The inclusion of Braun Strowman may be a potential spoiler that he will not win the Raw Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 34 this Sunday, given that also announced for the Greatest Royal Rumble event is Sheamus and Cesaro vs. the Hardy Boyz for the titles. It could also just be WWE throwing a ‘red herring’ out there though, so don’t read too much into it.
The WrestleMania 34 roles that Big Show, Bray Wyatt and Kane will play have not yet been announced, but this does indicate we will be seeing Wyatt return to our screens sooner rather than later, after he was thrown into the ‘Lake of Reincarnation’ in the Ultimate Deletion a couple of weeks ago.
Daniel Bryan however, announced his clearance for in-ring return two Tuesdays ago, and at the ‘Show of Shows’ will be involved in a tag team match where he is scheduled to be teaming with fellow SmackDown Live authority figure Shane McMahon, to take on the team of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
The Greatest Royal Rumble event will take place on Friday, April 27, 2018 at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and will stream live on the WWE Network.
Here is the confirmed card for the event so far:
50-man Royal Rumble match
Big Show, Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, Kane and more TBA.
Raw Tag Team Championships
Sheamus and Cesaro vs. The Hardy Boyz.
Intercontinental Championship – Fatal Four Way Ladder Match

John Cena vs. Triple H.
There will also be matches for all other male championships, and other names confirmed for the show include Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, the New Day, Shinsuke Nakamura and more.
