WWE Greatest Royal Rumble 2018: Date, Time, Matches & Location


The Greatest Royal Rumble is a once in a lifetime event, featuring an unprecedented 50-man Royal Rumble match. And for the first time ever, the WWE will host a pay-per-view live from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Many great matches are scheduled for this event, including a WrestleMania rematch between “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar and “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns inside a steel cage match for the WWE Universal Championship.

Update (4/17/18): Rusev vs. The Undertaker in a Casket Match is back on! Chris Jericho was initially going to replace Rusev in the match, but “The Bulgarian Brute” is back by popular demand!

There are plenty of high-profile, main-event level matches to look forward to at the Greatest Royal Rumble extravaganza. “Y2J” Chris Jericho is scheduled to return to the ring to take on “The Deadman” The Undertaker in a casket match. “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev was originally penned to be The Undertaker’s opponent. However, he was replaced by Y2J following a tweet where Rusev told The Undertaker, “Bury me softly, brother.” Rusev’s video interview with TMZ was also poorly received, as he called The Undertaker “a lil’ past his prime.”

“The Game” Triple H is scheduled to wrestle as he’ll face off against former 16-time world champion John Cena. Both men are looking to make up for their disappointing WrestleMania defeats. Cena wants to make-up for a squash match loss to The Undertaker. Meanwhile, Triple H wants to remind the fans that he’s still a badass even though he got beat up by “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey at ‘Mania.

The WWE fans at the King Abdullah International Stadium will also see the crowning of the new WWE Raw Tag Team Championships as the tournament for the vacant titles conclude at this event.

Former WWE World Champion Rey Mysterio is rumored to take part in the 50-man Royal Rumble match. What other surprises are in store for the fans at the Greatest Royal Rumble?
