Shane McMahon won the WWE World Cup after introducing himself as a late replacement for the injured Miz.

According to the report, WWE apparently wanted to keep Hogan's return low-key, which is the reason that the location was picked to be in Saudi Arabia. There was plenty of backlash to his appearance in the replies to WWE's tweet of his entrance at Crown Jewel.

By all accounts, the wrestlers very visibly phoned in their night's work as WWE announcers referred to "Riyadh" rather than "Saudi Arabia" throughout.

Sporting News will provide live bell-to-bell coverage of WWE Crown Jewel on Friday beginning at 11 a.m. ET.

Elsewhere, The Bar are favourites to retain their SmackDown Tag Team titles against The New Day, and Rollins is the current favourite to win the WWE World Cup tournament.

Crown Jewel's host nation has attracted a global outcry following the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Which channel will live telecast WWE Crown Jewel?


Fans can watch it on the WWE Network for £9.99 per month with a free month trial if you subscribe immediately.

"Similar to other US -based companies who plan to continue operations in Saudi Arabia", the WWE said, "the Company has chose to uphold its contractual obligations to the General Sports Authority and stage the event".

It means canceling would hurt the company's bottom line. That 10-year deal, which is part of the Saudis' "Vision 2030" project, reportedly will net the WWE more than $400 million.

This the second show in Saudi Arabi this year after the "Greatest Royal Rumble" on April 27.

"We're moving forward at a rapid pace", he said.

So naturally, the words Saudi Arabia again were not used, by Hulk Hogan or by anyone else at Crown Jewel.
