World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced this morning that, hot on the heels of its Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia, the company will hold an event in Dubai called The Greatest WrestleMania.
To be held Sunday May 20 at the Dubai International Cricket Station, the event “will be, quite frankly, more spectacular and fantabulous and scrumtrulescent than all past WrestleManias combined, quite frankly,” said WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
Some critics have suggested McMahon’s hyperbole, and the boastful name of the event, have something to do with the fact that WWE will earn an estimated $84.9 quadrillion from the event.
WWE Superstars have already begun pointing at the Greatest WrestleMania sign, signalling that we are on the Road to The Greatest WrestleMania (or at least The Road Leading Toward The Road to The Greatest WrestleMania).
Matches already booked for the card:
- Undertaker vs.
- 75-man Muhammad Hassan Memorial Battle Royal
- Reunited Four Horsemen vs. Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock and Shawn Michaels
- Kalisto vs. Primo Colon (Hell in a Cell)
- Former Partners Collide: Braun Strowman vs. Nicholas
The majority of wrestling fans, unable to find Dubai on a map, are likely to think the event is a Tribute to the Troops from whatever country America is at war with at the moment.
