After being forced to take 2020 off because of the COVID pandemic, the WWE returns to Saudi Arabia for the 2021 edition of Crown Jewel.
The truly stacked card that takes place at the Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard in Riyadh is headlined by Roman Reigns defending his WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar while WWE Champion Big E will defend against Drew McIntyre. Becky Lynch will defend her SmackDown women’s championship in a triple threat match against Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair.

And, of course, Mansoor will aim to keep his undefeated streak in Saudi Arabia intact when he faces former tag team partner Mustafa Ali.
