You never know what could happen during a big match in WWE. But it looks like some plans were changed for the Greatest Royal Rumble because at least one of the four Saudi Arabian recruits who appeared in the ring during the segment with the Daivari Brothers was supposed to be in the Greatest Royal Rumble Match.

Dave Meltzer opened up about this fact on Wrestling Observer Radio where he said that they might not have been ready for an actual spot in a match just yet but for whatever reason plans were obviously changed.

“Whatever it was they changed their mind because they had said when they did the tryout that the best guy at the tryout was getting in the Rumble and they didn’t put anyone in.”

Plans do change but it looks like something was off or they didn’t think these new recruits were ready just yet. WWE still generated plenty of attention with the segment they used the new recruits in though.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
