I almost forgot it was on. I found it funny that it took most outlets the past couple of days to question the WWE being in Saudi Arabia see as they wouldn't be allowed to have women's matches. I think more people careif "The Big Dog" leaves town with the title.

The Rumble is the only match I actually give a **** about. Maybe the ladder match too but probably not.

Cedric Alexander beats Kalisto. Entertaining but man the cruiserweights don't have a lot of personality.

I'm kinda interested in the tag team title. Most of the matches do seem like filler for the foreign crowd that has nothing really to do with storylines.

Hardy and Wyatt new tag champs beating The Bar. Matt Hardy obviously used Trump's tanning salon. Maybe it was the contrast with him and Shaemus that made him look so orange.

The crowd seemed like they were thinking "This is racist!" during Jinder Mahal's entrance.

Jeff Hardy beats Mahal to retain the title. I don't see a title actually changing hands here. Jinder is one hell of a team player.

Seth Rollins retains the IC Title in the four way ladder match. Wish match. Rollins steals match by jumping on ladder from the ropes and beating Balor to the belt.

Did anyone really think Rusev would win? I didn't think so. Taker in the casket match.

If they did a woman’s match anyway I’d respect them hardcore.

I can't give too much of a **** about this show.  Just Republican McMahon accepting blood money from a terrorist state while diminishing the work done with the women's division.  I hope the ladies are enjoying the weekend off.

Braun Strowman wins The Greatest Royal Rumble by eliminating Big Cass. Daniel Bryan sets record for longest run in the Rumble. Nice spots throughout.

LOL and Braun even broke Romans elimination record. Granted it was in a non-standard rumble match, but those kinds of things are conscious creative decisions so lol.

The matches were solid but not spectacular. Honestly the WWE should have just done a Raw and Smackdown there. There WWE Network makes ppvs like this palatable.

WWE has selective memory when it comes to acknowledging these kinds of things.

If they did a womans match anyway Id respect them hardcore.

WWE did get a jab in after all. Reports are coming out that while the event was being shown live on Saudi state TV outlets, WWE aired a promo video featuring female wrestlers. This made the Saudis cut off their broadcasts and "apologize" for showing women on TV.

Ironically enough, a reporter who was there for a pro wrestling website said during ad, the live crowd popped for Sasha Banks and popped even bigger for Charlotte.

Best thing they could have done woulda been to have to gals wearing burkas in a mud (or oil?) wrestling contest with one of them being unmasked after a flying crucifix.
