Cruiserweight title match, more names set for Greatest Royal Rumble

With the addition of a Cruiserweight Championship match, the card for the Greatest Royal Rumble has been finalized.

Cedric Alexander defending his title against Kalisto became the last match to be announced for the show. Kalisto won a gauntlet match on this week's 205 Live to earn the title shot, coming in as the final entrant and eliminating Drew Gulak. TJP, Mustafa Ali, and Tony Nese were the three other wrestlers who participated in the gauntlet.

WWE also officially confirmed Rey Mysterio, Mark Henry, The Great Khali, Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, and Kevin Owens for the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match. All of those names had been advertised for the show prior to this announcement.

Henry was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year and hasn't wrestled since the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33. Khali's last appearance for the company came when he helped Jinder Mahal defeat Randy Orton at Battleground 2017.

The Greatest Royal Rumble streams live on the WWE Network from King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at noon Eastern time on Friday. There will also be a one-hour pre-show before the main card starts.
