5 things that should happen at WWE Greatest Royal Rumble
Just three weeks after presenting its biggest show of the year at WrestleMania 34, WWE will be making a visit to the Middle East as King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah will host first ever WWE event in Saudi Arabia on April 27, 2018.
Not only will the gigantic event feature seven title defences, including the 'Mania rematches for the WWE and Universal Championships, it will also feature the historic 50-man Royal Rumble match.
It will be the first time that the match, usually reserved for the January pay-per-view of the same name, will take place after the 'Mania season.
With two other blockbuster matches in John Cena v Triple H and Undertaker v Rusev in a Casket Match, this event has the potential to be one of the best events ever produced by the promotion.
Since WWE is trying to establish a long relationship with the Saudi Sports Authority, we can expect some unexpected results and outcomes from the star-studded extravaganza. Here are five predictions for WWE Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah.
#5 Triple H squashes John Cena
Ever since his victory over Baron Corbin at Summerslam 2017, John Cena has been on the losing end of six pay-per-view matches, with his recent loss coming in the form of a squash match at WrestleMania 34 against The Undertaker.
Rumours are that the reason WWE decided to keep the match short is that they are planning a rematch between the two at 'Mania next year, and having Cena lose all the pay per view matches followed by having him challenge 'Taker again at 'Mania would present a perfect story.
Also, Cena is not scheduled to be on WWE programming after Greatest Royal Rumble and having him take a loss against the WWE COO, that also in a short match, would not only be the perfect way to write him off the WWE product.
It will also continue his losing streak and will provide the perfect redemption story for future rivalries.
As for HHH, he will certainly be involved in some kind of a rivalry at Summerslam, and a dominating victory here over Big Match John will help him make a strong comeback after his third consecutive loss at 'Mania.
