Rhodes vs Priest set for WWE Crown Jewel; top WWE star reportedly not expected to be in Saudi Arabia

Following recent championship victories, Judgment Day celebrated in the ring on the 10/23 edition of RAW before being interrupted by Cody Rhodes.

A back and forth between Rhodes and Damian Priest led to “Senor Money in the Bank” challenging the American Nightmare to a match at Crown Jewel.

Rhodes accepted, only for a brawl to break out, eventually leading to Priest attacking the leg of Rhodes with steel steps and a chair.

Despite the injury, Rhodes would make his way back to the ring in the closing moments of the show to save Jey Uso.

WWE Crown Jewel takes place Saturday, November 4 from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, airing live at 1:00 PM ET on Peacock in the United States and on the WWE Network internationally.

One star NOT set for Crown Jewel, however, is Brock Lesnar, according to a report from PWInsider Elite.

The report states that WWE opted not to include Lesnar this time around due to the feeling that the show had enough “attraction” type maches between the likes of John Cena and Logan Paul appearing and LA Knight challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
