Brock Lesnar, Undertaker and Kurt Angle enjoy a meal before the Greatest Royal Rumble

What's the story?

With the Greatest Royal Rumble event taking place in Jeddah tomorrow, Vince McMahon and the rest of the WWE roster have spent today enjoying a meal with Saudi Arabian dignitaries ahead of what looks to be a monumental show tomorrow.

And, well, in this age of social media - of course, photographs and videos have found their way online, with Brock Lesnar and Undertaker being videoed in conversation next to Mr McMahon.

In case you didn't know...

The Greatest Royal Rumble is already shaping to be a WrestleMania-calibre event with a plethora of Championship matches accompanying the 50-man Royal Rumble Match in Saudi Arabia.

The show looks like it could be well on its way to being one of the biggest pay-per-views WWE has ever staged - and the card lives up to expectations too, with Roman Reigns challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship in a Cage Match, The Undertaker facing Rusev in a Casket Match and Triple H scheduled to go one on one with John Cena - as well as all male main roster championship being up for grabs.

The heart of the matter

Well, several WWE Superstars have been sharing photos and videos from the event - with Kurt Angle taking to social media to post a video of the scene.

What wasn't visible in his video, though, were the two men to his right, seen in this video below...


The Raw General Manager did, however, share a selfie with the Deadman.

Several other Superstars can be seen in the videos posted enjoying the banquet, with Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns and Mark Henry all visible in what looks like a main roster feast before the huge event kicks off tomorrow.

What's next?

The Greatest Royal Rumble will be shown live globally on WWE Network from the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27.

Author's take

Well, this is pretty cool to see. It's always great to see WWE Superstars kicking back and having fun, and it's even more awesome to see Brock Lesnar and Undertaker enjoying a meal and having a chat while sat next to Vince McMahon, and I can't wait to watch the actual event tomorrow!
