Jerry “The King” Lawler announced on his latest episode of the Dinner With The King podcast that he will be travelling to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia along with fellow WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross to provide commentary for The Greatest Royal Rumble event.
The show will be taking place on April 27 from the King Abdullah Sports City stadium, a 60,000-seater that WWE hopes to fill up. The show will be broadcast live on the WWE Network and today, WWE’s UK broadcast partner Sky also announced that they would be airing the show on their pay-per-view platform Sky Sports Box Office. The show will air live in Saudi Arabia as well.
Sky lists the historic event as starting at 5PM GMT, which would make that Noon EST on Friday.
This will be the first of many special events that WWE will be holding in Saudi Arabia over a period of 10 years, a multi-million dollar deal that WWE signed earlier this month with the Kingdom.
