So now instead of Rusev we get to see the Casket Of Jericho. Drink it in mannnnnnn.

Not sure who my Oil Rumble winner is yet. I would have thought though that E would have announced the winner can have a title shot.

Nobody seems to know how many tickets have been sold. I suspect the venue will look dead and only have a few thousand.

WWE will hopefully hand a future title shot to the Royal Rumble winner to give it more purpose.

Read a report that said the original booking saw Roman Reigns beating Brock at Wrestlemania then having the rematch with Lesnar in Saudi then plans changed so does that mean we can expect Roman to lift the title here? I hope not but my gut feeling is that’s what will happen as I think WWE just delayed Roman’s win for shock value at Mania.

It’s a good card and potentially a better show than Wrestlemania.

This is what i meant also when i said earlier there will be a big title change

Theres the shock factor of mania meaning that WWE trolled everyone who had Reigns as a certainty to win, plus then you have the WOW factor from this super event.

I see it as similar to when they had styles win the title on a house show - it made the fans think twice about expecting to see the same old same old at every house show and that big title changes were a possibility

Quote The feeling is that Roman Reigns winning the Universal title is imminent and probably likely to occur in Saudi Arabia at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, because it's doubtful that Vince McMahon will book him to lose a cage match. The popular belief seems to be that McMahon has not given up on Reigns but has simply postponed his title win to a later date.

-- However, there remains an outside chance that McMahon could abandon a Reigns title win altogether and go with someone like Braun Strowman instead, due to the fact that Strowman is significantly more popular. The downside with Strowman is that he's not as versatile in the ring and would need to be protected more in his matches and booking.

Vince getting the title on to his number one boy, at a babyface friendly venue that still will believe in kayfabe.
 
No female seen on the card, not even in a none wrestling role because the money is more important than the women's revolution.
 
I don't think Finn Balor will be wearing his LGBT rainbow coloured ring attire there like he did at Wrestlemania.
 
Vince is the ultimate troll and the show hashtag is going to be full of hate when it's over.

Women are not allowed to compete in sporting events in Saudi Arabia. I am not making that up it is illegal there lol. Having the RR there with no female match, after the historic first all female rumble the next rumble it won't be on the card at all.
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

Yup, that means it's definitely going to happen.

Yeah E are more bothered about the cash and always have been. It's like when they go on about women breaking down barriers, when it's them who put up these barriers for them for years.

I wonder why Rusev is back to facing The Undertaker......I wish E would make up their mind.

Poor Rusev having to buried in two ways by the old man cripple.
