All 8 Confirmed Matches For WWE Crown Jewel 2023

8 months ago By Jhon Woug

As the calendar turns to November in the world of professional wrestling, WWE fans have their sights set on one of the most exciting events of the year, WWE Crown Jewel 2023. Taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Saturday, November 4, this event promises to be a blockbuster show with a loaded match card on deck. The 2023 edition of Crown Jewel is the 10th event in Saudi Arabia and is already generating significant buzz in the wrestling community.

The card for this year’s Crown Jewel is beginning to take shape, featuring a mix of intense rivalries and high-stakes championship matches. While the event already has eight confirmed matches, there’s always room for surprises and additions as WWE continues to build the excitement leading up to the big day.

Let’s dive into the confirmed matches and the stories behind them:

WWE Universal Championship Showdown: Roman Reigns (c) vs. LA Knight

The Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, faces LA Knight in what promises to be a marquee match. LA Knight’s journey to this bout has been nothing short of remarkable. His transformation from a questionable male modelling manager gimmick to a crowd favourite on the main roster has been impressive. Knight has formed an intriguing alliance with John Cena, and their recent victory over Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa at Fastlane only added to his momentum. An intense verbal altercation with Reigns on SmackDown has led to this championship clash.

World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Drew McIntyre

Seth Rollins, the World Heavyweight Champion, faces a determined challenger in Drew McIntyre. After Rollins’ gruelling victory over Shinsuke Nakamura at Fastlane, McIntyre made it clear that he wanted to take the title from Rollins. However, McIntyre also emphasised his desire for a fair fight, wanting Rollins at his best. Interestingly, Money in the Bank contract holder Damian Priest played a part in this rivalry, adding an extra layer of unpredictability to the match.

Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Nia Jax vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Zoey Stark

The Women’s World Champion, Rhea Ripley, is facing her biggest challenge yet in a “fatal five-way” match against Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Raquel Rodriguez, and Zoey Stark. All five women have been involved in a series of intense confrontations, each vying to prove themselves as “the baddest woman in WWE.” This multi-woman contest promises to be a physically powerful and chaotic battle for the women’s championship.

John Cena vs. Solo Sikoa

John Cena, a surefire Hall of Famer, is determined to secure a singles victory after more than 2,000 days without one. He shared his epiphany with fans on a recent episode of SmackDown, revealing his contemplation of retirement before deciding to prove himself once again. Cena issued an open challenge, which was answered by Solo Sikoa. While a brawl broke out before the match could officially begin, it was eventually booked for Crown Jewel. Cena’s pursuit of a singles win has become a compelling storyline.

WWE Women’s Championship: Iyo Sky (c) vs. Bianca Belair

Iyo Sky puts her WWE Women’s Championship on the line against Bianca Belair. Belair’s pursuit of the title gained momentum when she was granted a rematch against Sky. Sky cashed in her Money in the Bank briefcase on Belair shortly after Belair’s victory over Asuka at Summer Slam. This match will determine if Belair can regain the championship she once held.

United States Championship: Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Logan Paul

In a unique crossover, Logan Paul, a social media influencer, has challenged Rey Mysterio for the United States Championship. The challenge came after Paul’s victory in a boxing match against Dillon Danis. Mysterio welcomed the challenge, and the two competitors even shook hands. The big question surrounding this match is whether Logan Paul can achieve what many might consider an unlikely championship win.

Cody Rhodes vs. Damian Priest

Damian Priest, who still holds the Money in the Bank briefcase, faces off against Cody Rhodes. Priest’s attempts to cash in his contract have been thwarted by Rhea Ripley on multiple occasions. With no other immediate plans for Crown Jewel, a matchup against Cody Rhodes made sense, especially considering the history of clashes over the undisputed WWE tag team titles.

Sami Zayn vs. JD McDonagh (kick-off show)

On the kick-off show, Sami Zayn takes on JD McDonagh, a fringe member of the Judgement Day group. Zayn has been a persistent thorn in the side of Judgement Day, and this match provides him with an opportunity to further disrupt the group’s plans.

As Crown Jewel approaches, the anticipation among WWE fans continues to grow. The combination of high-stakes championship matches, intense rivalries, and the star power of John Cena and Roman Reigns promises to deliver an unforgettable event. With the WWE Universe eagerly awaiting the action, this event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is set to be a must-watch for wrestling enthusiasts around the world. Stay tuned for what is sure to be a historic night in the world of sports entertainment.
