The WWE Greatest Royal Rumble: Was it Great or Just Ok? Part Two

The WWE did something unique this past Friday, becoming the first American promotion to hold a PPV Event in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with The Greatest Royal Rumble, Despite the controversy around holding a wrestling event in the conservative country where Homosexuality is illegal and women have minimal rights, WWE managed to put on a decent show. Here is my review of the WWE Greatest Royal Rumble part Two

Seth Rollins V Finn Balor V Samoa Joe V The Miz For the Interconetnital Championship

This was the third and biggest Barnstorm match of the night, for amazing skilled technical wrestlers competing in a ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship, defending champion Seth Rollins took on former champ The Miz alongside Samoa Joe and Finn Balor.

With a multitude of false finishes and some of the most daring moves since the cruiserweight match, Seth Rollins Conducted a Heist Akin to the steal of the century by jumping off the top rope onto the top of the ladder to swipe the belt from under Finn Balor’s Nose. In a matter of Seconds, the scene was stolen and the crowd were stunned.

AJ Styles V Shinsuke Nakamura For the WWE Championship

After a clinic of a match at Wrestlemania and the shocking heel turn of Shinsuke Nakamura, this was a heated and emotional charged match, the clean and technical style of the best wrestler in the world AJ Styles and the artistry and strong style charm of Shinsuke boiled over and caused the match to end in a double count-out.

The last Good match of the night ended leaving us wanting more until the next two matches came up…

The Undertaker V Rusev In a Casket Match

The first show ruining match was the terrible squash match of Undertaker V Rusev, What good was this? undertaker is a living legend and hall of fame bound, he shouldn’t be used to squash one of the most over AF characters, Rusev.

Brock Lesner V Roman Reigns For the Universal Championship

Unpopular opinion, Brock Lesner is Crap, He is as stiff as a post and cannot tell a story, not even a picture story and for him to win clean Against Roman Reigns, one of the smoothest operators in the business, is just bloody stupid, Brock Lesner doesn’t respect the business and shouldn’t even be  champion when he doesn’t defend the belt often.

The Greatist Royal Rumble Match

Oh God the last match of the night and one that lasted an hour and forty minutes, 50 men battled in an over the top rope battle royal for the title of winner of the greatest royal rumble, To save time lets focus on two people. Daniel Bryan and Brawn Stroman.

Daniel Bryan is the best, he’s the loveable babyface who can spin gold anytime in the ring, after having to retire for two years because of injury and only having his first match at WrestleMania, he lasted forty minutes in the ring. quite simply stunning and beautiful.

as for Brawn Stroman, the monster among men, he managed to eliminate 13 men and now holds the record for the most eliminations in a rumble, Brawn won the match and can add the winner of the greatest royal rumble to his impressive collection alongside the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships with his buddy Nicolas the 4th Grader.

A good PPV with only a few bad matches and a few controversies so overall the Greatist Royal Rumble was good but not great. Maybe it should have been called the WWE Saudi Arabia Royal Rumble?

and if you’ve read both artlces, then congratulations and what was your thoughts on the WWE Greatest Royal Rumble? This has been Jordan’s Thoughts on the 30th of April

 

The WWE Greatest Royal Rumble: Was it Great or Just Ok? Part one

The WWE did something unique this past Friday, becoming the first American promotion to hold a PPV Event in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with The Greatest Royal Rumble, Despite the controversy around holding a wrestling event in the conservative country where Homosexuality is illegal and women have minimal rights, WWE managed to put on a decent show. Here is my review of the WWE Greatest Royal Rumble part one

Triple H V John Cena 

after the standard national anthem stuff and the promo package, the curtain-jerking match was a classic between the 16x time WWE champion John Cena and the Creator of the hottest wrestling brand NXT Triple H. Nothing really more to say apart from Big Match John scoring a pinfall victory and cutting a promo thanking the crowd.

Cedric Alexander V Kalisto for the Cruiserweight Championship 

The first barnstorm match of the night and a classic singles match featuring WWE 205 Live Stars Cedric Alexader and Kalisto, I Absolutely loved this match from start to finish, the agility and unique blend of strong style and Lucha Libre came together,

highlight include the series of forearms and kicks from the defending champ Cedric, through to some of the springboard offence from the Lucha Dragon Kalisto, but in the end, the champion continued his winning streak taking the match to a good 10 Minute bout of good sportsmanship

Bray Wyatt and WOKEN Matt Hardy V Sheamus and Cesaro for the RAW Tag Team Championship

Now the crowd had warmed up with two singles matches, the time came for the first tag match of the evening, with the unique team of the WOKEN one Matt Hardy and the Eater of worlds Bray Wyatt vs The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro) for the RAW Tag Team Championships.

Two Strange bedfellow teams came together to produce a second barnstorm match, The two teams took the action to the centre of the squared circle with tag team moves aplenty, with The bar Taking a sister Abigale into a twist of Fate and thus beginning the expedition of gold for the team now referred to as “the deleter of worlds”

Jeff Hardy V Jinder Mahal for the United States championship 

Four Matches in and it was the turn of the First Interbrand match of the night With Jeff Hardy (Smackdown) V Jinder Mahal (RAW) for the United States Championship, Having come off a shoulder injury to claim the belt on RAW, Jeff hardy prooved he can still go the distance in a solid but short 6 minute match with the underrated Jinder Mahal who has been a beast since coming back from being released.

The Bludgeon Brothers V The Usos for the Smackdown Tag Team Championships 

After four good matches, there had to be a crap match and this was it, the bludgeon brothers squashed the Usos in under 5 minutes to keep the Smackdown Tag Team Championships, the crowd didn’t care and neither did I
