WWE Crown Jewel Saudi Arabia: John Cena, Roman Reigns and Cristiano Ronaldo
If rumor is to be believed, the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia will be a star-studded affair.
The WWE event will feature John Cena and Roman Reigns, as well as football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
John Cena and Roman Reigns
According to Haus of Wrestling, John Cena is being advertised for WWE’s next premium live event in Saudi Arabia, for November 14. The wrestler-actor had pulled out of the 2018 WWE premium live event in the Kingdom because of negative optics. But this time around, there will be no stops for John Cena.
Dave Meltzer, of Wrestling Observer, said Cena had pulled out of the last WWE show in Saudi Arabia he had been booked on. “But it’s no longer an issue that could have negative effects on his career since everyone is back doing business with the country now.”
Cena was last seen in Saudi Arabia working the Greatest Royal Rumble 2018 show – this was the first event under WWE’s deal with the kingdom.
Moreover, Roman Reigns’ is also expected to grace the event. WWE has also advertised the former American football player, who performs on the SmackDown brand, as a return match.
Cristiano Ronald at Crown Jewel
Word going around is that FC Al Nassr’s striker Cristiano Ronald will make a guest appearance at the much awaited WWE Crown Jewel Saudi Arabia event. He will feature as a “superstar guest” at the live wrestling event.
Endeavor, the UFC owners who acquired WWE in April 2023, is very keen to boost Crown Jewel’s profile and revenue. It was expected to close the planned merger of UFC and WWE on September 12.
Now, the Endeavor Group is taking all the shots and making sure that it includes the “big names”. It will secure CR7’s appearance with a handsome amount (appearance fee).
