Greatest Royal Rumble 2018: Final Results, Recap, And All Entrants In Main Event
Let's get ready to rumble.
The Greatest Royal Rumble just wrapped up, and it happened on a Friday morning. It was weird but refreshing at the same time, and the main event was a 50-man battle royal, the largest Royal Rumble match in WWE history, and it had a few surprise entrants. In addition, there were seven title matches at the event as well as the return of the Undertaker and Daniel Bryan breaking a major Rumble record.
Greatest Royal Rumble hits the WWE Network today at 5 PM BST / 12 PM ET / 9 AM PT and takes place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. There are 10 matches on the card, featuring wrestlers from Raw, Smackdown, and 205 Live. If you don't have the WWE Network, you can sign up for one month free, as this is the only way to watch the event.
