WWE is taking a stellar roster of wrestlers to the Middle East for its Crown Jewel pay-per-view event, which will see the return of Shawn Michaels (HBK) after an eight-year absence.
The Heartbreak Kid will feature in the flagship match of the event – taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – when he teams up with fellow DeGeneration X member, Triple H, as they take on the Brothers of Destruction, Kane and The Undertaker, in a tag-team match.
The big names and the big matches don’t end there. The WWE World Cup is another highlight of the event, which will see eight of the WWE’s star performers compete in a single-elimination tournament. Those competing include John Cena, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, Seth Rollings, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz and Rey Mysterio.
Elsewhere, Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman will compete for the vacant Universal title after the announcement by former champion Roman Reigns that he is battling leukaemia. AJ Styles will defend his WWE Championship belt against Daniel Bryan and The Bar will be putting their SmackDown Tag Team Championship belt on the line against New Day.
