Why John Cena Can Be At WWE Crown Jewel 2023 In Saudi Arabia

Why John Cena Can Be At WWE Crown Jewel 2023 In Saudi Arabia WWE

An update has emerged on an upcoming John Cena WWE appearance, with the 16-time world champion advertised for Crown Jewel 2023.

In a clip released by Riyadh Season to promote a variety of upcoming events, not only was WWE Crown Jewel promoted, it was specifically mentioned that Cena will be at the show.

This raised some eyebrows, after Cena had previously pulled out of the Crown Jewel 2018 event and hadn’t worked a Saudi Arabia show since then.

In a Wrestling Observer Daily Update, Dave Meltzer noted that Cena working in Saudi Arabia is not an issue anymore, as more people are now doing business in Saudi Arabia.

Meltzer noted that as far as he’s aware, nobody on the WWE roster is banned from going, or refusing to go to Saudi Arabia:

 “In Saudi Arabia they are announcing John Cena for the 11/4 show.

“Cena had pulled out of the last WWE show in Saudi Arabia he had been booked on, but it’s no longer an issue that could have negative effects on his career since everyone is back doing business with the country now.

“Basically there is nobody left on the roster as far as we know that is either refusing to go or banned from going.”

The only Saudi show Cena has worked was the Greatest Royal Rumble 2018 show, the first event under WWE’s deal with Saudi Arabia.

Roman Reigns is reportedly set to compete at the November 4 Crown Jewel show.

The WWE Undisputed Universal Champion has been announced for another WWE show, which you can read more about right here.
