WWE Crown Jewel Location & Date Confirmed

WWE crown jewel

WWE will return to Saudi Arabia in November.

As reported by Mike Johnson of PWInsider, the Crown Jewel Premium Live Event will return on Saturday, November 4th and will be broadcast live from Riyadh. This will be the second time that the company has visited the kingdom in 2023, as Night of Champions was broadcast live from Saudi Arabia on May 27th.

The report looks to be backed up by the current list of future events on Raw tapings have been advertised on October 30th and November 6th, but there is no SmackDown listing for the November 3rd episode. This has been the case in the past when the company held international Premium Live Events and pre-taped the go-home show ahead of time to allow travel. It is likely that those attending the October 27th SmackDown taping will get their value for money as WWE will tape two episodes back to back.

WWE Set To Present Crown Jewel For The 5th Time

Wrestling fans have a complicated relationship with Crown Jewel, as previous events have produced some of the more bizarre matches and results. Putting all their cards on the table for the first-ever event, the 2018 show saw Shawn Michaels come out of retirement to team with Triple H to take on The Brothers of Destruction in a match that all 4 competitors have stated the quality could have been better. This was also the same show where Shane McMahon was crowned the best wrestler in the world.

One year later saw the in-ring debuts of boxer Tyson Fury and former UFC fighter Cain Velasquez and was main evented by “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt defeating Seth Rollins in a match that could not be stopped following their infamous Hell in a Cell finish at the previous pay-per-view.

The event would be put on hold for 2 years due to the global pandemic and would return in 2021. Improving greatly on its predecessors, Crown Jewel 2021 saw Edge defeat Seth Rollins in one of the best Hell in a Cell matches in recent memory and also saw Goldberg defeat Bobby Lashley in one of the Hall of Famer’s better matches since returning. The most recent event was main evented by Logan Paul challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Championship.
