• BREAKING: WWE Officially Confirms WWE Crown Jewel PPV’s Status
As we noted earlier, WWE was set to reveal the final decision regarding next week’s WWE Crown Jewel PPV in today’s WWE’s 3rd quarter earnings call, as reported by Brad Shepard.
Update on #WWECrownJewel: I spoke to a source in #WWE today who indicated that tomorrow’s WWE 3rd quarter 2018 results call will very likely contain a final answer regarding any changes or details to the show.

WWE has revealed that WWE Crown Jewel will still take place in Saudi Arabia on November 2 as originally announced and gave the following reasoning regarding sticking with their decision to do business with Saudi Arabia:
“WWE has operated in the Middle East for nearly 20 years and has developed a sizable and dedicated fan base. Considering the heinous crime committed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the Company faced a very difficult decision as it related to its event scheduled for November 2 in Riyadh.
Similar to other US-based companies who plan to continue operations in Saudi Arabia, the Company has decided to uphold its contractual obligations to the General Sports Authority and stage the event. Full year 2018 guidance is predicated on the staging of the Riyadh event as scheduled.”
