Riyadh: The countdown has begun and it is only a matter of a few hours now that WWE fans in Saudi will see their favourite wrestling superstars live in action.

The Kingdom looks set to host The Greatest Royal Rumble at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah.

Fans will get to see John Cena take on Triple H and Chris Jericho face the Undertaker. Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are set to battle it out for the WWE Universal Championship in an iron cage match.

It is not a great opportunity only for the fans, WWE fighters too are making the most of the event and getting to know Saudi people, their culture and hospitality.

WWE posted a video showing wrestler Mojo Rawley training with residents from Jeddah.

Rawley with another wrestler - Mark Henry, explored the cultural sites in Jeddah and enjoyed dune bashing and camel riding.

Henry told Saudi media,“Ever since I got off the plane everyone has welcomed me warmly. Sometimes we don’t get that back home.”

The two also spent time with 30 school children from a non-profit organisation and shared stories.
