Powell's POV: WWE added the U.S. Championship match today.

WWE Crown Jewel, second pay-per-view event in Saudi Arabia this year, has earned more controversy than excitement for the matches on offer.

Presumably, this heel turn will play into the Raw vs. Smackdown storyline leading into Survivor Series. John Cena and Daniel Bryan have been pulled from the lineup, and Hulk Hogan is now advertised and will reportedly host the show.

There will also be an eight-man tournament branded the "World Cup" at the controversial event which will feature no women.

"WWE has such a valuable relationship with Saudi Arabia it needs to bring big guns to the event", Sherman told The Post. There will be a one-hour Kickoff Show beginning on Friday morning at 10CT/11ET.

-Triple H and Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker and Kane. The kickoff show, for the United States Championship, will start at 8:30 PM. When The Miz was injured in the final, McMahon refused a forfeit and took his place, outclassing Dolph Ziggler.

According to Sky Bet, via NoDQ, Strowman is the favourite to beat Lesnar for the Universal Championship, Styles is the favourite to retain his WWE title vs Joe, and D-Generation X are the favourites in their match against The Brothers of Destruction.

The live streaming of WWE Crown Jewel will be available on Sony Liv app and WWE app.
