Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia is going to be missing some star power with several WWE stars otherwise engaged.
Crown Jewel will return on November 4th, 2023 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as WWE heads back to the Middle East for another huge show. Seth Rollins will defend his WWE World Championship on the show against Drew McIntyre while the only other confirmed match so far will see Rhea Ripley put her Women’s World Title on the line in a five-way match.
The Judgment Day’s Eradicator will have to see off the threat of Zoey Stark, Raquel Rodriguez, Shayna Baszler, and Nia Jax if she is to escape the event with her championship reign still intact.
WWE schedule another show for the night of Crown Jewel
In a change from recent years, WWE will be holding another show on the same night as Crown Jewel as a live event will take place in Rochester, New York.
Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER is being advertised to defend his title against Shinsuke Nakamura and Ricochet on the Rochester show while Charlotte Flair will challenge IYO SKY for the WWE Women’s Championship. Becky Lynch also looks set to miss out on Crown Jewel as she is slated to put her NXT Women’s Title on the line against Tiffany Stratton.
The Blue Cross Arena where the Rochester show will be held is also advertising the recently returned Carlito as well as Grayson Waller, Kofi Kingston, The Street Profits, The Brawling Brutes, and Omos for the show.
There could be a surprise in store at Crown Jewel with one absent star seemingly teased for a return at the event after missing several weeks of television.
