HUGE Addition to WWE Greatest Royal Rumble Championship Match?

HUGE Addition to WWE Greatest Royal Rumble Championship Match?

It’s been a weird few days surrounding the upcoming WWE Greatest Royal Rumble show, with a few seemingly spontaneous changes being made to the card, most notably Rusev being taken out, and then placed back into, a casket match against The Undertaker.

PWInsider is now reporting another possible alteration, involving Bobby Lashley potentially being added to a fatal four-way ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship, to make it a five-way.

Initially, and currently, the match scheduled is between current and defending WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins, The Miz, Samoa Joe, and Finn Bálor.

Apparently, local advertising in the Middle East is citing Lashley as being a part of the Intercontinental title match. There is a possibility that this is a mistake or that WWE has changed plans and Lashley will in fact be taking part in the match.

The ‘Dominator’ isn’t yet scheduled for a match at Greatest Royal Rumble, but has been considered an early favorite to win the 50-man Royal Rumble match itself. He is currently 9/1 to win via SkyBet, which makes him the fourth favorite, behind Baron Corbin, Daniel Bryan, and Braun Strowman as the outright favorite at 7/4. (Odds are correct at time of writing but are likely to fluctuate.)

Lashley made his WWE return, after over ten years away from the company, on the Raw after WrestleMania 34, interrupting and attacking Elias.

WWE Greatest Royal Rumble Kickoff Show will air on the WWE Network, live at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT/5 p.m. GMT, with the main show starting two hours later. It will also be available via other pay-per-view services such as Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.
