WWE continues to pull out all of the stops for its Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on April 27.
Angle competed in a tag team match with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34, which was his third bout since returning to WWE. Jericho, meanwhile, hasn't stepped inside a WWE ring since losing a Triple Threat match on SmackDown Live last July.
WWE has confirmed the Raw portion for the Greatest Royal Rumble, with the SmackDown Live title matches yet to be announced.
Here's what's on the card so far:
- Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage match for the WWE Universal Championship
- The Miz vs. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe in a ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
- John Cena vs. Triple H
- The 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble match
- The Bar vs. The Revival/Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt for the Raw Tag Team Championships
Those five matches alone would be enough for a major pay-per-view such as Royal Rumble or SummerSlam, and that's before including the likes of AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode and Jinder Mahal. Outside of WrestleMania 34, there's unlikely to be a more star-studded WWE event in 2018.
No match may be more anticipated than Brock Lesnar's universal title defense against Roman Reigns—if only to see whether it provides any clarity on The Beast Incarnate's status with the company.
WWE announced Monday that Lesnar had re-signed, but the company didn't provide any specifics regarding the length of his new contract. Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter reported he is only signed for one match, which is seemingly his date with Reigns in Saudi Arabia.
If Lesnar lost the universal title, it could signal his indefinite hiatus from professional wrestling as he focuses on a return to UFC.
