Following today’s WWE Greatest Royal Rumble from the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, we have a number of notables news items from the event.
Daniel Bryan, who was entry number one in the Greatest Royal Rumble Match, now holds the record for most time spent in a single Royal Rumble at 1:16. The previous record was held by Rey Mysterio in 2006 at 1:02:12, however Mysterio was the winner whereas Bryan only made it to the final three.
Meanwhile, Mike Kanellis had a bad Rumble, being eliminated almost instantly after he slid into the ring. It’s being teased that Kanellis may have broken Santino Marella’s previous record for shortest time at 1.9 seconds, but that has yet to be confirmed.
As it was reported earlier, Sami Zayn did not appear in the Greatest Royal Rumble despite saying he would this past Monday on RAW. Sami is of Syrian descent, a country that Saudi Arabia ceased contact with in 2012. It should also be noted that despite Zayn stating he was in the match on television, he was never in any advertising for the event.
While he was advertised to be in the match, Big Show did not compete. Currently, it’s not known why ‘The World’s Largest Athlete’ was absent from the show.
Braun Strowman, the winner of the GRR, now holds the record for most eliminations at thirteen. Previously, Roman Reigns held the record with twelve in the 2014 Royal Rumble.
Finally, the single most talked about moment from the Greatest Royal Rumble occurred when Titus O’Neil made his way to the ring. The figurehead of Titus Worldwide would stumble and his momentum ended up sending him on a slide under the ring, which you can see below:
