A Saudi Olympic athlete is set to make an appearance at WWE Crown Jewel. Amid speculation that The Undertaker might also make an appearance, it appears as though the show will have some surprises. Click here for Ringside News’ exclusive on who took private jets to Saudi Araba.
A report on Fightful Select indicates that Olympic karateke Tareg Hamedi is being planned for some sort of appearance on the show. Hamedi was seen working in the ring this morning with Mustafa Ali, Charles Robinson, and fellow countryman Mansoor.
The Olympian’s involvement in this match makes sense. The hometown Hero, Mansoor, would receive a great rub through an affiliation with a local international hero.
Hamedi competed in the 2020 Summer Olympics. Tareg took home the Silver medal in the 75kg kumite competition.
WWE’s Crown Jewel takes place today from Saudi Arabia. The show contains a host of championship bouts as well as the finals of the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments.
The show begins at 12 eastern on Peacock in the US and WWE Network elsewhere. The main event features Roman Reigns defending the Universal title against Brock Lesnar.
