Alleged Reason Why Hiroki Sumi Was In The Greatest Royal Rumble Match


Speaking on yesterday’s episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer gave a possible reason why sumo legend Hiroki Sumi was in the Greatest Royal Rumble match. Meltzer said that during a conversation between Vince McMahon and the Saudi prince who organized the show, the Prince named some Superstars he wanted at the show which included the Ultimate Warrior, Undertaker and Yokozuna.

Meltzer speculated that this was the reason why Vince felt compelled to add Sumi to the show because he looks similar to Yokozuna.
