Powell’s POV: WWE previously announced Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy for the Raw Tag Titles, but that has been pulled from the show. The new match will feature Sheamus and Cesaro facing the winners of the Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt vs. The Revival match that will take place next week on Raw. WWE is advertising that the Greatest Royal Rumble will have a total of six title matches and it will be streamed live in North America at 11 a.m. CT (noon ET, 9 a.m. PT) on WWE Network.
