King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

WWE returns to Saudi Arabia this November.

Following on from the success of the sold-out Greatest Royal Rumble earlier this year, The Crown Jewel promises to be another bumper event.

The show’s headliner will be a triple-threat match for the WWE Universal championship between Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman.

Given his links with UFC, this could be the last time we see Brock in a WWE ring.

Also on the bill will be the first-ever WWE World Cup tournament. The format of this is not yet revealed.

The Crown Jewel will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East. Ticket availability and regional broadcast information will be announced in the coming weeks.

Brock Lesnar returns to wreak havoc in Hell in a Cell main event

Brock Lesnar returned to unleash fury at Hell in a Cell

Pick the bones out of this one.

Let’s begin with how the match started out – a singles match between WWE Universal champ Roman Reigns, and the man who took the honourable route with the Money in the Bank briefcase, Braun Strowman.

Not a classic was it?

Another pay-per-view card with two big guys topping the bill, is reduced to a restricted number of power moves, and the crowd wasn’t really feeling it.


Enter Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.








Realistically the four to competed earlier in the night were only there for the obligatory spots off the cell – something Reigns and Strowman wouldn’t be doing in a hurry.


At one point all four men were battling it out on the top of the structure, and while the Ziggler/Rollins simultaneous fall from the side of the cage through the announce tables was okay – it was nothing to write home about.


It was at this point things got interesting and the match was saved. Enter Brock Lesnar.


You know, the guy vanquished by Reigns at SummerSlam, now off back to the UFC. Or so we thought.


His kicking through of the cell door, followed by the dismantling of Reigns and Strowman was just the twist the top of the bill needed.


In all the chaos we kind of forgot about Ambrose and McIntyre, they could still be on top of the cell for all we know.


While a no-contest finish is never usually too satisfying, on this occasion it was just the ticket.


So, is Brock back? Or was it just a parting gift? When will Reigns and Strowman dance again?


Where things go on RAW will be interesting from here.

Ronda Rousey battled busted-up ribs to retain the RAW Women's title

Did you think some busted up ribs would be enough to keep down the Baddest Woman on the Planet?

Me neither.

While this was a better contested match than the one Ronda Rousey had with Alexa Bliss at Summerslam, there was never going to be a change of the RAW Women’s Championship.

Bliss was able to mount much more offence this time round, but it was still not enough to down the former UFC champ.


While the added fight did something to show Bliss in a stronger light this time round, the premature tap to Rousey’s armbar didn’t – let’s at least have the arm straight before the submission comes.








In all the outcome was favourable for both, and effectively closes the door on the rivalry for now.


The direction WWE takes with Rousey will be interesting – her match at the Super Show-Down alongside the Bellas against the Riott Squad is obviously just filler, while we still await her match for Evolution.


An obvious candidate down the road would be a returning Nia Jax – as that feud was far from finished with at Money in the Bank.


Bliss’s charisma and ability on the mic, will make it easy for her transition into any potential story line WWE creative have in store.
