Backstage News On WWE Holding World Cup Tournament At Crown Jewel


The WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view event takes place on November 2nd, 2018 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the King Saud University Stadium and will air on the WWE Network. For the those who are wondering why WWE is holding the World Cup tournament at this show is due to the conflict between Qatar and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Dave Meltzer noted on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that the tournament being held at this show all comes down to the Saudis being upset over Qatar landing the 2022 FIFA World Cup of soccer as they tried to win the bid but was unsuccessful. Thus, they asked WWE to hold their own World Cup of wrestling at Crown Jewel.
