Who will win the 50-man Battle Royal in Saudi Arabia?
Apr 30 2018
World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., an integrated media and entertainment company, engages in the sports entertainment business in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Asia Pacific, and Latin America. WWE did not have a superstar from Saudi Arabia to capture the live audience's imagination, but Strowman is a specimen who is more monster than man and clearly caught the attention of the crowd.
Overall, the event served as a standalone affair that did not create new storylines nor saw any titles change hands beyond the duo of "Woken" Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt winning the vacant Raw tag-team titles. Here are 4 such missed opportunities from the Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah.
Along with Zayn, no women were part of the Greatest Royal Rumble event either. In the reaper's first Casket Match in a decade, at the end both Aiden English and "Bulgarian Brute" found themselves "resting in piece".
"The General Sport Authority would like to apologize to the viewers and attendees of last night's WWE event that took place in Jeddah, over the indecent scene involving women that appeared as an ad before a segment".
Other titles were on the line with perhaps the one with the most interest being Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns in a cage match. This shatters the record previously held by Rey Mysterio, who lasted for one hour, two minutes and 12 seconds in the 2006 Royal Rumble Match, which Mysterio won. But Cedric got the win when he countered Kalisto's Selina del Sol in to a vicious looking Lumbar Check. New Raw Tag Team Champions were crowned since the previous champions vacated the belts.
United States Championship: Jeff Hardy (c) def. Jinder Mahal (with Sunil Singh) by pin following the Swanton Bomb to retain. It was poor in its right, but it also performed the prior title match pointless.
WWE Championship: AJ Styles (c) and Shinsuke Nakamura fight to a double count-out.
Additionally, there was the four-way ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship, which featured some of the top talent in the company: Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins, The Miz, and Finn Balor. As a result, AJ Styles (c) retains. The two men had the exact match you'd have expected them to have inside a steel cage.
