WWE News: WWE Championship Match Set for Greatest Royal Rumble Event

Arindam Paul / 20 April 2018

The final championship match from the main roster is hereby confirmed by the WWE at Greatest Royal Rumble.

The WWE, at this moment, confirms the final championship match from the main roster at Greatest Royal Rumble.

The prime title present in all of sports entertainment history will be defended on the night of April 27th. It is going to be yet another Wrestlemania rematch from the match card of the event.

At the biggest stage of them all, we had witnessed the dream match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura. These two gave us an entertaining match, but the finish came as a complete shocker, as the latter one turned into a heel, right after. By hitting a low blow to the champion, he turned into a villain on the roster.

This negative turn of his character was solidified by the Japanese superstar in the following weeks. He continued to deliver surprise attacks to the champion, out of nowhere. Numerous low blows were delivered to AJ Styles last week as well as this week that heated up this rivalry between two of the veteran superstars in the pro-wrestling universe.

So, it was just a matter of time that rematch should be made official between these two performers. As per the announcement of WWE.com, AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura will compete in the WWE Championship match at Greatest Royal Rumble event. Here’s the official announcement,

“At the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia, WWE Champion AJ Styles will defend his title against Shinsuke Nakamura in a WrestleMania rematch, but the circumstances surrounding the contest will be very different than their epic showdown at The Showcase of the Immortals. Who will emerge victorious at the Greatest Royal Rumble event? Find out Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m. AST.”

The feud has the least intention to get over, all of a sudden. With the amount of bad blood building between these two superstars, they are expected to compete in numerous matches, going forward. In particular, this match on April 27th has not been given in any special stipulations.

Going forward, they have already been announced to form a triple threat championship match at the Extreme Rules PPV. So, there are some chances that the title might change hands at the upcoming WWE Network special event from Saudi Arabia.

In that case, the Phenomenal One will have to seek his title from the heel turned superstar in the upcoming months.
