Billed as the greatest Royal Rumble in history, the annual must-watch WWE wrestling event headed to King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 27th April. Featuring no less than 50 WWE superstars including John Cena and Triple H, as well as Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton and many more, the event was screened to millions of wrestling fans around the world.
To ensure one of the biggest events in wrestling was as spectacular as it promised to be, leading display screen specialist Creative Technology asked a team of experienced Showforce crew to assist with the load in and install of more than 1500 linear metres of LED video screens over both the main stage and the ring side stage. Onsite for 10 days before the Royal Rumble got underway, the team worked tirelessly to ensure everything was in place for the showcase event. Showforce supplied 15 crew members in total, including four international crew chiefs who flew out from the UK and senior crew members from the UAE.
The Royal Rumble itself was a huge success. A packed out arena watched Braun Strowman take the title, walking away with a huge trophy.
Once the fans had all gone home Showforce returned to help Creative Technology with the de-rig.
