WWE announces Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia for Halloween


WWE's return to Saudi Arabia is set for Halloween.

WWE's Arabic website announced today that Crown Jewel 2019 will take place at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Thursday, October 31. Tickets will go on sale on Monday (September 30) at 6 p.m. local time.

Seth Rollins, Kofi Kingston, Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio, and NXT's Mansoor are advertised for Crown Jewel, along with Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair making special appearances.

The Undertaker also appeared in a video announcing the show.

With SmackDown moving to Friday nights on FOX, SmackDown will take place the day after Crown Jewel.

WWE's first Crown Jewel event was held in Riyadh last November, with WWE going ahead with the show despite the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Crown Jewel 2019 will be the fourth event in WWE's 10-year deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority.

Alexa Bliss and Natalya traveled to Saudi Arabia for Super ShowDown this June, but a match between them was not approved by the Saudi government.
