5 things WWE got wrong at the Greatest Royal Rumble event
With many terrible booking decisions, this event turned out to be a very forgettable one.
WWE promoted The Greatest Royal Rumble as an event that was of the same importance as WrestleMania. However, after witnessing the way this “historic” event played out, it is safe to say that WWE did not even try to make an effort to exceed the vivid expectations of their fanbase.
Therefore, the Greatest Royal Rumble became nothing more than a glorified house show for the majority of the WWE Universe. It did not have any effect on the primary narratives being booked in the company right now. That is truly disappointing, as this event had the potential to rectify any complaints fans had after WrestleMania, as the matches on both cards were similar.
However, from uneventful matches to mind-boggling conclusions, WWE missed the mark in making this event feel significant. This resulted in numerous aspects of the show falling to resonate with the WWE Universe. Here are five things WWE got wrong at the event.
#1 An uneventful Royal Rumble match
The 50-man Royal Rumble match was marketed as the biggest Royal Rumble in WWE history as it was going to define an era of Royal Rumble matches. However, halfway through the bout, it was evident that this was proving to be one of the least engaging Rumble matches in the contest's storied history.
Filled to the brim with main roster mid-card jobbers and lesser known NXT talent, WWE produced one of the worst line-ups in Royal Rumble history after spoiling all the big surprises during the build-up to this event. This turned one of the company’s most exciting match into a tedious affair.
Other than the fact that Braun Strowman deserved to win this match, this match might be forgotten in weeks to come.
