Arriving as number 39 in the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia on Friday night, O'Neill sprinted to the ring like a man on a mission to make an unforgettable impact on the landmark event.
The event was on a par with "WrestleMania" with matches and presentation.
"I think the Middle East, the Saudi region has always had a massive fan base", wrestler Triple-H, now a WWE executive whose real name is Paul Levesque, told CNBC this week. This was basically a greatest hits montage from The Deadman, who picked up the win by putting both Rusev and Aiden English into the casket.
Babatunde Aiyegbusi wasn't the only former Vikings player at the Greatest Royal Rumble.
Brock Lesnar retains Universal Championship beating Roman Reigns Hate him or love him, Roman Reigns does what is asked of him time and again and it was no different at Jeddah as well. However, if you like finishing moves that don't finish the match, Lesnar vs. Reigns is for you.
Cedric Alexander defeated Kalisto to retain Cruiserweight Championship.
As far as my overall thoughts on this event goes, it can be summed up with a simple statement of "glorified house show".
However, Finn Balor has taken to Twitter to clarify that Saudi Arabia had nothing to do with him not wearing the rainbow shirt in his Intercontinental Title ladder match and that he simply wore the shirt for a special occasion and that was it.
He gets another shot at AJ Styles's WWE World Heavyweight title at Backlash after Friday's match ended in a double countout, a result that left Styles still champion. While the annual January Rumble features 30 entrants, this one will have a whopping 50.

With the match over, Cena took centre stage in the ring and grabbed hold of a microphone, thanking the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the "honour" and "privilege" of allowing him to compete at the Greatest Royal Rumble. He walked away with a custom-made WWE title and a huge trophy.
The match will be a Royal Rumble format (with wrestlers entering at set intervals of time) rather than a battle royal format (with all the wrestlers beginning in the ring at the same time).
