I kinda thought this deserved its own thread...

Confirmed as a Network exclusive (think it's also on Box Office in the UK), on Friday 27 April. I think it works out as being on at about 3pm in the afternoon for us.

50 superstars in the Rumble, with Jericho and Undertaker rumoured to be amongst them, as well as 7 title defences. Mildly annoyed they're doing this for Saudi Arabia, but not over here! Something like that here would sell out a stadium over here.

Word us that it's a paid for event not a ticket based thing. I.e S.A.sports association or whatever have thrown a huuuuge chunk of money to come over and they just keep ticket sales and concessions. And with those names you can imagine how big that one off payment is. But I imagine it's going to be running a big loss for the Saudi's just to show off what they can bring in.

More matches confirmed:

Undertaker vs Rusev in a casket match (another Taker squash, I reckon)

Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for the Universal title in a Steel Cage match (so Reigns can get cheered as he wins the title?)

IC title ladder match - Rollins vs Miz vs Balor vs Samoa Joe

US title - Mahal vs Randy Orton (in case last year's matches between them weren't shit enough)

Tag titles - Bludgeon Brothers vs Usos

Plus the 50 man rumble. I've read it's on at 11pm our time, on the Friday night.

Yeah that's a squash.

I heard an interesting thought on Lesnar staying. A guy had a theory that they kept Lesnar there to break CM Punks longest title reign. And when I heard it I thought, wait didn’t they actually mention CM Punk at WM too. A random passing comment more about Lesnar's reign getting on to be the longest, but I’m sure they said longest since CM Punk on air? Anyway this theory gets more interesting. The reign would be broken if he rerained at MitB... in Chicago! The same weekend (possibly) as CM Punk's next UFC fight in Chicago!!! How insane a coincidence and opportunity would that be.

They announced the Joe match before he returned on Raw lol. That ladder match will be followed by a Roman feud on tv and PPV. Possibly non title if Lesnar does retain. Either way it will be good. But he probably isn't winning the IC. Bigger opportunities are there for Joe clearly, and well deserved.

Mahal vs Orton. I might just cancel the Network before that match.

New Day to Raw seems likely now.

Who's winning the Rumble you reckon? Nakamura again as a heel? Daniel Bryan?

And Do they get a title shot? Imagine they'd have to get to pick a title and event if it's the greatest rumble. A good way to announce a contender to keep things looking different on tv than usual.

Cena vs HHH also announced.

That card just looks like some kids wet dream of a Mania card on Universe Mode on their PlayStation...

Rusev has been tweeting some interesting stuff. 'Time for a change?' and 'Don't bury me too quickly, brother' when the casket match was announced. He's either hunting at a release, or he's trolling the fans. Would tie in with the rumour he asked for his release before Mania.

As for the 50 man winner, God knows! Virtually every main eventer is in it!

is there any reason why Rusev was suddenly changed from facing taker ?

and does the winner get a title shot like actual rumble ?

I can actually see reigns winning this time as he probably gets a better crowd reaction than he does here. As for Mahal vs Orton for the millionth time that is a pisstake and annoying last years matches were terrible.

The only match I want to see is the IC title match that could be match of the night like at mania

To annoy Rusev fans and keep up the story that he's being pooped on before mitb Cool

I bet they do get a title match, as they beat 49 other men. I'd guess they say any title at any time. Instead of Main Event at Mania. It can be built as important without it being redeemed at a big ppv main event. Just guess work though.

They want you to really hate Mahal so why not? I'm not going to be watching the match though because I give zero shits about it.

It's Jericho vs Undertaker btw. So that's big

I want to see the Rumble to see how they do it and the Royal Rumble was really well booked this year so I'm positive. I'm hoping they fly out Hurricane too, in fact I hope they show a video of Shane Helms missing the flight getting changed in the airport toilets and flying there as Hurricane himself! That's two bits I've written today in seconds with ideas popping into my head as I typed, so come on WWE writers, have some fun.

The ladder match should be good.

HHH vs Cena will be good if they want it to be more than parading two big names.

Lesnar vs Reigns in a cage means no going out of the ring through a table, so they might have to be more creative, or not. I can't imagine the psychology of Lesnar trying to escape Reigns, unless they let Reigns really snap

Rusev back in the casket match now... The best reasoning I've read (only read one rumour, but still) He was removed because he called Undertaker old... And put back in the match when they realised he wasn't offended by it...

Two wrestlemania main events now on the card with Lesnar vs Reigns in the cage and AJ vs Nakamura II (with better build than the first match too)

It really is an absolutely insane card, add AJ vs Naka for the WWE title on top of what's already on it.

WWE apparently may have spoiled some of the surprises by publishing a picture of 50 guys in an ad for it. And the winner gets a nice trophy... and no title shot.
