New Championship match announced for Greatest Royal Rumble, updated match card

Greatest Royal Rumble

The main event of this week’s episode of SmackDown Live was supposed to be a tag team match between AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan vs The Rusev Day.

However, the bout ended in a disqualification after the recently turned heel Shinsuke Nakamura attacked Styles from behind while Bryan was attacked by a returning Big Cass.

This was the third time Nakamura attacked the WWE Champion in a span of weeks and after the show went off air, the company announced that these two will once again face each other at the Greatest Royal Rumble.

After the announcement, here is the updated match card for the show:

  • Arnold Jackson

    Because there is money to be made there. It’s a business. I agree with your sentiment though.

  • wwemrpeeps85

    Why would they perform somewhere that the females can’t wrestle? Very sexiest

  • Yespage

    Yeah, I loved that title run when he held back a lot of good talent. His matches were awesome. Get butt kicked -> pedigree, retain title.

    And that last WM, awesome card, awful match bookings.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Keep telling yourself that I am sure someday you will believe it. He gets a big pop because people love what he done for the business.

  • TripleHInTheRingWithTheShovel

    That’s only because WWE pushes him like he still matters. Truth is the only reason he has ever been over is because who he was surrounded by. When he is on his own, he hasn’t mattered.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    He will also have one of the biggest pop just to piss you haters off.

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    Good grief! I appreciate this huge card. It’s going to be a long show. I wonder if rumble entrants will still come out every 90 seconds, or if they will shorten it to 60 seconds…?

  • TripleHInTheRingWithTheShovel

    …and just like every other match he has wrestled since he became a part time performer, Triple H will have the longest match on the card, regardless of build or importance.
