• BREAKING: WWE Announces Another World Cup
WWE announced the following two WWE Crown Jewel 2019 matches today:
The largest Tag Team Turmoil Match in history to determine World Cup winner and crown the Best Tag Team in the World

Hometown Superstar Mansoor returns to Riyadh against Cesaro
“Mansoor made history the last time he competed in his home country, and it came at Cesaro’s expense.
Cesaro will try to stop Mansoor from further elevating his rising star when the two meet in one-on-one action in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Oct. 31.
Mansoor shocked the world with his win in the first-ever 50-Man Battle Royal at WWE Super ShowDown in June. En route to that victory was an elimination of Cesaro with Mansoor sending The Swiss Cyborg to the outside with a scintillating dropkick.
Moments later, Mansoor last eliminated Elias to elicit a raucous reaction. Mansoor found his way into the crowd, celebrating his massive triumph with his fellow countrymen, and an emotional speech followed in the ring shortly after.
Now, Mansoor and Cesaro square off once more, but in much different circumstances. Will Mansoor find a way to overcome the odds yet again?
