In recent weeks, WWE has made a lot of effort to put together the entire card of Crown Jewel, the next pay-per-view that will air on the 21st of this month, from the rings of Riyadh, home to the other great special events that the WWE has held on Arab land for the past few years.
After signing the multi-year agreement with the Arab principality's family, WWE staged several major events, always from the same venue, with Crown Jewel and Super ShowDown, which drew thousands upon thousands of fans, to see characters such as The Undertaker, Bill Goldberg, Kane or Shawn Michaels return to tread the rings in huge matches for fans based in that part of the world.
Apparently, again this year, there will be great characters who will see it in the WWE rings, for the Arab public, among others: Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg, with some feuds that are still modified and invented by WWE, week after week.
Also this night, during Monday Night Raw, we witnessed a split that seemed to have been phoned for weeks and which the fans could not wait to attend, namely the one between Ali and Mansoor, with the former leader of Retribution who struck in the backstage his now-former ally, leading WWE to insert a match between the two at Crown Jewel.
Crown Jewel: Events in Saudi Arabia have been huge for WWE
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.
After seeing Ali rage on Mansoor, returning to be a real heel, after weeks of limbo alongside the Arab athlete former NXT, WWE has formalized a match between the two of Raw's mid-carding just for the next event , which obviously Mansoor could not miss, like all the latest dedicated events.
Let's see how the event card became, still about 10 days before the Arab ppv: - Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for the Universal title - Big E vs Drew McIntyre for the WWE title - Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks vs Bianca Belair for the Smackdown Women's Champion title - RKBro vs AJ Styles & Omos for Raw Tag Team Champions titles - Goldberg vs Bobby Lashley - NO DQ Match - Seth Rollins vs Edge - Hell in a Cell match - Mansoor vs Mustafa Ali.
