• One Of The Funniest Moments In WWE History Took Place 3 Years Ago Today, Vince McMahon’s Reaction
3 Years ago today, WWE’s first-ever Saudi Arabia PPV took place – Greatest Royal Rumble 2018!
This PPV was like a second WrestleMania of 2018 (and that too in the same month!), as many big names worked the show, including The Undertaker, Triple H, John Cena, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Mark Henry and Brock Lesnar.
60,000 Fans were in attendance for this show.
During this event, one of the funniest moments in WWE history took place, when Titus O’Neil slipped during his entrance in the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match.
WWE Commentators Michael Cole & Corey Graves couldn’t stop laughing when this happened.
You can watch it below:
According to WrestlingnewsCo, Vince McMahon burst into laughter and was almost in tears due to the moment being so hilarious. Vince couldn’t get enough of it and told the production crew to show multiple replays of it.
Wrestlers backstage were laughing hard at the incident as well.
A lot of wrestlers trolled Titus for this funny moment, but only one showed concern – Santino Marella:
@TitusONeilWWE falling was inches away from catastrophic, if he caught his forehead on the lower bar of the ring he could’ve broke his neck
