5 wrestlers who were dearly missed at The Greatest Royal Rumble
A few wrestlers missed a golden opportunity to make a statement on a large platform.
The Greatest Royal Rumble event was a real success considering the crowd's investment in the matches. The stadium, with 60,000+ people, cheered for their favourite Superstars at the top of their voices, which made the show even better.
WWE left no stone unturned in making the evening as grand as possible. The who's who of the industry made an appearance. When polarising figures like John Cena and Triple H opened the show, you knew how magnificent and magnanimous the event was going to be.
However, not everyone on the roster was present for the occasion. Whether it was an injury or cultural and political differences, a handful of Superstars missed the fun and we dearly missed them.
#5 Zack Ryder
Zack Ryder was advertised for the 50-man Royal Rumble match but got injured earlier this week when he damaged his knee during a taped fight for WWE's Main Event. The former Intercontinental Champion headed to Orlando while the rest of the locker room lefta for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Ryder is one of the most underrated performers of the modern era. Whenever he is in for a push, one thing or the other has always put him on the sidelines. It is a bitter blow, as he was out of action for a good part of last year as well.
