The following matches are advertised for the WWE Crown Jewel event that will be held on Friday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at King Saud University Stadium.
-Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman for the vacant WWE Universal Championship.

-Sheamus and Cesaro vs. New Day for the Smackdown Tag Titles.
-WWE World Cup tournament (Entrants: John Cena, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Rey Mysterio)
Powell’s POV: WWE has yet to announce brackets for the World Cup tournament. There will be a one-hour Kickoff Show beginning on Friday morning at 10CT/11ET. The actual event will start at 11CT/12ET and the WWE Network schedule page lists a four-hour window. I will be covering the event live as it airs on Friday.
