The port city of Jeddah will host the WWE Greatest Royal Rumble. The Greatest Royal Rumble will be held at the King Abdullah Sports City on Friday, April 27.

As part of this historic event, fans will see WWE Superstars John Cena, Triple H, Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Shinsuke Nakamura, among others.

“The Greatest Royal Rumble will be a spectacle of historic proportions,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO. “Our partnership with the Saudi General Sports Authority reflects a long-term commitment to present WWE’s world-class entertainment to a global audience on a grander scale than ever before.”

Upon its launch in 2017, the Saudi General Sports Authority has created volunteer opportunities and encouraged social participation through sports activities. It serves as a catalyst for development of the sports sector, including sports education, developing sports medicine, and working with the appropriate agencies to combat doping in athletics. The General Authority for Sports aims to promote economic development by tapping into the opportunities in the sports industry.
