The long rumored next WWE show in Saudi Arabia now has a name, date and main event.
On the heels of the controversial no contest finish at Hell in a Cell, Baron Corbin opened Monday Night Raw with some breaking news. After Roman Reigns came down to the ring to call out Brock Lesnar, the WWE Universal champion was instead welcomed by Braun Strowman.
Before Reigns and Strowman could come to blows, Corbin came out to provide a solution for everyone. At the newly named WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on Friday, Nov. 2, Reigns will defend his title versus Strowman and Lesnar in a triple threat match.
