WWE announced the following title matches for the Greatest Royal Rumble that will be held on April 27 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium.
-Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy for the Raw Tag Titles.
-The Miz vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe in a four-way ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship.
Powell’s POV: It’s interesting that they have booked The Bar for a tag title defense. Obviously, they could always insert Braun Strowman and his WrestleMania partner into this slot if they go with a title change at WrestleMania, but my guess is that Sheamus and Cesaro are the tag champs headed into this match. If you missed it earlier, WWE also announced Triple H vs. John Cena for this event, which will be headlined by a 50-man Royal Rumble. The show is expected to be broadcast on WWE Network.
