Braun Strowman Greatest Royal Rumble
The monster towering over Jeddah.

The WWE's Greatest Royal Rumble, an odd mixture of house show and WrestleMania-caliber event, has come and gone. All the champions retained their titles, so is it possible to discern who the biggest winners and losers were since the status quo largely continued?

Yes, because despite the titles staying put, some challengers made big statements, hinting at the company's direction going forward. Things should begin to settle down after Backlash next week.


Winners: Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt

The only championship that did change hands was the vacant Raw Tag Team Championship. Sending The Bar permanently off to SmackDown, Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt captured the belts. The odd couple seems to be catching on with fans, and though the Raw tag team division still has a lot of rebuilding left to do, it's heading in the right direction under their tutelage.

Who their challengers will be after Backlash remains to be seen, but the potential for a better division than last year is now present.
