WWE will be bringing another show to Saudi Arabia on October 31st, but they aren’t booking everyone.
The show is already loaded with star power just on guest names like Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez alone. That being said, WWE isn’t having a few high profile names back in spite of using their images for promotion. Goldberg isn’t showing up for another huge payday, but he’s not alone.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that The Undertaker is not slated to be at Crown Jewel. This is especially interesting considering the fact that The Undertaker was just in Saudi Arabia where he took part in a big parade.
At this point, there is no definitive word on why The Undertaker isn’t being used. The fact that they already have a big name from boxing and recently signed Cain Velasquez coming could mean that they will save another Taker appearance for later.
Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Daniel Bryan also won’t be going to the event. Zayn isn’t invited due to the fact that he’s Syrian. Owens and Bryan aren’t going for moral reasons. It’s unclear on whether Aleister Black’s tattoos are still an issue.
