WWE is gearing up for Crown Jewel and they’re paying a ton to make the event happen. Then again, Saudi Arabia is also shelling out a ridiculous amount of money as well. This will only benefit SmackDown’s star power this week on FOX.
Brad Shepard reports that Cain Velasquez and Tyson Fury are both slated to be at SmackDown on FOX tonight. Brock Lesnar will be around next week as well.
According to a source in #WWE, Cain Velasquez and and Tyson Fury are both expected tonight for #SmackdownOnFox. Also, Brock Lesnar is expected for the go-home show in Kansas City.
In an update, Shepard later tweeted:
In an update, the same source noted Cain had his dates rearranged within the last few days. It sounds like he may not be at #SmackdownOnFox tonight – he is now expected at #RAW on the 21st.
Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez are both being promoted for the October 25th episode of Friday Night SmackDown. That will be yet another chance to hype their upcoming match in Saudi Arabia.
