Everyone in Royal Rumble Today, Opening Match, Title Changes
Friday, April 27, 2018
The Greatest Royal Rumble pay-per-view is just minutes away from taking place, which means that it is just a matter of time before fans witness the biggest Royal Rumble match in WWE history. Only about half of participants for the match have been confirmed thus far, leaving about 25 spots open at the moment. While there will be some surprises saved for the show, Cageside Seats reports that nearly everybody on the main roster is expected to be involved in the match. If a WWE Superstars competes earlier on the show, it does not mean that they won't be in the Royal Rumble match as most of the roster members will be working double duty during today's show.
With the card for today's Greatest Royal Rumble event being as stacked as it is, it is difficult to decided which match should start the show. It could be any of the seven title matches, or the Casket Match between The Undertaker and Rusev, or even perhaps the Royal Rumble match itself. However, WWE has just uploaded a new video onto their YouTube channel informing fans that the singles match between John Cena and Triple H will be kicking off tonight's event. John Cena and Triple H will be reigniting a rivalry which has been dead for about a decade or so. Be sure to tune into the Greatest Royal Rumble event at exactly 12pm ET to catch this match between Cena and Triple H.
Seven different championships will be defended at The Greatest Royal Rumble tonight, and it sounds like WWE is planning on having tonight's event in Saudi Arabia be a memorable one as the company does plan on having some titles change hands. Cageside Seats reports that as much as 3-4 title switches are expected to take place during today's show. Fans are guaranteed new champions with Bray Wyatt & Matt Hardy taking on The Bar for the currently vacant Raw Tag Team Championships. Other than that, the Cruiserweight Championship, WWE Championship, United States Championship, Smackdown Tag Team Championships, Intercontinental Championship, and Universal Championship will all be defended during the event.
