US Championship Match Official For WWE Crown Jewel

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that Renee Young will join the announce team at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

WWE said on Monday Night Raw that wrestler Bobby Lashley - who was managed by now-President Donald Trump during his 2007 Wrestlemania match - will step in for the West Newbury, Massachusetts native at the event.

Still advertised as performing, Daniel Bryan was also rumored to be sitting out the event in protest.

Whether Cena asked to be removed due to moral objections or for purely pragmatic public image reasons, Cena is off the show and out a big payday.

While there has been no confirmation from the WWE, Cena, or Bryan that the two Superstars will not appear in Saudi Arabia, it does look certain they won't and while explanations for their absence haven't been forthcoming, it has led to speculation that the pair have refused to make the trip on the back of the recent controversy. I'm looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE, looking forward to WrestleMania - but yeah, we're moving forward at a rapid pace. "What an honor and a privilege it is to be allowed to be a part of an event like today".

Hogan was last at a WWE event in July when he apologized to the WWE locker room backstage at Extreme Rules, but he never appeared on-camera.

"If you wanna talk WWE, you're talking to the wrong McMahon", Linda told us.

It sounds like Vince was still determined to keep Crown Jewel in the Kingdom, even if they weren't able to host it this week as planned.

Just last week The Hulkster - real name Terry Bollea - hinted that he would be heading to Saudi Arabia and admitted he was so grateful to have been forgiven by the WWE Universe for his mistake so many years ago.

Turkish officials concluded that Saudi Arabian agents awaited Khashoggi and killed him inside the consulate, removing his head and fingers in the process.

Despite describing the incident as a heinous crime, the organisation announced that: "Similar to other US-based companies who plan to continue operations in Saudi Arabia, the Company has made a decision to uphold its contractual obligations to the General Sports Authority and stage the event".
