  • WWE Stars John Cena, Daniel Bryan Not Going To Saudi Arabia Event

After some late changes, WWE Champion AJ Styles now takes on Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar battle again, with the victor taking home the vacant Universal Championship.

Hulk Hogan made his return to a WWE event after a three-year suspension to kick off the show in what was the first of a series of shocks throughout a show which had courted controversy before it had even started.

By all accounts, the wrestlers very visibly phoned in their night's work as WWE announcers referred to "Riyadh" rather than "Saudi Arabia" throughout.

- The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus) vs.

SmackDown Tag Team Title Match: The New Day vs. The event gets underway with the kickoff show at 11 a.m. ET; the main card begins at noon ET.

- Today's WWE Crown Jewel event saw SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bar retain their titles over The New Day, thanks to an assist from Big Show.

SmackDown First Round: Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy vs.

WWE fired Hogan and removed him from its Hall of Fame after audio surfaced of a racist rant of Hogan using vulgar language on a sex tape while talking about his daughter's boyfriend.

Shawn Michaels and Triple H (-150 favorites) vs.

-Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev for the U.S. Championship (Kickoff Show). It epitomized WWE's approach to dealing with anything controversial in the lead up to Crown Jewel, which many people, including US Senators, felt should be canceled or relocated.

Cena, who originally didn't need or have a qualifying match for the World Cup tournament, was simply replaced by Bobby Lashley with no explanation given or needed.

The WWE is hosting a major event in Saudi Arabia on Friday absent two of its biggest pro-wrestling stars.

The event will be live on Sony Ten 1, Sony Ten 1HD (both English) and Ten 3, Ten 3HD (both Hindi).
