WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble has left plenty of questions after the match results. The event, which took place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, featured a 50-man Royal Rumble and several title matches. The majority of the matches ended with superstars retaining their titles. We don’t often see a lot of titles change hands but the results have left lots of questions for the upcoming episodes of WWE SmackDown, Raw and the next PPV. Here are eight questions after WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble:
What’s Next For Braun Strowman?
Braun Strowman won the 50-man Royal Rumble but it is unclear what he is getting out of this victory. The winner of the Royal Rumble usually gets a title opportunity at WrestleMania but that event recently took place. Strowman has done it all recently, winning the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships with a kid he picked from the crowd and now the biggest Royal Rumble in history. Will he be the next to challenge Brock Lesnar?
Will Roman Reigns Remain In The WWE Universal Championship Race?
Roman Reigns has now lost to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 and the Greatest Royal Rumble. The result at the latest event was controversial but it left questions for Roman Reigns, who doesn’t have a good record against the WWE Universal Champion. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe has been confirmed for WWE Backlash but that appears to be a one time thing since they’re now on different rosters.
Which Tag Team Will Challenge The Bludgeon Brothers Next?
The Bludgeon Brothers are still the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions after defeating The Usos at the Greatest Royal Rumble. The Bludgeon Brothers have looked very strong against the SmackDown tag team division, easily winning their match against The New Day and The Usos at WrestleMania 34. The superstar shakeup has brought new superstars to the SmackDown roster, including Cesaro and Sheamus, so maybe we’ll see different challengers in the next few months.
Will There Be a Feud Between Randy Orton and Jeff Hardy?
Jeff Hardy brought back the WWE United States Championship during the superstar shakeup. His return to SmackDown came when he interrupted Orton’s entrance to compete in the match. Orton recently did the same, so a feud now appears to be closer. It also makes sense since Randy Orton recently held the WWE United States Championship.
Who Will Challenge For The WWE Intercontinental Championship?
Seth Rollins won the WWE Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 34 and then successfully defended the title at the Greatest Royal Rumble. In the matches, he has defeated The Miz, Finn Balor and Samoa Joe. The Miz and Samoa Joe were moved to the SmackDown roster, so that leaves Balor as the only possible challenger. The superstar shakeup did bring some superstars to the WWE Raw roster, so we could also see a new challenger.
What’s Next For Rusev Day?
Rusev and Aiden English have become fan favorites in just a few months. The whole Rusev Day thing has been fun to watch but the results have not gone their way. Rusev and English have not won the tag titles. Rusev also fell short in his WrestleMania 34 match for the WWE United States Championship. It will be interesting to see what happens with this team in the next few months as a lot of fans are waiting for some victories and maybe some tag team gold.
What’s Asuka Going To Do Now?
Asuka has now lost her last two matches after bringing an undefeated streak to the main roster. The loss at WrestleMania 34 was against the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte but the most surprising came against recent NXT call-ups Peyton Royce and Billie Kay. The llconics have had a huge impact since debuting on the main roster, attacking Charlotte, who then lost her title to Carmella, and now handing another loss to Asuka. It will be interesting to see what they do on SmackDown as well.
Will Owens and Zayn Compete For The Tag Titles?
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are now part of the WWE Raw roster after Stephanie signed them. The two were fired from SmackDown after the attack on Shane a few weeks back. During their time on SmackDown, the two never really competed for the tag team titles. The two did appear in several tag team matches, making it seem like they would compete for the titles at one point. The two have had some funny segments since their return to the Raw roster but it is still unclear what they are going to do. The Raw roster has new tag team champions so it would be cool to see Owens and Zayn compete for titles, especially for Zayn since he has not won a title on the main roster.
