Dave Meltzer Reveals WWE Crown Jewel 2023 Match Ratings

Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel

Dave Meltzer has unveiled his star ratings for WWE Crown Jewel.

On November 4th, WWE headed to Saudi Arabia for the final time in 2023.

The show was headlined by the Undisputed WWE Universal Title match between long-reigning champion Roman Reigns and LA Knight. Despite his popularity, and calls from fans for him to grab the win, LA Knight came up short.

Earlier in the night, Seth Rollins, Rhea Ripley, and Iyo Sky retained their respective titles, with Kairi Sane making her WWE return to help Sky grab the win.

Meanwhile, Logan Paul picked up the biggest win of his career, pinning Rey Mysterio to win the United States Title.

One of the show’s biggest surprises on the show came as Solo Sikoa utterly demolished John Cena. The Bloodline’s enforcer, destroyed the 16-time World Champion like few before him, hitting him with no less than 11 Samoan Spikes.

Following the crushing defeat, John Cena has repeatedly hinted at retirement.
