WWE's grand event in Saudi Arabia, the Greatest Royal Rumble is just a day away. The event is set to rival WrestleMania with a stacked card and a magnificent stage being set-up at the King Abdullah Sports Stadium at Jeddah.

Ten matches are set for the card including the 50-man Royal Rumble match, and seven titles will be defended at the event, including all singles and tag team titles except, of course, the women's titles.

With that in mind, let's have a look at all the major rumours surrounding the Greatest Royal Rumble event.

Who will walk out as the Champion on Friday?

At WrestleMania 34, Roman Reigns was largely expected to walk out of the Superdome as the new Universal Champion. However, WWE pulled off a shocker when they decided to have Lesnar retain the title after a brutal beat down on The Big Dog.

When the rematch was announced for the GRR, fans expected that Reigns would certainly win this time around, mostly due to the fact that Lesnar is not on a full-time contract with WWE anymore and because of Reigns' popularity in the Middle East.

However, it has now been reported that WWE is yet to decide the outcome of the match, and will probably take a decision at the last minute. It is safe to say that after these reports, and after the WrestleMania shocker, the outcome of the Universal Championship match is almost unpredictable right now.
