What to know how about the Greatest Royal Rumble, including when it starts, how long it runs, what the matches are and more.
WWE’s most confusing event of the year is Friday in Saudi Arabia.
The Greatest Royal Rumble has a card as good as any WrestleMania but without any of the buildup. Will this end up being a top-tier pay per view or simply a glorified house show? That remains to be seen. At the very least, North American fans will be treated to some rare mid-day live wrestling.
The show is part of WWE’s 10-year agreement with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a venture tied to the country’s “Vision 2030” modernization campaign. WWE is reportedly getting oodles of money for this event, so expect the show to be a big spectacle.
