Although 46 spots remain, we finally have a couple of participants announced for Friday’s WWE Super ShowDown special.
WWE has been advertising “a 50-Man Battle Royal — the largest in WWE history” since the beginning of their promotional push towards their return to the Saudi Arabian market for WWE Super ShowDown on June 7. When the final week leading up to the event began on Monday, there had yet to be a single entrant announced for the match.
In fact, other than the official WWE Super ShowDown mini site at WWE.com, the company hadn’t really acknowledged the match.
Four Superstars Entered Into WWE’s 50-Man Battle Royal
During a commercial break segment on Monday’s “go-home” show for Friday’s live special, Mojo Rawley declared that he would be entering the 50-Man Battle Royal in Saudi Arabia. WWE followed that up on Tuesday night in similar fashion as Elias revealed during an off-air segment on last night’s SmackDown Live that he too would be entering the match.
Additionally, Karl Anderson took to social media on Tuesday evening to announce that he and Luke Gallows will be making the trip to Jeddah this week to compete in the 50-Man Battle Royal.

Other Rumored Entrants For Super ShowDown Battle Royal
While WWE has yet to reveal a list of participants for the match, there have been rumors that NXT Superstars will be flown to Saudi Arabia to be included in the match, with Matt Riddle being one specific name that has been making the rounds.
A.J. Styles has also been rumored, as he has been included in the advertising for WWE Super ShowDown, but does not have a match yet with only two days remaining until the show. With “The Phenomenal One” recovering from an injury as of late, it would make since for WWE to have him work a match with limited physicality.
