WWE had Alexa Bliss and Natalya travel to Saudi Arabia last time in hopes that they would let women perform at the event. That didn’t happen for the Super ShowDown, but it is going down at Crown Jewel.
It was revealed during the WWE Crown Jewel media event at 4:00 AM EST that Natalya vs Lacey Evans is now officially booked for Crown Jewel. This is a big deal for WWE as they conclude the second year in a ten year agreement with Saudi Arabia.
Lacey Evans commented on this big honor. She can’t wait to show her daughter and little girls all over the world what a lot of hard work can do accomplish.
I never thought I’d have the opportunity to do the things I’ve done with @WWE. Tomorrow I get to show my little girl that hard work can bring you to history-making heights. I’m ready for this. #WWECrownJewel
Odds are both Natalya and Lacey Evans will be wearing different ring attire for Crown Jewel. When Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks wrestled in Dubai, they had to cover their arms and legs as well.
It is a huge deal for WWE and now they will get to add another “first-ever” to their list of accomplishments. Lacey Evans is obviously very happy to be a part of history as well.
