Greatest Royal Rumble, WWE superstars such as John Cena, Triple H, Roman Reigns and AJ Styles to make Saudi debut today
The Saudi General Sports officials in partnership with WWE will host the Greatest Royal Rumble event at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah on Friday, April 27. For the first time in history, the Royal Rumble match will feature 50 WWE superstars including John Cena, Triple H, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Shinsuke Nakamura.
This event is part of a 10-year strategic multiplatform partnership in support of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s social and economic reform program. An official statement stated,
“The Greatest Royal Rumble will be a spectacle of historic proportions,” said Vince McMahon, WWE chairman & CEO. “Our partnership with the Saudi General Sports Authority reflects a long-term commitment to present WWE’s world-class entertainment to a global audience on a grander scale than ever before.”
The move is part of a liberalization drive by current Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is seeking to balance unpopular subsidy cuts in an era of low oil prices with more entertainment options – despite opposition from religious hardliners.
