Final odds for WWE Crown Jewel revealed

WWE is looking to an icon as it stages perhaps the most controversial event in pro wrestling history. More

Lesnar made quick work of Braun Strowman, winning the WWE Universal Championship.

The murder of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey on 2 October led to considerable pressure being placed on WWE to cancel their Crown Jewel show, which would mark their second such event in Saudi Arabia having signed a 10-year multi-million dollar deal with that government.

"Bringing him back to host a show in Saudi Arabia is an epic case of tone deafness and reeks of total desperation after Cena and Bryan bailed on participating in the event".

AJ Styles retained the WWE Championship against Samoa Joe and The Bar also kept hold of the SmackDown tag-team titles thanks to some well-timed interference from The Big Show in their defence against The New Day.

Hogan isn't the only WWE legend taking part in the Saudi Arabia PPV, as The Undertaker and Kane aka The Brothers of Destruction, are set for a tag-team match against DX's Triple H and Shawn Michaels.

WWE Kickoff pre-show: Rusev vs. WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura. Smackdown, on the other hand, will be represented by Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, The Miz and Rey Mysterio.

Cena, who originally didn't need or have a qualifying match for the World Cup tournament, was simply replaced by Bobby Lashley with no explanation given or needed. The New Day might have gotten to ride to the ring on a sweet magic carpet - but it didn't help them carry home the gold from WWE Crown Jewel.

According to the report, WWE apparently wanted to keep Hogan's return low-key, which is the reason that the location was picked to be in Saudi Arabia.
