Hulk Hogan Returns To WWE At Crown Jewel PPV In Saudi Arabia

Crown Jewel was Hogan's first appearance on a WWE event in over 3 years. After some late changes, WWE Champion AJ Styles now takes on Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar battle again, with the victor taking home the vacant Universal Championship.

None of these predicted outcomes are particularly surprising since Strowman is arguably the biggest star on Monday Night Raw right now and Styles vs Joe was booked at the last minute due to Daniel Bryan pulling out of the show. Eight superstars from RAW and Smackdown Live will battle it out for the World Cup glory in a knockout format.

That was after plunging 6 percent in the week since WWE confirmed it was staging the event despite the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents.

After weeks of controversy over the event, last-minute card changes and big announcements, Crown Jewel has arrived.

The Hall of Famer was announced as the host of the event and made his entrance to the familiar sounds of his original "Real American" theme music.

Elsewhere, The Bar are favourites to retain their SmackDown Tag Team titles against The New Day, and Rollins is the current favourite to win the WWE World Cup tournament.
