WWE Crown Jewel will air this Friday at 12 pm eastern on the WWE Network and one of the top matches on the show will be the Universal Championship match between Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar.
Apparently, Vince McMahon wants to keep it as a Triple Threat Match so there have been talks about adding a third man to the match. PWInsider reports that there was a pitch made to add Drew McIntyre.
Any last minute changes to the show would have to be made by tonight on Raw and tomorrow night on Smackdown Live because the talent will be flying out on Wednesday.
WWE has yet to officially remove John Cena and Daniel Bryan from advertisements but the last word on Cena is that he is 100% out of the show. If WWE does not address Bryan’s status on Tuesday night then we should know more by Wednesday when the wrestlers start to fly out.
As you could imagine, there are several wrestlers that would rather not go to Saudi Arabia. The same applies for much of the production staff.
