As the WWE Universe buzzes with anticipation, Crown Jewel 2023 is poised to broadcast live from the Mohammed Abdu Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The grand spectacle promises to be an unforgettable addition to the wrestling calendar, further elevating the company's significant presence in the Middle East.
This premium live event, one of the year’s marquee showcases alongside Survivor Series and Deadline, is brimming with star power. The headliner features the indomitable Roman Reigns, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, as he squares off against the meteoric LA Knight.
The match card also boasts wrestling luminaries such as Seth Rollins, Cody Rhodes, Rhea Ripley, IYO SKY, John Cena, and Bianca Belair, ensuring a night of high-octane action. But beyond the planned chaos in the ring, whispers of unexpected twists swirl through the air.
Could this event mark the astonishing return of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to the WWE arena? Given the Hollywood megastar's hiatus from acting due to the ongoing industry strike, the door is wide open for a dramatic appearance that would send shockwaves through the wrestling world.
If Rock Step into Crown Jewel
Imagine the electrifying scenarios if The Rock were to step into the Crown Jewel limelight. Here are four potential seismic shifts he could cause at the event:
- The Bloodline Feud Ignited: Reigns, at the pinnacle of pro-wrestling, may find his celebration cut short if The Rock confronts him post-match, potentially setting the stage for a family feud that fans have been clamouring for.
- Talk Show Tension: 'The Grayson Waller Effect' talk show could serve as the perfect platform for The Rock to spar verbally with Waller, especially given The Rock's past with Waller’s associate, Austin Theory.
- Championship Chaos: The Rock might intervene in Reigns' title defense against LA Knight, not for the championship glory but to topple Reigns from his lofty perch, potentially crowning a new champion in LA Knight.
- Alliance with Cena: With the possibility of Jimmy Uso interfering in Cena's grudge match against Solo Sikoa, The Rock could emerge as Cena's ally, reigniting their past camaraderie to battle The Bloodline's influence.
