WWE hosts first Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia

WWE Greatest Royal Rumble Live Results

O'Neil entered the Greatest Royal Rumble Match at No39 and made history before even stepping in to the ring. They were interrupted by WWE 205 Live Superstar Ariya Daivari and his brother, former WWE Superstar Shawn Daivari.

Only 24 of the 50 participants have been announced, so we can expect a bunch of surprise entrants. The "Yes!" Man will have an opportunity to get some retribution against the big man, though, when the two Superstars collide at WWE Backlash on Sunday, May 6 on WWE Network.

Just like the women on the roster, Sami Zayn was apparently told that he wasn't needed for the show due to something out of his control.

The show closed out with Braun Strowman winning the first-ever 50-man Royal Rumble by last eliminating fellow giant Big Cass.

Strowman finally got his big moment last night. Reigns, going in as the underdog against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, consumed four German Suplexes as soon as the bell rang; he endured two F5s before mounting any kind of offence, but he countered with four superman punches and four spears for a couple of near counts. Whomever won the Rumble should be able to main event SummerSlam.

Cedric Alexander beat Kalisto to keep hold of his WWE Cruiserweight Championship belt. It felt a step back from WWE, especially with so much focus on the women's revolution.

The Saudi Arabian Sports Authory - who funded WWE's elaborate trip to the country this past Friday - have issued a scarcely believable apology after the company accidentally displayed "scantily clad" women during the show.

Aiyegbusi looked comfortable in the ring despite making his debut in front of an arena of over 50,000 people in Saudi Arabia on a WWE special event. Triple H clarified in an interview that they were in talks for having women superstars perform in their future shows. The 10-year deal will not only be massively profitable for the world's largest wrestling conglomerate but also pave the way for more cultural exchanges in and out of Saudi Arabia. The figure may have been exaggerated and the accumulative revenue probably won't be known until a few months later.

"I think the Middle East, the Saudi region has always had a massive fan base", wrestler Triple-H, now a WWE executive whose real name is Paul Levesque, told CNBC this week.
