According to the Network schedule, the Greatest Royal Rumble is going to be 5 hours (5pm - 10pm), not including the hour pre-show at 4pm. Does anyone know if there's a match on the pre-show? I actually won't be back until around 7 tomorrow, so I'll be watching it a few hours behind. Thank god the Network allows you to watch things from the beginning that are currently showing.

I literally had to work out how it was possible for seven title matches on the show, with the lack of Women, but I assume one will be the Cruiserweight Championship? There has been next to no build up for the matches / feuds, so I assume VTs will be light, and it might be pretty pacey, despite the running time. I genuinely don't even know what all the matches are, but I'm still excited. I'll be ordering Domino's in, which I never do for the typical 1 am-start PPV.

Image of the working set for tomorrow with Ortons entrance, may also contain a spoiler on his entrance number though. However the number could be entirely random.



Also, Xmas party comment sums this up quite nicely :lol:

I wish it wasn't another 6 hour marathon, but I'm still rather looking forward to the Rumble. Like the UK shows, it's nice to watch it in the evening with a few beers rather than with a can of Monster at 4am.

I think the winner is getting an Andre style trophy.

I'm off out for a meal then seeing Infinity War so I'll miss most of the PPV. Will probably just whatever the good matches are on Saturday night after work.

The amount of empty floor space really is odd.

Looks like it’s going to be a pyro heavy night.

Lighting and sound isn’t quite right, but then I suppose that’s to be expected. Microphones are picking up every spot in the ring let alone those listening through headphones.

Cena's obvious calling of spots must be a rib at this point. It's beyond me that he hasn't learned how to do it properly after so many years.

Haha at the COUCHES at ringside under the hard camera.

Actually, they’re on the opposite side as well!
