The WWE made a decision to kick the night off with one of the event's marquee matches, Triple H Vs John Cena. While the annual January Rumble features 30 entrants, this one will have a whopping 50.

O'Neil entered the Greatest Royal Rumble at number 39 on Friday.

One of the segments that will surely be talked about involved the introduction of four Saudi wrestlers who have been selected to train at the WWE Performance Center in the USA and be a part of the company. 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.

Reigns speared Lesnar through the cage to end the match, and Lesnar was announced the victor as the broadcast team scrambled to explain that Lesnar's feet hit the ground first.

Strowman finally got his big moment last night.

However, the announcement of the event didn't sit too well with the majority of fans as it was revealed that no female WWE superstars would be able to compete or appear at the event. The show had a series of impeccable performances, with Daniel Bryan breaking the record for longest stint in the Rumble and the ladder match participants stealing another show. Who will leave Jeddah as the Universal Champion and what will be the cost of the victory?

Wrestling fans might have been wondering why Sami Zayn wasn't at the Greatest Royal Rumble pay-per-view in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday night.

Women were permitted to attend the show, but only with male chaperones.

Hopefully, the WWE will find a way to make it up to the women of the WWE.

The elevation of Mohammed bin Salman to crown prince has heightened tensions between the two countries, with Saudi Arabia nearly doubling its military expenditure in recent years and Iran expanding its presence in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

Throughout the broadcast, announcers harped on about just how progressive Saudi Arabia is thanks to their multi-billion dollar Vision 2030 programme, propaganda paid for as part of the regime's propagation of soft diplomacy. The figure may have been exaggerated and the accumulative revenue probably won't be known until a few months later.
