The planned 'Greatest Royal Rumble' event in Saudi Arabia next month is to become WWE's "major priority" following WrestleMania, according to PWInsider.
The company heads to Jeddah, one of the country's largest cities, on April 27, when it will put on its first-ever 50-man Royal Rumble. A whole host of stars are reportedly set to feature, including Triple H, John Cena and Roman Reigns.
Writing today, Mike Johnson has claimed that WWE heads have also lined up several additional "surprises" for the show. One possibility, so it suggested, is an appearance in some capacity from The Undertaker, who has only been in front of the cameras once since his supposed retirement last year.
All of this, Johnson reports, is in aid of a 10-year pact Vince McMahon and co have agreed with Vision 2030, a Saudi government scheme aimed at diversifying the national economy. For its part, WWE is expected to receive what is described as "quite a nice payday".
There are now also suggestions that the event, contrary to some of the initial reports, could be broadcast on the WWE Network, although there is no word yet on whether it will go out live.
