Greatest Royal Rumble - canon?

So, this is a canon show or just a house show like Beast in the East?
Couldn't find anything online, so what better place to ask.

Reigns been mentioning it in his promos, so?

Re: Greatest Royal Rumble - canon?

Depends on results and how watched it is in the US, if everyone retains and nobody watches it it's non-canon, if a title changes hands or if it sets social media on fire they can't ignore it.

If they weren't putting it on the network I'd say non.

But as they are, it certainly seems that it should be taken as canon.

Re: Greatest Royal Rumble - canon?

I mean, I dunno, the card seems more stacked than Wrestlemania to me. If it turns out even half well (and it will be sold out at the prices posted and due to Saudi Arabia's "Modernization" partnership with WWE for the next 10 year), it'll be pretty hard to ignore.

It's canon or they wouldn't be acknowledging it.

It's the real WrestleMania. Roman wins the title without being booed in U.S.

Cena gets a big time match unlike that trash vs Undertaker.

Re: Greatest Royal Rumble - canon?

I say it is canon. It will be on the network and they have been promoting it on the show and are also incorporating it into the show’s storylines (like with Reigns mentioning it on RAW).

Re: Greatest Royal Rumble - canon?

Reigns likely wins the title there because the WWE is assuming they'll cheer for him when he wins. It's why he lost at Mania and re-signed Lesnar

Re: Greatest Royal Rumble - canon?

It's kind of a weird case of both.

They're having a championship rematch with Reigns vs. Lesnar that they announced on TV. They had #1 contender's match on both Raw and Smackdown to set up matches for the show. So in that sense it's absolutely canon.

But they're also having super random matches that makes it seem like it exists in it's own world. The 50 Man Rumble match with seemingly nothing on the line. A random John Cena vs. Triple H match. A SUPER random casket match The Undertaker and Chris Jericho.

So one hand it is a canon, storyline driven event and on the other hand it exists in it's own other world.

It's canon unless Reigns gets booed.
