WWE's Greatest Royal Rumble event is now only a week ago and the show's card looks absolutely stacked with many superstars competing and several titles on the line. One championship match though could be about to get even bigger though.

Currently, seven titles are expected to be defended at the Greatest Royal Rumble event at the King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, including a fatal four-way ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship.

Current Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins is set to defend his title against Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and The Miz at the event, but if local advertisement in Saudi Arabia is to be believed, another superstar will soon be added to the match.

PWInsider notes that local advertising for the event in the Middle East lists Bobby Lashley as one of the competitors in the Intercontinental Championship ladder match, changing it from a fatal four-way to a fatal five-way.

As you can see in the video further down in this article, Lashley is advertised for the match at the Greatest Royal Rumble despite the fact WWE themselves are yet to confirm The Dominator's involvement.

This could mean one of two things. Either the advertisement is out of date and WWE has had a change of plans, or Lashley will be added to the match at some point between now and the event taking place next Friday. We could find out as early as next Monday night on Raw.

The fact that Lashley could soon be added to the match shows that WWE has a lot of faith in him upon his return to the company after over ten years away and that he will most likely be involved in or around the Intercontinental Championship picture on Raw between now and SummerSlam.


It seems unlikely that The Dominator will be walking away from the King Abdullah International Stadium as the new Intercontinental Champion, but never say never when it comes to the WWE these days.

It could be exactly what the company has in mind for him to get his return off to a flying start, or he could just be there to add more uncertainty to the outcome of the match.
