WWE Greatest Royal Rumble which took place on April 27, 2018 at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia was the first Pay-Per-View event in the Kingdom as per the 10-year agreement between Saudi General Sports Authority and WWE. The Greatest Royal Rumble which featured the historic first-ever 50-Man Royal Rumble Match won by none other than Braun Strowman, remained witness to several records broken at the event.
With Superstars battling out each other inside the squared circle to add a historic achievement or two to their names, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also saw some first time incidents that will go down in WWE history.
Let’s take a look at the following 11 records and trivias that the jaw-dropping 60,000 strong King Abdullah Sports City Stadium remained witness to, at WWE Greatest Royal Rumble.
11. Daniel Bryan And Kurt Angle Exchanged Blows For The First Time
Current WWE Monday Night RAW General Manager Kurt Angle and former SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan came to work together for the same wrestling company for the first time in spring 2017. Although at that time, both Angle and Bryan were expected never to compete in the ring ever, fate ultimately brought these two wrestling greats face to face at the first-ever 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Although these two men exchanged blows for the first time in a ring during Angle’s final minute or so before the 1996 Gold Medallist was eliminated by Elias, WWE made it sure not to over-expose and keep fans craving for more in what remains a dream match for the WWE Universe.
