shadow on the show as there are no women's matches on the card. Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss fought a historic match a few weeks ago in the UAE but no similar history will be created at this event.
Despite such setbacks, it seemingly will be an enjoyable show, so here are five facts and predictions for the Greatest Royal Rumble show.
#5 The Undertaker's next match
The Undertaker was set to face Rusev in a casket match on April 27th (Also known as Rusev Day!)
But for undisclosed reasons, Rusev was replaced with Chris Jericho. Even the most dedicated fan of Rusev will not be disappointed at this replacement.
Chris Jericho was originally set to compete in the 50 man Royal Rumble match but the rumoured backstage heat on Rusev and his subsequent removal from the Casket Match has given way for this dream match.
The Undertaker is fresh from the 'squash' match against John Cena at WrestleMania 34 and Jericho is making his in ring return for WWE after the five star match against Kenny Omega on NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom show.
The Undertaker is the favourite here, seeing the match is a casket match.
