Two more title matches set for WWE Greatest Royal Rumble


Two more title matches have been set for the Greatest Royal Rumble later this month.

Jinder Mahal will get a rematch for the United States title at the event. Having just won it at WrestleMania a couple of weeks ago, he lost the championship tonight on Raw to Jeff Hardy after switching to Raw. Following the loss, he immediately invoked his rematch clause.

Meanwhile, the new team of Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt defeated the Revival tonight, effectively putting them in the Raw tag team title match against former champions The Bar. The titles were vacated after Braun Strowman and Nicholas, who beat The Bar at WrestleMania, gave the titles to Kurt Angle saying that due to other commitments Nicholas couldn’t defend the titles.

Other title matches announced for the show include Brock Lesnar defending the Universal title against Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins facing Finn Balor, The Miz and Samoa Joe in a ladder match for the Intercontinental title and The Bludgeon Brothers defending the Smackdown tag team titles against The Usos.

Beyond the 50 man Royal Rumble match, additional matches that have been announced include John Cena taking on Triple H and The Undertaker squaring off against Rusev in a casket match.

The event will take place April 27 at King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It will air live on the WWE Network.
