The Greatest Royal Rumble was one of the grandest events WWE produced outside the USA. There was everything you could think about. Returning legends? Check. Confused ending? Check. A first-of-a-kind match? Double check.

Like every other event, this one too hinted to the fans what direction WWE is heading in. Here are 5 things we learned from the Greatest Royal Rumble.

#5 AJ Styles can be aggressive

AJ Styles destroys Shinsuke Nakamura after the match

AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura didn't do justice to their WrestleMania match. You don't have to be a pro-wrestling geek to tell that their Wrestle Kingdom 12 match was way better. But one thing which we learned from the aftermath was that their rivalry was set to continue.

Prior to WrestleMania, both were masterclass technicians relying only on their arsenal. Now, things are completely different. Nakamura had shown that he would do whatever it took to become the WWE champion. Low blow after low blow made him one of the most hated heels of the blue brand.

Did you think Styles was going to keep quiet and accept the humiliation? No way. We knew 'The Phenomenal One' would retaliate. He displayed his ruthless aggressive side by hitting a Phenomenal Forearm outside the ring.

This altercation makes their match at Backlash a more worthwhile watch. We won't see the typical match where the competitors wrestle each other to become the champion. We will see more purpose in this one. It will be an unethical, wicked and villainous Shinsuke Nakamura versus an aggressive, intemperate and berserk AJ Styles.
