WWE superstars Daniel Bryan, Kane, Big Show, Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt are the first of 50 to officially enter the Greatest Royal Rumble match, which will take place in Saudi Arabia later this month.

Tickets for the ground-breaking show at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah on Friday April 27 will be available on April 13.

The Greatest Royal Rumble will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East with regional broadcast information forthcoming.

In addition to the first-ever 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match, the event will feature John Cena vs Triple H as well as seven championship matches, including a Raw Tag Team Championship Match - The Hardy Boyz vs Sheamus and Cesaro - and an Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match - Seth Rollins vs Finn Bálor vs The Miz vs Samoa Joe.

A Ladder Match is when a championship title belt is suspended above the ring, and the first superstar to climb to the top of a ladder and retrieve the title is the winner.

Turki Al Sheikh, chairman, General Sports Authority of Saudi Arabia, said the inaugural Greatest Royal Rumble will deliver "live family-friendly entertainment to fans across the Middle East".

It is the first event as part of a long-term partnership between Saudi Arabia and WWE, which is headquartered in Stamford, with offices in New York, Los Angeles, London, Mexico City, Mumbai, Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai, Munich and Tokyo.
