WWE Crown Jewel is set to take place in Saudi Arabia on November 5th. The status of the Premium Live Event is under doubt due to Iran possibly planning an attack on Saudi Arabia.
Brian Alvarez spoke about this subject on Wrestling Observer Live, and he said that the show is going on as planned. Still, plenty of people are nervous about actually going.
“There was a lot of trepidation and normally the people going on the trip are trepidatious normally going in, but now you have this on top of everything else, so … it appears that the show must go on, and hopefully everything turns out all right.”
