WWE Crown Jewel will take place on November 2, 2018 at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The event will feature the first-ever WWE World Cup, the crowning of a new Universal Champion, and the in-ring return of Shawn Michaels.

WWE Universal Championship: Braun Strowman versus Brock Lesnar
WWE Crown Jewel: Braun Strowman versus Brock Lesnar
A really sad condition of matters brought as much as that one-on-one, using the champion Roman Reigns relinquishing his title within an emotional speech where he revealed he’s battling leukaemia for that second time.
That which was set to become a Triple Threat Match for Roman’s crown has become a singles match for that vacant title.
It will be difficult to love this particular understanding how it came into being, but when we are able to pressure that from the brain we have had a pretty stonking match here.
Brock Lesnar went from part-timer to barely-there-at-all-er but nonetheless comes with an air of mystique about him despite losing the championship and the UFC dalliances.
Braun Strowman has felt just like a champion in awaiting a lengthy, lengthy time, so we believed that his Money staying with you briefcase win would surely function as the moment.
They are two massive, massive presences and will also end up like watching two freight trains on the collision course once they get together.
We are opting for Braun here, partially because we so anxiously want the Monster on the top where he should be, and partially while he performs this week in and week out and really should be raring to visit.
WWE Crown Jewel: AJ Styles versus Samoa Joe
After a lot of feuds where he (eventually) arrived on the scene on the top, including an exciting-important decider against his Fight Forever rival The Miz, D-Bry finally should be #1 Contender for that WWE Championship once again.
An aspiration match a lot of us thought we’d never see: AJ Styles versus Daniel Bryan, within the WWE, for that WWE Championship, on pay-per-view.
However with the debate all around the whole event, Daniel Bryan opted to remain home, which meant his complement AJ Styles was rushed a couple of days in early stages SmackDown Live.
Styles targeted Bryan’s broken knee and managed to get the win and retain his title, however his old foe Samoa Joe showed up in this area and required out both men.
That inevitably brought for this: ANOTHER rematch for Samoa Joe against his longtime ROH/TNA/WWE rival AJ Styles, using the belt at risk once again.
We are big, big on Joe here, but the expertise of the final couple of several weeks just does not convince us he has got the way of measuring the outstanding One right now.
Something must change for him to obtain that edge, also it has not happened yet.
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus) versus The Brand New Day (Xavier Forest, Kofi Kingston and/or Big E)
WWE Crown Jewel: The Bar versus The Brand New Day
The Bar yoinked the tag belts in the New Day inside a last-minute title match on SmackDown 1000 with some help from the large Show.
We suppose Show is going to be present at Crown Jewel to assist even some misconception, as regardless of the New Day only sticking a few fellas within the ring of these matches, their third man always has a tendency to play an essential part around the outdoors.
Despite Show’s imposing presence, this really may go in either case, as both teams are such well-oiled machines who are able to think quickly in almost any situation.
We are likely to choose the Bar retaining, with Big Show ensuring of products for that duo… though we are not entirely certain what he’s searching for in exchange.
When it comes to New Day, it’s past due for those three men to do it yourself.
Kofi Kingston, Xavier Forest and large E are incredible individual talents, that is frequently overlooked such may be the excellence of the working together.
No requirement for chair shots and recriminations though, the Smart Sports Buddies must have each other peoples backs because they seek, and get, singles success.
WWE World Cup: Rey Mysterio, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Shaun Sturdy, Kurt Position, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley
John Cena Bobby Lashley Kurt Position Shaun Sturdy Randy Orton Seth Rollins Dolph Ziggler The Miz Rey Mysterio
There will be seven matches around the night (wowzers) with quarter, semis along with a final to crown the world Cup Champion.
The brackets for that Quarters were confirmed a couple of days prior to the event and are listed below:
A: Bobby Lashley versus. Seth Rollins
B: Kurt Position versus. Dolph Ziggler
C: Shaun Sturdy versus. The Miz
D: Rey Mysterio versus. Randy Orton
Despite all of the computations, we are prepared to stick our necks here.
Shaun Sturdy and Randy Orton continue to be very worried with battling one another to have their eye around the prize.
Kurt Position and John Cena have has got the passion and experience but there will be an excessive amount of ring rust to win three matches around the night.
E: Champion A versus Champion B:
F: Champion C versus Champion D
Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins coping an excessive amount of emotional fallout in the recent unfaithfulness they have endured on Monday Night Raw.
That leaves a resurgent Bobby Lashley, The Miz and Rey Mysterio, and from recent evidence we are able to consider 619 explanations why this a person’s likely to Rey.
Champion E versus Champion F
D-Generation X (Triple H and Shawn Michaels) versus Siblings of Destruction (The Undertaker and Kane)
WWE Crown Jewel: D-Generation X versus The Siblings of Destruction
Therefore it is arrived at this. After eight years away, Shawn Michaels has returned inside a WWE ring being an Actual Competitor the very first time.
It had been The Undertaker who “upon the market” him obviously, therefore it is fitting the Deadman is involved with his return.
Kane and HBK got pulled into that one throughout the build towards the Undertaker and Triple H’s ‘Last Time Ever’ singles match around australia, and today they are really a part of things within this tag fight.
We are in 2 minds on Shawn Michaels’s comeback. Possibly the only real man in the organization having a perfect retirement match and moment, tossing that away as well as for what?
We think of the E is which makes it worth his while, and also the lines are that his pride continues to be seriously wounded by Taker’s barbs. No respect = no retirement.
Regardless of the story is here now, the(ahem) bald the fact is that there are three part-timers and something guy just from retirement having a combined chronilogical age of 27825789257 within the ring.
We are just wishing that four manage to use something to warrant HBK’s return, and we are believing that hunger and drive on his return can help him win that one.
For what’s next? The term is really a one-on-one rematch between Shawn Michaels and also the Undertaker, either at Survivor Series this season or WrestleMania the following.
