WWE announced the first five entrants in the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match. Daniel Bryan, Kane, Big Show, Braun Strowman, and Bray Wyatt are officially advertised for match, which will be held on April 27 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: Big Show’s return is a nice surprise given that he underwent hip surgery in October. WWE previously announced that the show will also feature Triple H vs. John Cena, Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy for the Raw Tag Titles, and The Miz vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe in a four-way ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship.
