In the end, after several rumors and rumors leaking from the WWE circles, the official has arrived: on October 21st, the crew of the McMahon company will fly once again to Saudi Arabia, to hold yet another Arab PPV that is now missing.
for almost two years, with Crown Jewel that will see the return of WWE Superstars after almost two years of a global pandemic. For the occasion, the WWE is as always trying to do things big, given that the prince of the Asian country always tries to sign the best Superstars, regardless of expenses and indeed offering millions and millions of dollars from his own pocket, for bringing back characters that are not usually seen in the WWE rings, such as Shawn Michaels, Bill Goldberg, Brock Lesnar or Triple H, as has happened in recent years.
Like a bolt from the blue, during the night, WWE already wanted to formalize the first match titled for the Arab PPV, bringing out a challenge that was now only a matter of time before WWE Universe fans saw, the one between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.
WWE's Crown Jewel PPV is set for October 21st
WWE's Crown Jewel pay-per-view is set for October 21st, 2021. The event will be held in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It will be the first time WWE has returned to Saudi Arabia since February 2020.
Technically, it is not known if the match between Reigns and Lesnar will be valid for the Universal title, given that before the clash with Lesnar, the Tribal Chief will have to contend with Finn Balor in the Demon version, but it is very likely that Balor will also end up in the list of victims of the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown, with the challenge on September 26th, to Extreme Rules, which will therefore be just one of the many in which the Universal champion took part.
Thanks to this tweet, however, WWE wanted to confirm well in advance (over a month), how the showdown between Lesnar and Reigns will arrive in Saudi Arabia: It will now also be necessary to see what will become of Paul Heyman, with the manager of the Tribal Chief who seems disputed on both sides, with Roman Reigns who does not trust his manager very much, but at the same time with Brock Lesnar who has already tried to attack him.
in that of Smackdown, in the last possible opportunity for him. Is Lesnar and Heyman's just a strategy to deflect doubts about their on-screen partnership? Or have the two after almost twenty years of collaboration have really come to terms with it? Surely at Crown Jewel or in the episodes close to the ppv, we will know more.
