The WWE Greatest Royal Rumble Championship, also known as the Belt Kingdom Championship (Arabic: حزام بطولة المملكة), is a professional wrestling championship created and promoted by American professional wrestling promotion WWE and sanctioned by the Saudi General Sports Authority.[2] The current and inaugural champion is Braun Strowman, who won the championship on April 27, 2018 during the main event of the Greatest Royal Rumble event at King Abdullah Sports City's King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

History[edit | edit source]

On March 5, 2018, WWE and the Saudi General Sports Authority advertised the Greatest Royal Rumble, a live event to be held on April 27, 2018, at King Abdullah International Stadium, part of the King Abdullah Sports City, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.[3][4] The event is a part of a 10-year strategic multi-platform partnership between WWE and the Saudi General Sports Authority in support of Saudi Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia's social and economic reform program.[5][6] The Greatest Royal Rumble Championship was created by WWE on April 27, 2018 during the Greatest Royal Rumble event at the King Abdullah Sports City's King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.[7] The championship was announced on the official website of the Saudi General Sports Authority as the Belt Kingdom Championship.[8] Braun Strowman, the 41st entrant of the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match, became the inaugural Greatest Royal Rumble Champion by lastly eliminating Big Cass.[9][10][11]

Championship belt design[edit | edit source]

As with some other championship belts unveiled in 2016, the base design is similar to the WWE Championship, with notable differences.[12] Instead of a large cut out of the WWE logo, the center plate is modeled with Arabic pattern with the WWE logo in the center. Like the WWE Championship belt and other belts introduced in 2016 and 2017, the Greatest Royal Rumble Championship belt features two side plates, both separated by gold divider bars, with removable round sections that can be replaced with the current champion's logo; the default plates feature the official logo of Saudi General Sports Authority which is identical to the national emblem of Saudi Arabia. The plates are on a green leather strap resembling the color of the national flag of Saudi Arabia.
