Powell’s POV: WWE added the Styles vs. Nakamura match today. Bray Wyatt and Kane have been pulled from the Greatest Royal Rumble match, while Chris Jericho is in match after briefly being listed as Undertaker’s opponent. WWE also gave Apollo his last name back in the official listing of entrants. The Greatest Royal Rumble will be streamed live in North America at 11 a.m. CT (noon ET, 9 a.m. PT) on WWE Network. I will have live coverage as the show airs, but I will avoid listing spoilers in our headlines that day for the courtesy of fans who have to watch the show on delay.
