Ep. 11: WWE Greatest Royal Rumble review

Published

on

WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble (eh….) emanated from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, taking place in the hulking King Abdullah Sports City.

But was it anywhere WWE’s “greatest” show? Joe and Tim give their review in a special Monday episode, and consider whether it was just the Greatest House Show.

🤼BRAAAAAAUUUUUUUUNN! Braun Strowman won the actual 50-man battle royal, eliminating Big Cass to earn a trophy, a green championship belt … and possibly a future opportunity at the WWE Universal Championship.

🤼The Universal and WWE title matches were enjoyable but had schmozz endings designed to continue storylines.

🤼The ladder match might’ve stolen the show!

🤼 Worldwide! Titus O’Neill entered the history books for a much, much different reason, tripping and falling nearly beneath the ring during his Royal Rumble entrance.
