Some WWE Talent To Be Absent From Crown Jewel
The whole roster will not be making the trip to Riyadh.
WWE's upcoming Crown Jewel premium live event may be loaded up on star power, with Roman Reigns, John Cena and others set to perform, but some talent will be missing for the company's return to Saudi Arabia.
That is due to the show taking place on Saturday, November 4, the same day WWE has a non-televised live event booked for Rochester, New York.
The website for event host The Blue Cross Arena is advertising Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, AJ Styles, Sheamus, New Day, GUNTHER and the Street Profits as appearing. As always, the card is subject to change.
For example, the listing still has Matt Riddle advertised, despite him being released by WWE last week. The status of Sheamus is also in doubt, after it was reported that The Celtic Warrior is currently dealing with a bad shoulder injury.
No matches have been announced for Crown Jewel as of now.
Additionally, WWE will be taping the go-home edition of SmackDown a week before its November 3 airdate (due to the travel to Riyadh).
