Earlier today, WWE announced that it will host the ‘Greatest Royal Rumble’ in Saudi Arabia next month. The grand event will include 50 WWE superstars and will be held at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on April 27th.
“The Greatest Royal Rumble will be a spectacle of historic proportions,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO. “Our partnership with the Saudi General Sports Authority reflects a long-term commitment to present WWE’s world-class entertainment to a global audience on a grander scale than ever before.”
WWE superstars advertised for the show include John Cena, Triple H, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and Shinsuke Nakamura. The ticket and the broadcast information will be made available by the WWE in the coming weeks.
The biggest ever Royal Rumble in terms of the number of entrants took place before this in 2011, where we saw 40 WWE superstars fighting for an opportunity to main event Wrestlemania.
