WWE Super ShowDown 50-Man Battle Royal Actually Had 51 Entrants

False advertising!

When WWE announced the card for Super ShowDown in Jeddah, one of the initially-advertised matches was a 50-man battle royal. One potential issue brought up at the time was logistical - how were 50 men going to fit inside one solitary ring?

Not only did WWE fit 50 men in the ring for that battle royal - they fit 51.

Perhaps to demonstrate the sturdiness of their rings, WWE crammed an extra wrestler into the match, as sharp-eyed viewers have pointed out.

The field for the battle royal included: Mansoor, Elias, Samoa Joe, The Miz, Xavier Woods, The Usos, Matt Hardy, Cesaro, Shinsuke Nakamura, Ali, Ricochet, Robert Roode, Rowan, Apollo Crews, Buddy Murphy, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, Rusev, The Revival, The Viking Raiders, Jinder Mahal, Shelton Benjamin, Tony Nese, Chad Gable, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, The Authors of Pain, Akira Tozawa, The B-Team, The Brian Kendrick, Cedric Alexander, Drew Gulak, EC3, Eric Young, Heath Slater, Humberto Carrillo, Mike Kanellis, Mojo Rawley, No Way Jose, Oney Lorcan, Heavy Machinery, The Singh Brothers, Sin Cara, and Titus O'Neil.

Notably absent from the match, and show, was 24/7 champion R-Truth, although he did apparently make the flight to Jeddah.
