Natalya Defeats Lacey Evans In Historic Crown Jewel Match

Natalya and Lacey Evans squared off together in the first-ever historic women’s match at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

The first women’s wrestling match in The Kingdom, everybody had eyes on this culture-changing booking, and neither woman failed to live up to the hype.

Dressed in conservative attire, Natalya and Evans kicked things off with a handshake. The stadium buzzed with “This is awesome” chants as veteran Nattie locker The Lady in the Sharpshooter to score the historic victory via submission.

Tyson Fury vs. Braun Strowman Ends In Countout

Undefeated heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury made his much-awaited WWE in-ring debut against Braun Strowman in a highly physical matchup at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

The match had a slow start after which Fury was knocked down and began selling Strowman’s blows. The Gypsy King soon made a comeback and the action spilled to the ringside.

The Monster Among Men was then counted out in what turned out to be an unsatisfactory finish and meaningless victory for Fury.
