WWE Crown Jewel will take place on November 2, 2018 from the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The pay-per-view is part of the WWE’s 10-year partnership with the General Sports Authority of Saudi Arabia.
WWE confirmed to proceed with Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia despite huge backlash and mounting pressure from fans, US Senators and Superstars owing to the Khashoggi murder case. This led John Cena and Daniel Bryan to officially pull out of the event. They were eventually replaced by Bobby Lashley and Samoa Joe.
The following is the (updated) official WWE Crown Jewel match card:
Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman
D-Generation X vs. The Brothers of Destruction
8-Man WWE World Cup Tournament
WWE Championship: AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe
