Crown Jewel returned to the rings of Riyadh several months after the last event held in the Asian country. After a year and a half of world pandemic that had blocked the WWE in the United States, without being able to hold even the shows with the audience in the hall, having to equip themselves with ThunderDome, the McMahons will return, by popular demand, to stage one of their great successes in Saudi Arabia, with very big names that will return to the field only for Saudi fans.
After Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg, WWE also wanted to confirm the last match, last second, which arrived just a few hours ago, with the kick-off of the show that was filled with a tag team match between The Usos, champions of a pair of Friday Night Smackdown and Raw's All Mighty henchmen, back alongside former WWE Champion: Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin.
In the last few hours, a short video has also emerged online in which we see a preview of the stage built by the McMahon federation for Crown Jewel, with the usual colors of green and blue that will probably dominate the arena of Riyadh.
Possible spoiler on Crown Jewel
WWE will travel to Saudi Arabia for the first time in over a year, with Crown Jewel set to transpire on Thursday. The card has been set, but a few changes could yet take place from now until showtime in Riyadh.
Thanks to the Planeta Wrestling website, we learn about some important details of the stage built by the experienced WWE workers, who now take care of assembling and disassembling rings, scripts, sets of lights and LED screens in all the most disparate parts of the world.
The following video has already been around the world: We remember how from the day after Crown Jewel, or Friday 22 October, WWE will make its Draft moves definitive, with several wrestlers who will change headquarters, moving from Monday Night Raw to Friday Night Smackdown, ending alliances, feuds and rivalries with different wrestlers.
Crown Jewel 2021, will therefore be a watershed that WWE will use to refresh the rosters, after a whole year of watching matches between the Superstars themselves, with new inputs and new contests that will keep WWE Universe fans around the world in suspense.
Nine matches are currently set for Crown Jewel, with WWE likely to add a match to the Kickoff Show. But what match will it be? If WWE opts to book a title match, Shinsuke Nakamura may make the trip to Saudi Arabia and defend his Intercontinental Championship.
He has wrestled at most shows of this kind, even defending the US title against Rusev on the Crown Jewel Kickoff Show in 2018.
