Two Matches Added To WWE Crown Jewel

Card expands to five...

The card for WWE Crown Jewel increases to five matches on Monday, with the additions of a singles bout, as well as a multi-team tag team match.

Mansoor, the Riyadh-billed wrestler who won a 51-man battle royal at Super Show-Down in June, goes one on one with Cesaro.

Notably, Cesaro was listed in the draft pool as an eligible pick during Friday's SmackDown, only to go unpicked on the broadcast, as well as unassigned in the days since.

Also added is a nine-team "Tag Team Turmoil" match to determine "The Best Tag Team in the World". As of right now, there don't appear to be any plans to have Shane McMahon and his invisible friend take the whole thing, but plans change.

The current card for Crown Jewel, scheduled for October 31 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, looks like this:

*WWE World: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Cain Velasquez

*Braun Strowman vs. Tyson Fury

*Team Hogan (Seth Rollins, Rusev, and three TBA) vs. Team Flair (Randy Orton, King Corbin, and three TBA)

*Mansoor vs. Cesaro

*Tag Team Turmoil: The New Day, Viking Raiders, The Revival, Lucha House Party, Heavy Machinery, The OC, Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode, Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder, and The B-Team.
