WWE Crown Jewel Event Of Saudi Arabia Cancelled

WWE company is underpressure to cancel the crown jewel event in organized at the 2 November.

Poll: Should WWE cancel its Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia?

With pressure mounting and Senators calling for WWE to reconsider its relationship with Saudi Arabia, reports made the rounds today that the company is still “full steam ahead” with the show and there are no plans to cancel.

 

It’s a lucrative deal for WWE, which is obviously why they’re doing it, but others have pulled out of even more lucrative business dealings over the ongoing crisis surrounding the

disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and allegations he was murdered in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey under orders from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

It’s an ugly situation. It was already a bad look that WWE made this deal considering its promotion of a women’s

revolution both within the company and beyond but this has led to a sustained outcry from both the media and the public.

The reality may very well be that WWE is benefiting from the fact that, well, pro wrestling is still relatively small potatoes in the grand scheme of things.

Still, it’s a bad look.

Having said that, we’ve had folks in the comments section right here on our site arguing that nothing has been

proven yet and WWE isn’t wrong for fulfilling its obligations as per the deal they made before any of this happened.

I certainly don’t subscribe to that line of thought but it shows there is another line of thought amongst at least some fans.

With that in mind, I wondered what the response would be if we simply ask the question to you, dear reader. So take the poll below and let us know!

WWE Crown Jewel matches, card, date, start time,

location, predictions, World Cup 2018

WWE is set to head back to Saudi Arabia for the second time this year, with the Crown Jewel event taking center stage on Friday, Nov. 2.

The first venture to the Middle East took place this past April with the Greatest Royal Rumble event, and now it’s time for the second foray into Saudi Arabia as the partnership between WWE and the Saudi General Sports Authority continues.

The start time is slated for Noon ET with the show streaming life nationally on the WWE Network.

There are still plenty of unknowns about Crown Jewel, including how many matches will take place outside of the World Cup and how many superstars will participate in the tournament.

What we do know is that both of the company’s heavyweight titles will be on the line in matches that could deliver in

a massive way, and there is an expectation that Shawn Michaels will return to action for the first time since his formal in-ring retirement.

Let’s take a look at what’s on tap for WWE Crown Jewel.

WWE Crown Jewel matches

Triple H & Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker & Kane: Heavy involvement from Michaels helped Triple H dispatch Taker at Super Show-Down in Australia.

After the match, when it looked like the four men had made up and we’re celebrating together in the ring after the bout,

the Brothers of Destruction turned on the former DeGeneration X members by Tombstone Piledriving, chokeslamming and otherwise ruining them to end the show.

On the Raw following what took place in Australia, Michaels’ in-ring return after over eight years away was confirmed as the tag team match was set.

Universal Championship — Roman Reigns (c) vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman:

Lesnar’s shocking return to interrupt the Reigns-Strowman match at Hell in a Cell has led to this triple threat, which is expected to main event the show.

Styles retained his title over Samoa Joe at Super Show-Down, and Bryan became the No. 1 contender by defeating The Miz in 2:25 on the same show.

Will, there be any interference here, or will a highly-anticipated showdown between Styles and Bryan go on as planned?

WWE World Cup: We are still awaiting information about how this will be formatted, but it appears to be a bracket-

style, single-elimination tournament akin to the old King of the Ring that will take place entirely on the show.

WWE will be holding qualifying matches on Raw and SmackDown leading up to the event.

Kurt Angle and John Cena have already qualified for the tournament,

with Angle duping Baron Corbin on Raw to win a battle royal and Cena simply being announced as an entrant.

The following night on SmackDown Live, Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton qualified by winning their respective singles matches.

WWE Crown Jewel predictions

The following matches are rumored and not confirmed at this time.

Cruiserweight Championship — Buddy Murphy (c) vs. Cedric Alexander:

 Alexander is due to his contractually-obligated rematch after dropping the title to Murphy in the latter’s home country of Australia at Super Show-Down.

This is one of the better matches that could be slotted on the card somewhere for the die-hard fans who aren’t too thrilled with the overall slate.

WWE reportedly sets backup plans for Crown Jewel as

U.S. senators speak out against the event

WWE is scheduled to make its second trip to Saudi Arabia this year for the Crown Jewel event on Nov. 2, which is set to feature marquee matches in addition to the first-ever WWE World Cup tournament.

The second venture under the 10-year agreement between WWE and the Saudi General Sports Authority — the first being the Greatest Royal Rumble event this past April — may be in jeopardy,

amid reports that Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi may have been brutally murdered by the Saudi government.

Fans were critical of WWE’s long-term partnership with Saudi Arabia from the beginning, but in the wake of these reports regarding the Saudi government, the company may be mulling the cancellation of the Nov. 2 Crown Jewel event.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter claims that WWE officials are already setting backup plans in place in the event Crown Jewel is removed from the schedule.

As the pleas for WWE to pull out of the trip have grown over the past couple of days, the company issued a statement to the media on Friday.

It was a rather brief response, with the WWE stating it’s monitoring the situation as Crown Jewel is set to

air in just three weeks time from the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

“We are currently monitoring the situation,” WWE said in the statement.
