Greatest Royal Rumble was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event and WWE Network event promoted by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brands. The event was held on April 27, 2018 at the King Abdullah Sports City's King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The event was scheduled for 7:00 p.m. local time and aired live in the United States at noon Eastern time, with a pre-show starting at 11 a.m. At the event, all men's main roster championships were defended, in addition to a 50-man Royal Rumble match. There was controversy about the exclusion of female wrestlers in the event due to the limited rights of women in Saudi Arabia.
Braun Strowman won the titular Royal Rumble match in the main event. In the penultimate match, Brock Lesnar retained the WWE Universal Championship in a steel cage match against Roman Reigns. On the undercard, The Undertaker defeated Rusev in a casket match, and the WWE Championship match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura resulted in a double countout.
