Real Reason For Brock Lesnar Missing WWE Crown Jewel
Why Brock Lesnar won't be in action at WWE Crown Jewel revealed
Brock Lesnar is set to miss a Saudi Arabia pay-per-view for the first time ever as the multi-time world champion has not been booked for Crown Jewel on Saturday, November 4. Lesnar has yet to return to WWE TV since he put over Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam in early August.
PWInsider Elite has confirmed that Lesnar is "not in the creative mix" for Crown Jewel and he will not be appearing at the event. WWE sources have claimed WWE decided to not bring in Lesnar for the pay-per-view as they felt it was best to save Lesnar for a future show in Saudi Arabia due to Roman Reigns vs. LA Knight and appearances from John Cena and Logan Paul leading to an immediate sellout of the venue in Riyadh.
Brock Lesnar has had multiple world title matches at past Saudi Arabia shows, including wins over the likes of Roman Reigns, Ricochet, Braun Strowman, and Cain Velasquez. He defeated Cody Rhodes at WWE's Night of Champions event in Saudi Arabia earlier this year.
Advertised matches for Crown Jewel include Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre for the World Heavyweight Title, Logan Paul vs. Rey Mysterio for the United States Title, and Roman Reigns vs. LA Knight for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title.
