Saudi Arabia is preparing to host perhaps its most brash and brutal sporting event of 2018, The Greatest Royal Rumble.
The WWE circus comes to town on April 27, with thousands expected to descend on the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah to see their wrestling heroes.
The event will see John Cena and Triple H, the Undertaker and Chris Jericho, pit their wrestling wits against each other, while Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are set to do battle in an iron cage fight for the WWE Universal Championship.
The night will also include a bout for the WWE Intercontinental Championship that brings together Seth Rollins, The Miz, Samoa Joe, and Finn Balor.
The General Sports Authority announced that tickets for the Greatest Royal Rumble can now be purchased online and that prices start at SR10. This event is part of a 10-year strategic multi platform partnership in support of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s social and economic reform programme.
