Braun Strowman, with an unaccepted record of 13 eliminations, won a first-ever Greatest Royal Rumble Match. And while Strowman’s stature as WWE’s biggest rising star will add prestige to what it means to win this event, correct follow-up will only continue to lift what seems to be an gigantic ceiling.
In what could be WWE’s biggest entertain ever, between a high series of general touring, WrestleMania 34 and what should be a poignant payday from a Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, WWE also showcased a biggest Royal Rumble ever.
The Greatest Royal Rumble featured a jam-packed margin of 50 WWE Superstars. Though a stream epoch is abundant with WWE’s deepest register in history—from cruiserweights to an whole developmental domain in NXT and dual apart brands of WWE Superstars on Raw and SmackDown Live—WWE emptied a sideboard of mostly name-brand talent to concede a featured captivate to live adult to a lofty namesake.
Mark Henry, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle Shane McMahon, a Great Khali and Chris Jericho were usually some of a featured luminaries who took partial in a marathon 50-man match, which lasted over 80 minutes.
The Greatest Royal Rumble headlined a label that was constructed like a WrestleMania but requisitioned like a residence show. It’ll be engaging to see either winning a eventuality carries any sobriety outward of hoisting a trophy, a belt and relocating on identical to a minimal stakes in a Andre a Giant Memorial Battle Royal and a WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal.
Hollow buzzwords like “bragging rights” were liberally thrown around via a Greatest Royal Rumble, yet given a pushing of a event—and a fact that it is being factored into a origin of a Royal Rumble authorization as against to being a small exhibition—WWE has inducement to build on what should be a suggestive victory. If not, this new judgment will fast be rendered no some-more critical than WrestleMania’s unheralded Andre a Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
Prior winners of Battle Royals during WrestleMania were incompetent to build on these wins as singles stars.Mojo Rawley was used sparingly as a singles star following his ESPN-baiting win in 2017. Baron Corbin came tighten before crashing and blazing as usually the third Money in a Bank leader to fail to win a universe championship in his cash-in opportunity. Few even remember The Big Show won in 2015. And Cesaro drowned underneath a star energy of Paul Heyman after winning a initial Andre a Giant Memorial Battle Royal, yet he has given rebounded rather as a tip tab group performer.
This year’s winners, Matt Hardy and Naomi, seemed to go behind to business, as usual, following their victories progressing this month during WrestleMania 34.
