• Saudi Arabia Fans Upset Over WWE Pulling The Undertaker From Crown Jewel 2019
Bad news for Undertaker fans – The Deadman won’t be in action on October 31st at WWE Crown Jewel 2019 PPV in Saudi Arabia.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE doesn’t want to use The Undertaker for this upcoming event as they were able to secure Tyson Fury, who’s a big star in Boxing. Also, the event will feature Cain Velasquez’s first WWE match, which will be a highly-anticipated rematch against Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship.
WWE feels they have enough star power at Crown Jewel 2019 and can save The Undertaker for future events.
While The Undertaker won’t have a match at WWE Crown Jewel 2019, he’s currently in Saudi Arabia for the Riyadh Season (tap here to know more).
A popular Arabian Twitter account, Wrestling Club, noted that Saudi Arabia fans have started a hashtag “#WeWantUndertakerInRiyadh” to persuade Turki Al-Sheikh to bring The Undertaker to WWE Crown Jewel 2019.
