Seth Rollins officially removed from Team Hogan at WWE Crown Jewel


WWE has officially confirmed a change to the Team Hogan vs. Team Flair match at Crown Jewel.

In a video that WWE uploaded today, it was announced that Seth Rollins will no longer be part of the Team Hogan vs. Team Flair five-on-five tag match. Dave Meltzer reported earlier this week that Rollins would be removed from the bout.

Rollins was originally announced as the captain for Hogan's team, but Rollins will instead be wrestling in a different match at the show. As was announced on Monday's Raw, Rollins will defend his Universal Championship against The Fiend in a falls count anywhere match at Crown Jewel.

Rusev, Ricochet, and three partners will be on Team Hogan, while Randy Orton, Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, and a partner will be on Team Flair. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair are the coaches of the teams and won't be wrestling in the match.

Crown Jewel is taking place at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Thursday, October 31. It will air live on the WWE Network, with the main card starting at 1 p.m. Eastern time.
