The WWE Crown Jewel 2019 pay-per-view will take place on October 31st at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 6 matches have been announced for the event with some big names like Cain Velasquez and Tyson Fury scheduled to compete at the event.
The first match that was announced for the event was Team Hogan vs. Team Flair. Team Hogan consists of Roman Reigns (who’s the team captain), Ricochet, Rusev, Shorty G and Ali. Team Flair will be led by Randy Orton, who will join forces with King Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and one other superstar.
Ric Flair will announce the last member of his team this week on RAW. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair are both scheduled to appear on Friday Night SmackDown this week and on next week’s RAW.
In this article, let’s take a look at 3 wrestlers who could be the final member of Team Flair.
Elias has been out of action due to an ankle injury for more than a month now. The Drifter was pulled from the semi-final of the King Of The Ring Tournament against Chad Gable and hasn’t been seen on WWE programming since then. The injury was minor and he can return anytime now.
This past Monday on the Draft edition of RAW, Elias was drafted to SmackDown in round 6. Things will pretty much be the same for Elias since he’s been working on the blue brand since WrestleMania 35.

Elias being a part of the Draft may be a hint that he has healed up and can return anytime now. With the Crown Jewel pay-per-view coming up in Saudi Arabia this month, WWE may bring back Elias. He has been a prominent part of storylines there.
WWE is always unpredictable when it comes to The Drifter. He could make a surprise return with The Nature Boy bringing him out as the last member of Team Flair.
