WWE's Greatest Royal Rumble to feature seven title matches


WWE continues to make announcements regarding next month's Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia.

We now have a better idea of what the card will look like, with WWE advertising that there will be seven title matches on the show. The WWE, Universal, Intercontinental, United States, and Cruiserweight Championships will be on the line, along with the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team titles. It's notable that neither Women's Championship is mentioned in that list.

The event's marquee attraction is the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match, so it appears that at least some people will be wrestling twice. John Cena, Triple H, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, and Shinsuke Nakamura have been announced for the show.

King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia is set to host the Greatest Royal Rumble on April 27th. Tickets will be made available on March 31st, and the show is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. AST (which is noon Eastern in the United States).

WWE hasn't revealed their broadcast plans for the show, but Roman Reigns said in an interview last week that he believes it will be a "huge" WWE Network special.
