WWE announces the Crown Jewel Kickoff Show match

"Considering the heinous crime committed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the Company faced a very hard decision as it relates to its event scheduled for November 2 in Riyadh". On the Raw side of the bracket, Bobby Lashley (John Cena's replacement) will face Intercontinental champion Seth Rollins, with the victor taking on either Kurt Angle or Dolph Ziggler.

The World Cup tournament without Cena features Bobby Lashley vs. Seth Rollins and Kurt Angle vs. Dolph Ziggler in the A-bracket and Rey Mysterio vs.

Rumours of Cena's non-participation began to circulate last week but his name was kept on the promotional campaigns in the hope that he would reconsider his decision.

WWE is looking to an old friend to help out with the perhaps most controversial event in professional wrestling history.

WWE is set to hold its Crown Jewel event on Saturday in Saudi Arabia. "And I also want to say once again, thank all of you for allowing me to be part of something so special". I will be covering the event live beginning with the Kickoff show.

As you can see, there's a lot of "I don't know, maybe THIS?" happening, especially on the Internet right now, but here's what we know: Bryan won't be making the trip, and WWE's got to come up with a reason why he won't.

Speaking to the Orlando Sentinel last week, Hogan confirmed that he would be traveling to Saudi Arabia. Daniel Bryan was written out of the show as well after reportedly not wanting to be associated with it.

"WWE has operated in the Middle East for almost 20 years and has developed a sizable and dedicated fan base".

The former WWE Champion was reinstated into the Hall of Fame in July, and has made his first backstage appearance since the news at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

It was not the current controversy over Khashoggi that evidently made him make his decision, although one would think it made him feel more strongly that his decision wasn't wrong. "Full year 2018 guidance is predicated on the staging of the Riyadh event as scheduled".
