WWE and Saudi Arabia have worked hard to get to this day and a lot of money is on the line as well. Only time will tell how much WWE is truly benefiting for doing this show but it’s likely to be a substantial number.
The Greatest Royal Rumble was in Jeddah on April 27th which is likely to just be the start of a 10-year partnership between Vince McMahon and Company with the Saudis. Plenty of controversies has been stirred up with the existence of this event along.
Although the winner of the actual Greatest Royal Rumble match won’t win much except for a trophy the magnitude of this massive event.
Every men’s title will be defended in Jeddah since women weren’t allowed to make the trip. We also get a Casket Match and those are always fun. So let’s get right to ti and see what happened in Saudi Arabia.
Triple H vs John Cena
The event kicked off with more pyrotechnics than WWE has used in the past two years and they immediately spoke on commentary about how this event will mark the beginning of a change for Saudi Arabia and their 2030 pledge, but more on that later.
Triple H went out during John Cena’s entrance to greet some little kids while Big Match John ran down the ramp where children in t-shirts were all lined up on both sides of him. So he literally ran through a sea of children on his way to the ring while even more fireworks exploded in the sky above them in the domed arena.
While Cena and Triple H felt each other out doing a test of strength the announce team brought up how Triple H’s last match was against Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey. One of those two people weren’t allowed to come to the show but they were both billed as defeating Trips at Mania.
Triple H caught a punch on Cena and did the “you can’t see me” gesture so Cena came back but Triple H slowed things down as he punched Cena’s jaw and then John started selling Triple H’s assault. They obviously had time to kill.
Cena came back with some shoulder tackles but Triple H stopped his momentum. Then they traded punches as Corey Graves said: “nobody wants to trade hands with John Cena it’s like he’s swinging cinder blocks.”
But Triple H took control and tried for a Pedigree but Cena turned it into an AA which was blocked when Triple H grabbed the top rope. But Cena hit his slam and 5 Knuckles Shuffle but Triple H jumped up and stopped him. Then Trips did his own version of the 5 Knuckle Shuffle complete with DX crotch chop. The crowd popped at those references and there was a pretty loud, “you can’t see me” but who knows what is put through on speakers anymore.
Cena went for a top rope move and Triple H countered with a nasty-looking powerbomb looking thing that people called a spinebuster but in reality, Cena just took a top rope back bump on his own.
Cena locked on the STF and The Game eventually transitioned out but Cena then hit a 5 Knuckle Shuffle and an AA. 1-2-kick out and the Saudis went wild!
Cena went for another AA but Triple H countered into a Pedigree for a two count. Triple H went into another Pedigree but Triple H was countered once again. Cena locked on an STF and then transitioned that into an AA. Cena launched Triple H into the turnbuckle with a slingshot and hit another AA just to be safe before covering for the win.
Then John Cena cut a promo in the ring that got over huge with the Saudi audience. He said no matter what is going on in his life it’s an honor and a privilege to be a part of the Greatest Royal Rumble and then he thanked the Saudis for their hospitality.
Winner: John Cena via pinfall
Cedric Alexander vs Kalisto – Cruiserweight Title Match
The Soul Of 205 Live was set to put his title on the line in Saudi Arabia against a former Cruiserweight Champion.
Cedric and Kalisto were working very hard doing some fast moves to start off this match. They moved outside and Kalisto hit a springboard flipping dive to the floor before the action moved inside. Kalisto climbed to the top rope and jumped over Cedric just to end up on the apron again so Cedric could kick him down and hit a dive of his own.
While Michael Cole explained that the floor was reserved for the Saudi Royal Family, Cedric hit a beautiful dropkick that caught Kalisto right in the head. Then they moved to the mat where Cedric kept him down with a submission hold.
Then Kalisto came back with some moves and eventually hit a nice DDT for a near fall. Later on, Kalisto almost won the match after hitting a seated top rope Spanish Fly but he couldn’t seal the deal.
Alexander tried for a Lumbar Check but it was countered into a Salida Del Sol attempt but Cedric turned that into another Lumbar Check which he finally hit for the win.
Winner and Still Cruiserweight Champion: Cedric Alexander via pinfall
The Bar vs Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt – Raw Tag Team Title Match
The Saudi Arabian audience didn’t seem to be about the delete chant but there were plenty of fireflies in Jeddah. It’s also a great thing The Bar wear sunglasses to the ring because there were a ton of lights shining during their entrance.
This match between two Americans vs an Irishman and Swissman in Saudi Arabia kicked off and the crowd seemed to be Woken for it. Matt and Cesaro traded taunts at first and people started picking up on yelling, “delete.”
Then Bray got the tag but he quickly started taking abuse especially once Sheamus was tagged in. But The Deleter Of Worlds soon took control and had a moment where the crowd cheered them as The Bar went outside.
Matt went for a Twist Of Fate but Sheamus blocked it then Cesaro hit a cheap shot but the referee missed it. Bray’s rage kept the referee distracted but Matt took more damage outside and then they returned to the ring so Sheamus could keep Matt away from making the tag.
The Bar tagged in and out of the match and Matt Hardy kept taking everything they could throw at him. But he didn’t let them get a three count on him. But then Bray got the tag and started taking it to the Swiss Superman.
“Whatever happened to Bray in that lake it completely changed him,” Michael Cole said.
“He was reincarnated it’s not hard to understand,” Corey Graves said. Then they debated whether Bray still calls his finisher the Sister Abigail since he apparently got rid of her while Matt hit a Side Effect and Bray did his spider walk into a Sister Abigail.
Bray tagged in Matt Hardy and the hit an Elevated Twist Of Fate double team move to win the match as Sheamus took the pinfall. Now The Bar is free to head back to SmackDown.
Winners and NEW Raw Tag Team Champions: The Deleter Of Worlds
Jeff Hardy vs Jinder Mahal – US Title Match
This is a United States Championship match in Jeddah and Jeff Hardy got even more fireworks. Sunil Singh got a huge round of boos because Indians are heels in Saudi Arabia for real.
There were just around four hours left in the show as the bell started this match. Mahal started out by hammering Jeff Hardy around the ring but he returned with a dropkick that sent Jinder out of the ring. Hardy hit a dropkick through the ropes and successfully did the spot where he tightrope walks the barricade to hit a flying clothesline.
Sunil Singh distracted Hardy allowing Mahal to take control. Hardy came back and went for a Whisper In The Wind but totally missed even though Jinder sold it anyway by throwing himself back onto the canvas.
Hardy hit a mule kick and turned to throw his t-shirt at Sunil Singh on the outside but Jinder went for the Khallas but it was blocked. Then Hardy hit the Twist Of Fate and a Swanton Bomb for the win.
Winner and STILL US Champion: Jeff Hardy
The Bludgeon Brothers vs The Usos – SmackDown Tag Team Title Match
As Harper and Rowan walked to the ring Michael Cole talked about how furious they were about Naomi helping Jimmy win this week on SmackDown Live which is something they don’t have to worry about in Jeddah because the women weren’t allowed to make the trip.
Rowan started things out by dominating and that didn’t change when Harper was tagged in. 2B kept tagging in and out to keep things violent for Jey Uso.
Rowan locked on a head vice move as Michael Cole namedropped Sgt Slaughter and then he eventually tagged Harper. Jey moved out of the way causing Harper to fly over the top rope as Jey made it to Jimmy.
Jimmy hit dives on Harper and Rowan and the crowd was slowing coming back. They chanted “O” a few times when Jimmy yelled, “Uce!” and ht hit a hip attack in the corner.
Jimmy tagged in Jey and they both hit a kick to Harper’s head followed by a taking Rowan out as well. Jimmy hit a top rope splash for a two count as Rowan took out Jey on the outside. Then Rowan flattened Jimmy with a cross body block and they got back in to hit a double team splash followed by a double powerbomb (and not crucifix slam) for the win.
Winners and Still SmackDown Tag Team Champions: The Bludgeon Brothers via pinfall
Seth Rollins vs The Miz vs Finn Balor vs Samoa Joe – Intercontinental Title Ladder Match
The Miz was super over in Saudi Arabia and received a ton of fireworks during his entrance. He really is an A-Lister in Jeddah.
To nobody’s surprise, Finn Balor was not sporting the rainbow “Balor Club is for everyone” gear and he looked like old-school Fonzie Finn.
These four fought in the ring until the action spilled outside and concentrated on the first ladder brought into play. The ladder got brought into the ring and Seth Rollins was driven into it thanks to a drop toe hold from Samoa Joe.
Joe hit a chop and a headbutt to take Finn down but Joe picked him back up to drive him into the turnbuckle and drive a knee into his face. Finn came back but planting Joe on the ladder and hitting a double stomp. Then Finn started to climb but The Miz jumped in the ring and took him down with a boot to the face.
Rollins jumped in the ring and sent The Miz outside. He set up the ladder but Balor grabbed his leg and jerked him down when he started climbing. They both ended up on the same ladder until Joe and Miz pushed the two babyfaces down.
Joe looked at Miz and licked his lips. Then The Miz tried to back off and the shook hands until Joe turned it into a headbutt and set the ladder up in the corner but it fell so he just hit a bodyslam on Finn. Joe propped the ladder back up in the corner and launched Rollins into it.
Finn came back with a sling blade and a shotgun dropkick to the corner and Joe went bouncing off the ladder and it fell on top of him. Finn climbed up to join him and so did The Miz. Joe popped up and took the ladder to Miz sending him crashing to the floor. Then Samoa Joe sent both men down with a powerbomb.
Joe got another ladder from under the ring and brought it into the ring so The Miz hit a Skull Crushing Finale off the ladder which sent Joe rolling out of the ring. The Miz set up the ladder and started to climb with nobody in the ring until Rollins jumped up and they started fighting on the top of the ladder.
The Miz fought Seth off successfully but Finn took his place. Finn and The Miz exchanged punches on top of the ladder until they moved to the mat and The Miz hit a neckbreaker and turned around to rip Seth off the ladder and hit a DDT.
The crowd started chanting heavily for The Miz which woke them up. He picked up the ladder and whacked everyone with it. Miz sent Rollins flying off the apron with a ladder shot but Balor landed a kick and Miz fell on his own ladder. Then Finn climbed to the top rope and hit a Coup De Gras with Miz on the ladder.
Samoa Joe didn’t let Finn climb the ladder at all but Balor returned with an overhead kick to send Joe down. But as Balor climbed again Joe grabbed him again and tried for a Coquina Clutch but Balor turned it into a double chest stomp. Then Finn started climbing again until Joe took him down and hit a uranage slam. Joe started climbing again but Finn kicked him down and started climbing again.
Suddenly, Rollins jumped in out of nowhere and plucked the title off the hook to retain his title. That is why they call him Crossfit Jesus.
Winner and STILL Champion: Seth Rollins
Four new Saudi Arabian recruits were in the ring and each of them got introductions from Mike Rome and a couple of them got to cut promos. The crowd was very into this.Then the Davairi Brothers came out and got massive boos. Shawn Daivari still looks great by the way and he ate the heat up.
Ariya said the recruits were pathetic, nothing, a trainee, a wannabee, and not real athletes. He said real athletes come from the strongest nation in the world, Iran. Then Shawn started cutting a promo in Arabic and it really riled up the recruits and this was the hottest the crowd has been all night for a spot that didn’t involve John Cena.
One of the recruits knocked down Ariya and then everyone got a chance to try some new moves out on Shawn. Then the Daivari Brothers took off after being defeated by these new recruits. The crowd was super into this for obvious reasons.
Michael Cole said all four guys are headed to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando Florida.
AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura – WWE Championship Match
Shinsuke took control early on but AJ fought back onto to have Nakamura return fire and beckon him to “come on!” So AJ came at him and Nakamura got caught with a dropkick.
AJ laid in a kick to Nakamura’s back but Shinsuke lifted his leg to a running Styles and his shot landed. Nakamura tried for an Okada roll but AJ blocked it with the ropes so Shinsuke took out his legs with a kick. Then Nakamura hit a running knee and a knee drop on the apron before returning to the ring.
AJ didn’t let Nakamura pin him but Nakamura maintained control by landing a knee drop for the two count. Then Nakamura latched on a rear chinlock until AJ came back with a move to cause separation.
AJ mounted a comeback and landed a sliding forearm to a seated Shinsuke. He hit the fireman’s carry neckbreaker for a two count and got back to his feet and tried for a Styles Clash but Nakamura avoided it and landed a kick to the head while the crowd raised their arms and swayed back and worth.
Shinsuke planted AJ on his face and Nakamura prepared for the Kinshasa. Styles turned the Kinshasa into a pin which Nakamura kicked out of but he soon found himself in AJ’s Calf Crusher.
Shinsuke got to the ropes to break up the hold and landed a leg to the side of Styles’ head in return. AJ went for the Phenomenal Forearm but Nakamura grabbed him and placed him over the turnbuckle to drive his knee into the WWE Champion.
Then Shinsuke got AJ on the top rope but Styles slipped under him and send Nakamura crashing face-first into the top turnbuckle.
They traded forearms until AJ started using elbows and that seemed to do the trick until Nakamura came alive and AJ had to top him with a barrage of even more strikes. They quickly moved down to the canvas as Nakamura tried for an armbar but AJ fought out and hit a Pele Kick.
Then Shinsuke lifted AJ to the apron and almost hit a Phenomenal Forearm but he nearly hit the referee. As the ref was distracted, Nakamura landed another Chyna low-blow and rolled him up for a pin. 1-2- then AJ grabbed the bottom rope.
Nakamura went for a Kinshasa but AJ came back with a flying forearm. The action moved to the outside of the ring and they kept fighting as the referee kept counting. And then he called for a double count-out.
After the match was over, AJ hit a crossbody block on Nakamura sending him into the barricade. He hit Nakamura with a chair and didn’t look happy.
AJ put Nakamura back in the ring and Nakamura rolled outside to avoid any more assault so AJ hit a flying forearm over the top rope to the floor.
The Undertaker vs Rusev – Casket Match
The crowd in Saudi Arabia did not seem to celebrate Rusev Day very much as the booed Aiden English but they still chanted, “Rusev Day” pretty well so go figure.
The Undertaker had an amazing reception as expected. He greeted the casket fondly before stepping into his yard and the crowd was in awe as he brought the light up and fire erupted on the ramp behind him.
Rusev went out of the ring as Taker settled himself then he got back in and rolled out again saying, “I’m not ready yet.” But The Dead Man obviously was because he chased Rusev outside and started landing some shots.
When they got back in the ring, Rusev stomped The Undertaker in the corner but he soon no-sold it and came back with some shots in the corner of his own. Then Taker grabbed Rusev’s arm and hit a shoulder tackle before performing an old-school and then Taker stalked around the ring for a beat before tossing Rusev on top of the casket.
Rusev freaked out and rolled off. He backed up the ramp with Aiden English who tried to help him maintain his confidence. When Taker went outside, Rusev hit a few shots on him and drove Taker into the barricade but Taker soon returned fire and sent the Lion Of Bulgaria flying into the barricade and bouncing off the announce table.
The crowd started to chant, “Undertaker” as he hit his legendary leg drop across Rusev’s throat while he laid on the apron. They moved back to the ring and he signaled for the casket to be opened and he got him in but Aiden distracted Taker.
Rusev rolled out of the casket and Taker returned to the ring to eat a kick to the side of the head. Rusev stomped away at The Undertaker and then he drove some shoulders into his abdomen in the corner. At this point Rusev gave Undertaker way more of a fight than John Cena did, so does that mean Rusev is better than John Cena who just beat Triple H so by that idea is Rusev better than Triple H too?
Rusev caught Taker in the face with a spinning heel kick and hit an elbow drop or two before signaling for the Accolade which he locked on but he didn’t stretch him much at all.
Rusev called for the casket to be opened as Taker sat up. Then he went for a chokeslam but Rusev reversed it. They traded shots until The Undertaker finally hit the chokeslam. He tossed Rusev in the casket and then turned around to chokeslam Aiden English.
The Undertaker picked up Aiden English and hit a Tombstone. I wonder if the reason he hit Aiden with a Tombstone and not Rusev had to do with Aiden being so much lighter than Rusev.
Then The Undertaker rolled Aiden in the casket with Rusev and closed the lid on both of them. The Undertaker received plenty of fireworks during his victory celebration as well.
Winner: The Undertaker
Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns – Universal Title Cage Match
Guess what? Roman Reigns got a boatload of fireworks during his entrance and Paul Heyman received a great pop from the Saudi crowd as he introduced his client.
Brock started things off by giving Roman three German suplexes right from the get-go. The crowd was very into Roman Reigns and cheered him on as he hit a fourth suplex. Then he hit an F5. But Brock didn’t do anything except smile and stand over Roman.
He picked Roman up for another F5 but Roman got out of it and hit three quick Superman Punches. Then he geared up for a Spear but Brock grabbed him for an F5. Brock grabbed the cage and pushed Brock off as he started to climb.
Lesnar caught Reigns and pulled him down before trying to escape the cage himself. Reigns grabbed Brock’s legs as he climbed and turned it into a top rope powerbomb but Brock got right to his knees and climbed to his feet.
Samoa Joe watched from backstage on a monitor because he will be facing Reigns at Backlash. Reigns bounced Lesnar off the cage and hit a spear. Then he prepared himself for another spear which Roman hit. Then Reigns hit a third spear using the spot that was supposed to be the capper at Mania where he bounces off the ropes for speed. Reigns made the cover for a two count.
Reigns called for the door to be opened and he started to walk out as Heyman closed the cage door on his head. Brock his another F5 but it was only for a two-count.
Heyman tossed a chair into the open door as the referee yelled at him but there was little the official could do. Brock took off his gloves and grabbed the chair. But as he turned around Reigns hit another spear for a two count.
Roman smiled as he grabbed the chair and then he laid in a few shots to Brock’s back as he rolled around the canvas. Reigns cocked his fist and prepared for another Superman Punch which he nailed on the money.
Then Roman Reigns speared Brock Lesnar through the cage and Brock Lesnar landed first so he wins.
Winner and STILL Universal Champion: Brock Lesnar
The Greatest Royal Rumble Match
At least we got a little Bryan vs Dolph match to kick this thing off. Sin Cara was eliminated pretty quickly because Dolph and Bryan didn’t want him around.
Henry didn’t waste any time taking Curtis Axel out of the ring before Daniel and Dolph unsuccessfully tried to eliminate The World’s Strongest Man too. Then when Kanellis went to the ring, Henry was unamused so he clotheslined him right out of the match.
When Hiroki Sumi came to the ring he had a nice little standoff with Mark Henry. But in the end, it resulted in Henry tossing Sumi out of the ring only to be eliminated himself by Ziggler and Bryan.
Everyone was elated to see Hornswoggle and it’s hard to argue it’s not good having him back on WWE television. He immediately helped eliminate Dash Wilder and hit Kofi with a Samoan Drop (Cole called it a Swoggledrop) but as Hornswoggle climbed to the top for his Tadpole Splash, Dolph kicked him down but he hung on. Then he bit Dolph’s fingers and Nese kicked him down to take him out of the match.
Once Xavier Woods joined the match there was a little moment where Kofi was lifted over the apron onto Xavier’s back as Woods hung on and then the two fought Primo off to remain in the match. Woods climbed to the top rope with Kofi on his back and Kingston used Woods’ back as a platform to hit a splash on Bryan, Dolph, and Primo. Tony Nese tried to dance with them and they played along for a second before picking him up and tossing him out of the ring.
It turns out that Kurt Angle gets “you suck” chants even in Saudi Arabia. He got right ot work and eliminated Dallas and Primo before Dolph took him down but Kurt caught him and hit a belly-to-belly to send Ziggler to the floor.
Elias had a chance to play his guitar and cut a promo on his way to the ring. Nobody seemed to want to Walk With Elias. “Look at that, over 60,000 people came to see Elias,” he said as people started to pick up with his catchphrase. Then he told people to silence their cell phone and shut their mouths as he tried to play a song but instead jumped in the ring to eliminate Kofi, Xavier, and Konnor at the same time.
Daniel Bryan and Kurt Angle had a great spot where Daniel landed on his feet from a German suplex and came back with Yes Kicks until other people got involved like Elias who eliminated the Raw General Manager from the match.
Tucker Knight was a part of the Saudi Arabian WWE tryouts and so was Dan Matha. Knight eliminated Gulak right off the bat before Luke Gallows started to occupy his time in the match.
The lights went down and Bobby Roode got his entire entrance but he would soon sprint to the ring because he had a score to settle with Elias.
Mysterio received a huge pop when he came out and was wearing all green. He went for Luke Gallows straight out who he eliminated with some leg scissors and then set Bobby Roode up for a 6-1-9 but Fandango stopped him from pulling it off as he joined the fray.
Mojo took out Fandango right from the get-go and then he started taking it to Chad Gable while Rey Mysterio took a breather in the corner before he joined him to try and eliminate Chad but Gable rolled back under the ropes to stay in the match.
As Breeze was entering the match, Fandango was leaving. Mojo knocked him off the apron and Dango caught him. He placed his buddy back on the apron only to get shoved back off by Rawley as Daniel Bryan started laying Yes Kicks into Tucker Knight.
Big E started things out by throwing pancakes at Tucker Knight which he had in his singlet so you know they’re fresh. Tucker ate a Big Ending and then he was eliminated after a pretty good showing in the match.
Roode almost hit a spinebuster on Anderson but Karl countered and hit his own signature spinebuster instead… that was nice to see and I just wanted to make a mention of that spot. Then Rey Mysterio hit a 6-1-9 on Roode.
Roderick Strong was a nice surprise as he came in the match and hit a backbreaker on everyone and then he eliminated Rhyno. “Roderick Strong is going to win mark my words!” Corey Graves said.
Randy hit Apollo with an RKO off of a top rope move before tossing Karl Anderson, Mojo Rawley, and Apollo out of the ring. Randy Orton almost eliminated Daniel Bryan but he held on.
Babatunde was also a big surprise and he’s super huge. Daniel Bryan fought him as his chest glowed red with all the chops he’s taken during the match. Elias was taken to the floor but not eliminated. Baron Corbin made sure Elias ate the steel steps before getting in the ring and hitting Mysterio with a Deep 6. Then Baron eliminated Roode and Strong as Corey Graves changed his pick for the winner to The Lone Wolf.
As Titus ran to the ring he tripped and went flying under the ring in a massive botch that cracked the entire team up as Michael Cole declared that the greatest moment in Royal Rumble history.
Strowman pretty much cleaned house when he got in the match. Everyone in the match had to try and eliminate Braun Strowman. Rey hit a 6-1-9 on Strowman followed by an RKO but he stayed in. Then Baron Corbin eliminated Mysterio before Orton eliminated Corbin and Elias threw him out too.
The Great Khali received a thunderous ovation which should be expected to be honest. As he walked to the ring Michael Cole reminded us that Beth Pheonix once eliminated him from a Royal Rumble. Lashley sold a chop from Khali and so did Bryan and Strowman. Then Khali grabbed Bryan until Strowman hammered on him and then he and Lashley deposited him over the top rope quickly.
Owens started hitting cannonballs on everyone right the start but Daniel Bryan caught him with a kick and put him on the apron as Daniel Bryan officially broke the record of longest Royal Rumble entry time. Then KO hit a pop-up powerbomb. Kevin didn’t look happy to see Shane-O as he went to the ring for his first Royal Rumble match.
McMahon hit a flying elbow on Kevin and then he put some boots to Lashley in the corner before Owens hit a right hand and Shane came back with a DDT. Suddenly Shane and Daniel Bryan were in the ring together and they stood face-to-face to soak up the crowd’s cheers for a bit until they both turned to Kevin Owens and hit Yes and Money Kicks.
Shelton went right for Shane McMahon when he got in the ring but it didn’t last long before KO started to direct traffic as he ordered everyone to gang up on Braun Strowman.
Braun got beat down in the corner and Shane McMahon hit the Coast To Coast forcing Braun under the ropes but not eliminating him.
Then Chris Jericho came out as #50 and the place exploded as the camera caught a close shot of Kevin Owens and Michael Cold said it looked like he’s seen a ghost.
Kevin was ready for Chris and Jericho went running to the ring. They hit some hockey punches and Jericho nailed a Lionsault on Owens. Shelton ate a Codebreaker and was taken out of the match too. Then Y2J locked on the Walls Of Jericho on Kevin as he tapped out to no avail.
But Big Cass kicked Jericho in the head before Lashley picked up Big Cass for a vertical suplex but botched it badly and they tried to cover for it calling it a brainbuster.
Daniel Bryan hit Yes Kicks on Owens as he instructed Shane to get up. He hit Owens with a couple running dropkicks in the corner and then Shane tried for another Coast To Coast but Strowman jumped up launched Shane McMahon through a table at ringside.
Then Bruan eliminated Lashley, Jericho, and Owens. Daniel Bryan tried to take it to Braun but he didn’t sell anything. Then Braun picked Daniel up and tried to hit a powerslam but Bryan reversed out. He almost had Braun but Big Cass jumped in and quickly eliminated Daniel Bryan.
One hour sixteen minutes and five seconds is the new record and Daniel Bryan has it.
It came down to Braun Strowman and Big Cass in the end. Braun crotched Big Cass on the top rope and knocked him off to win the Greatest Royal Rumble Match.
