Renee Young will reportedly be heading to WWE Crown Jewel on Friday.
Pro Wrestling Sheet reported this afternoon that Renee Young will be allowed to go to Saudi Arabia this Friday for WWE’s Crown Jewel event. Dave Meltzer has also confirmed Young will be heading to the event. Pro Wrestling Sheet’s report says that this process started back in September when Young joined the Raw commentary team on a permanent basis. WWE has yet to announce the broadcast team for the event.
Women were not allowed to compete or be part of the broadcast team at the Greatest Royal Rumble back in April. There was controversy after the event where the Saudi General Sports Authority, which oversaw the event, apologized for having a commercial featuring a number of female WWE talent wearing their ring gear, which they considered '"indecent".
WWE Crown Jewel will air this Friday on the WWE Network. It will air live at the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh with the main card starting at noon ET.
