Brock Lesnar challenges for Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship.
With the pandemic easing up, WWE has been able to take its show on the (international) road once again — and you know what that means. WWE is returning to Saudi Arabia in October for another morally dubious wrestling extravaganza! The company’s shows in Saudi Arabia are mixed bags: The crowd is often unresponsive and flat, but the match cards are insane. Remember: Saudi Arabia paid WWE so much money that Shawn Michaels came out of retirement in 2018.
Only a few matches are official for Crown Jewel 2021. It’s being headlined by Roman Reigns defending his Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar, while Becky Lynch’s SmackDown Women’s Championship is up for grabs in a triple threat match. It’s yet to be confirmed, but Goldberg will probably be wrestling Bobby Lashley at the show. We’ll update this story as more matches become official.
