WWE Hosting 50-Man Royal Rumble In Saudi Arabia

WWE is calling the event at the end of April "The Greatest Royal Rumble."

Today on WWE.com, the wrestling promotion announced there will be a Royal Rumble featuring 50 wrestlers in April. The event takes place nineteen days after Wrestlemania 34.

The Saudi General Sports Authority, in partnership with WWE, will present the Greatest Royal Rumble event at the King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27. For the first time ever, the Royal Rumble Match will feature 50 WWE Superstars. As part of this historic event, fans will see WWE Superstars John Cena, Triple H, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Shinsuke Nakamura, among others.

Ticket and broadcast information will be available in the coming weeks. This event is part of a 10-year strategic multiplatform partnership in support of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s social and economic reform program.

“The Greatest Royal Rumble will be a spectacle of historic proportions,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO. “Our partnership with the Saudi General Sports Authority reflects a long-term commitment to present WWE’s world-class entertainment to a global audience on a grander scale than ever before.”

There has never been a Royal Rumble with as many participants as 50 but there was a 40-man Royal Rumble in 2011 which was advertised as the biggest Royal Rumble match to date.

Fightful Wrestling will be providing results for the 50-man Royal Rumble.
