The card for WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia is starting to take shape.
Three matches for the show were announced this morning: John Cena vs. Triple H in their first singles meeting since 2010, a four-way Intercontinental Championship ladder match that features The Miz, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, and Samoa Joe, and Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus defending their titles against The Hardys. Both Jeff Hardy and Joe have yet to return from their respective injuries, but that’s considered to be imminent.
The Miz vs. Rollins vs. Balor at WrestleMania 34 will decide who enters the Greatest Royal Rumble as IC Champion. Braun Strowman and a partner will also be challenging for Cesaro & Sheamus’ titles at WrestleMania.
The Greatest Royal Rumble takes place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on April 27th (at noon Eastern time) and is the first event in WWE’s ten-year agreement with the Saudi General Sports Authority. A 50-man Royal Rumble match is the event’s marquee attraction, with all seven men’s titles also set to be defended. There will be no women’s wrestlers on the show, but female fans are allowed to attend.
WWE still notes that broadcast information will be made available in the coming weeks, but it’s been indicated that the Greatest Royal Rumble will be shown on the WWE Network. It’s already been announced to air live on Sky Box Office in the UK and Main Event in Australia.
WWE made the following announcement regarding tickets for the show: “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.”
