WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry has described the upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble Pay Per View as like WrestleMania in an interview with The National.
Speaking to the Middle East's biggest English-language newspaper, Henry said how the show will give many wrestlers who haven't competed in a while to showcase their skills.
He said: "Great Khali, Kurt Angle, Bobby Lashley, Rey Mysterio and myself and many others. It is an unbelievable thing."
The former World Champion also said how he is set on winning the historic 50-Man Royal Rumble Match.
"It is a historic event and if I win it my name will be immortalised in the record books so it is something that I am aiming for," Henry said.
The Greatest Royal Rumble will take place at the King Abdullah stadium and will be the first WWE Pay Per View in Saudi Arabia.
"The one common denominator is seeing whether people are happy that you are coming and then how happy they are afterwards that you came," Henry said on the similarities between U.S and Arab audiences.
At Night of Champions 2011, Henry defeated Randy Orton to win the World Heavyweight Championship. In the interview, the World's Strongest Man described Orton as one of the superstars he respects the most.
"Not many people can be as smooth and polished in the ring as Randy is, and still be over with the fans, and he is one of the very best in the industry."
"For me to able to win over him twice in a row was one of the biggest things in my career."
