In a recent statement released on March 26, WWE announced a few matchups that are scheduled to take place at the Greatest Royal Rumble on April 12, including the bout featuring John Cena going head-to-head with Triple H at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, Jeddah, in their first singles match ever since 2010.
“RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA and STAMFORD, Conn. — For the first time since 2010, John Cena will go head-to-head with Triple H at the Greatest Royal Rumble event at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m. AST. Tickets for this historic event are available this Saturday, March 31, at 12 midnight AST via ticketingboxoffice.com. Tickets will also be available at 10 a.m. AST at Virgin stores throughout Saudi Arabia. Ticket prices start at 20 SAR.
Additionally, the Greatest Royal Rumble event will feature an Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match: Seth Rollins vs. Finn Bálor vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe, and a Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The Hardy Boyz vs. Sheamus & Cesaro. A Ladder Match is when a championship title is suspended above the ring, and the first Superstar to climb to the top of a ladder and retrieve the title is the winner and champion.
General Sports Authority of Saudi Arabia Chairman, His Excellency Turki Al Sheikh, WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia invite the world to celebrate this signature event, which includes the first-ever 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble Match and seven championship matches.
Fans will also get to see WWE Superstars Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Shinsuke Nakamura, among others.
The inaugural Greatest Royal Rumble will deliver live family-friendly entertainment to passionate fans across the Middle East. It is the first event as part of a long-term partnership between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Additional event details, including broadcast information, will be available in the coming weeks.”
It is to be noted that neither will any female Superstar be present on the show nor will any Women’s Championship be defended at the event. WWE has whole-heartedly welcomed female fans including kids to attend the Greatest Royal Rumble.
