As we all know by now, WWE’s next big event outside of the United States will be The Greatest Royal Rumble Event taking place at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, April 27. The event will feature seven championship matches, and is promoting appearances by The Undertaker, John Cena, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, Randy Orton, The New Day, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Bray Wyatt.
Despite WWE heavily promoting this star-studded event following a partnership with Turki Al Sheikh and Vince McMahon, the company admits that the details have not been finalized yet. CBS Sports interviewed WWE COO Triple H for their In This Corner Podcast and during the interviewed Triple H discussed this and he admitted that there are still details that have yet to be finalized.
“I think we are still kind of exploring the options on it,” said Triple H. “It’s a little bit of a work in progress. This event sort of came together very, very quickly. It’s three weeks after WrestleMania, which you can imagine putting on a week-long spectacle of that nature and following it up three weeks later in Saudi Arabia with a stadium show takes some logistic work.
Triple H also said:
“We are still working through the process, and I think you’ll see some announcements coming up here as we continue to get further in the card, what the show is and all of that. I think you’ll see announcements of the how, where and when.”
The partnership between Vince McMahon and Turki Al Sheikh started when WWE supported the Saudi Arabian social and economic reform program “Vision 2030.” On February 28, Turki Al Sheikh, who is the Chairman of the Saudi General Sports Authority, posted a tweet of himself along with Vince McMahon and Triple H to show the confirmation of the partnership. Since then, WWE has formulated the Greatest Royal Rumble concept, using superstars from both brands to put together an event to show the solidarity of their partnership.
However, the company has yet to finalize the details of the event, and as Triple H admitted, is still working through the creative process. In addition to the 50-man Royal Rumble event, which is the biggest Royal Rumble in company history, the WWE Championship, Universal Championship, Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship, Raw Tag Team Championship, SmackDown Tag Team Championship and Cruiserweight Championship will all be defended. WWE will also be airing the event on the Network.
