What's the story?

WWE have released an incredible behind-the-scenes footage of the Greatest Royal Rumble event on their official YouTube channel. The event took place on April 27th at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

In case you didn’t know…

The Greatest Royal Rumble was touted to be one of the biggest events in the history of WWE, with 65,000+ fans in attendance at the King Abdullah Sports Stadium in Jeddah.

The marquee attraction of the event was the largest ever Royal Rumble match which included 50 Superstars. The match was eventually won by the Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman. Additionally, the event included seven title matches, John Cena vs Triple H and The Undertaker vs Rusev in a Casket Match.

The heart of the matter

The 13-minute video released by WWE delves behind the curtains at the event, showing all the Superstars getting prepared for their matches, and having some lighter moments with each other.

John Cena is seen, greeting the kids and taking selfies with them. He goes on to explain why he wouldn't miss this event for the world.

The Miz is shown having an emotional moment where he reflects on the fact that a kid from Parma, Ohio (where he was born) is getting to travel all over the world, performing in places like Saudi Arabia, where people speak a completely different language, and along with Seth Rollins, is overwhelmed about the extravagant set, comparing it to WrestleMania.

Rusev, Samoa Joe and Karl Anderson are seen out in the hot sun, reflecting on how hot the weather is in Saudi Arabia. Then, Randy Orton, Rusev and Cesaro are seen for a few moments, throwing around a soccer ball.


Daniel Bryan is shown explaining how he intends to survive the Rumble match - by clinging to the bottom rope if Mark Henry comes out!

Roman Reigns is seen explaining why it was important for WWE to have an event in Saudi and how it would open up avenues for other types of entertainment in the future for the company.

Other Superstars including The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Shinsuke Nakamura, AJ Styles and others are seen preparing for their matches.

What's next?

The next WWE pay-per-view Backlash will take place this Sunday at the Prudential Centre in Newark, New Jersey. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live coverage of the event.

Author's take 

Though the Greatest Royal Rumble looked to compete with WrestleMania in terms of grandeur, the event itself failed to live up to the hype, as it failed to see any storyline advance substantially.


Nonetheless, the behind the scenes clip is an incredible watch! Kudos to WWE for the amazing production value. The company had released a similar footage after WrestleMania as well.
