Brock Lesnar won’t be working the November 4th WWE Crown Jewel premium live event in Saudi Arabia.

This is going to be the first Saudi PLE since the inaugural event in 2018 which Lesnar won’t work.

According to PWInsider, WWE Officials believe there’s enough star power at Crown Jewel, including John Cena (this will be his second Saudi PLE), so they are saving Lesnar’s return for a later date:

“WWE sources indicate that the company opted not to bring Lesnar into the plans for this event as with Roman Reigns vs. LA Knight, plus John Cena and Logan Paul, etc. all resulting in an immediate sellout of the venue, it was best to save Lesnar for a future event in the market.”

Lesnar was last seen on WWE programming at SummerSlam 2023, where he lost to Cody Rhodes and put him over after the match.

As we reported before, tickets for Crown Jewel sold out within hours and WWE is now planning to add more seats.

Below is the match-card as of this writing:

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

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

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

Fatal 5-Way Match For The Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Nia Jax vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Zoey Stark vs. Raquel Rodriguez
