Greatest Royal Rumble will run for 5 hours!


Just because a seven-hour WrestleMania wasn’t enough two weeks ago…WWE will have a five-hour Greatest Royal Rumble next Friday!

The WWE Network schedule was updated with the running time for the show and it’s listed as starting at Noon EST and running till 5PM EST. There will also be a one-hour Kickoff show before which starts at 11AM EST. The start time will be a bit “weird” for those living in the United States but it’s a welcome change for those on the other side of the world, especially those in Europe and the Middle East. The show starts at 7PM local time.

There seems to be no more tickets available for the show which will be held at The King Abdullah Sports City Stadium. All five sections which were available for purchase now have a “will be available later” notice. If WWE manages to fill the 60,000+ seater stadium it will be a big achievement and a good start to the 10-year relationship between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Greatest Royal Rumble will air on the WWE Network and on traditional pay-per-view on select providers around the world.
