WWE Greatest Royal Rumble 2018: Roman Reigns fails again, Lesner is still Universal Champion

WWE Greatest Royal Rumble 2018: Roman Reigns fails again, Lesner is still Universal Champion
Written by Abhishek Lohia
Hate him or love him, Roman Reigns does what is asked of him time and again, and it was no different at Jeddah as well. Reigns, going in as the underdog against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, consumed four German Suplexes as soon as the bell rang; he endured two F5s before mounting any kind of offence, but he countered with four superman punches and four spears for a couple of near counts. He power bombed Lesnar and could have walked out of the open gate to be the new champion had Paul Heyman not interfered by closing the gate on Reigns. Lesnar’s invincible persona was scaled down when Reigns hit shot after shot with the chair on Lesnar. He was then driven through the cage off a spear, but by Lesnar being out of the cage first, the referee awarded the match to Lesnar.

Braun Strowman stood last and claimed the first ever 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble eliminating Big Cass last. He walked away with a custom-made WWE title and a huge trophy. Daniel Bryan put in the best performance setting the record for the longest time in any single Royal Rumble of one hour, 15 minutes and six seconds after starting of the Rumble at the number one position. He outlasted 47 other participants and was the penultimate superstar to be eliminated.
