WWE Crown Jewel 2019 is scheduled to happen on October 31, 2019, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. WWE does at least two events every year since the company signed a deal with the country. The event attracts a lot of fans and because of its heavy promotion, this Pay-per-view surpassed even WrestleMania last year. Because of this, WWE tries to make this a lifetime event and does everything it can to attract even more viewers.
This year WWE announced two matches that are sure to be ticket sellers. The first match is between Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez, and the second match will see Braun Strowman going up against boxer Tyson Fury. The night will also see Team Hulk Hogan go up against Team Rick Flair. Apart from that, the match between Seth Rollins and 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt is also rumoured to happen at Crown Jewel.
The first man Brock Lesnar will defend his newly won WWE Championship title is against Cain Velasquez. If you’re unaware, Cain knocked out Lesnar to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship from him. After his defeat, Brock Lesnar was unable to fight for months. Cain Velasquez made his WWE debut at the opening episode of SmackDown on FOX. During the episode, he took Brock Lesnar down and punished him by delivering several punches to The Beast. Lesnar fled from the ring with Paul Hayman and his WWE Championship belt. Cain Velasquez earlier revealed that he will again defeat Brock Lesnar and give him another scar on his face.
After last week’s event, it was obvious that these two will face each other at WWE Crown Jewel. The situation between the two worsened when two started a brawl last week and dozens of WWE superstars had to come in and restore order. It all started when Braun Strowman taunted and later threw Dolph Ziggler at Tyson Fury which knocked him out of balance back into his seat. Tyson Fury reacted by jumping the guard rail, and as he was about to enter the ring to take his revenge, security guards came and restrained him. This time security won’t be interfering the match and fans will know who is the real monster.
After the events of Hell in a Cell, fans were impressed with the outcome and the chants of AEW filled the arena. Speculations had been running rife that Rollins will be coming to last week’s Raw to confront The Fiend, but that didn’t happen. Last week on SmackDown when Rollins was fighting Roman Reigns to win the number one draft pick, Wyatt arrived in the ring and again punished Rollins. It’s about time that the champ confronts Wyatt and challenges him for a match.
