History was made on April 30 (Friday) when 50 superstars competed in the Greatest Royal Rumble match. Saudi Arabia hosted the biggest Royal Rumble match of all-time in the history of the company.

Furthermore, Braun Strowman created a history of his own by creating a massacre inside the ring like he always does in a match.

When the dust cleared, the last two men standing inside the ring turned out to be Big Cass and Braun Strowman.

Needless to say, the latter one rampaged his way to victory by toppling the recently returning superstar over the top rope. He created history in the process of this win.

But, there’s one more accolade added to his name, after the match.

For now, Strowman is the new record holder for eliminating the most number of superstars in a single Royal Rumble match.

During the prestigious battle royal in Saudi Arabia, he eliminated a record 13 superstar, alone. No other man in the WWE has created a ruckus like him, previously.

En route to this utter domination, the behemoth name eliminated several former champions in the WWE like Bobby Lashley, Big E, Kevin Owens, Shane McMahon and his final elimination, Big Cass and more.

McMahon was sent through a table from the ring in an incredible stunt.

The previous record of the most eliminations in a single match remained under the name of Roman Reigns, till date.

At the 2014 edition of Royal Rumble PPV event, he sent 12 superstars flying over the top rope. A 13-year record was broken by virtue of this.

Kane held a mammoth record for eleven-men elimination in 2001 Royal Rumble event.

Once Reigns broke that, it came down to him and Strowman who had a tug of war of eliminations in recently bygone Rumble events.

In 2016, Strowman and Reigns tied with six eliminations, each.

Last year, Strowman threw seven names from the ring where this year, he was not part of the Royal Rumble match. He competed in the WWE Universal Championship match alongside Brock Lesnar and Kane.

Following this Greatest Royal Rumble win, Vince McMahon himself present him with a title and a huge trophy. He is quite favorable to the Chairman of the board. 

Now that he created history, more accolades are likely to be added to his name in the future.
