WWE Crown Jewel is set to take place this Thursday, October 21 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and the main event of the show will see Roman Reigns defend his WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar.
The story of the match has focused on Paul Heyman’s relationship with both the Tribal Chief and the Beast Incarnate, with Lesnar insinuating that he and Heyman are conspiring together behind the champion’s back.
Heyman himself shared a video hyping up the match to his Instagram account earlier today, where he made quite the intriguing proclamation regarding the match,
Heyman stated that he would be walking down the isle with the reigning Universal Champion at the start of the night, and at the end of the night he would be leaving with the Universal Champion. He said:
EXCLUSIVE! SPOILER FOR @WWE #CROWNJEWEL!@romanreigns vs BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROCK LESNAR … This Thursday – LIVE on @peacocktv and @wwenetwork I hate to spoil the ending of what is the biggest box office match of 2021, but … Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is @paulheyman, and I will be walking down the aisle at #CrownJewel with the reigning defending undisputed #WWE #UniversalHeavyweightChampion … and I assure you, I will be leaving #CrownJewel with the #WWE #UniversalHeavyweightChampion!
Heyman not naming who the champion he would be leaving with adds an extra bit of intrigue to the match this Thursday, as the possibility of Heyman betraying his tribal chief, and ours, has now been planted in the minds of the fans.
WWE Crown Jewel will take place at a special start time of 12pm EST/5pm BST on Thursday, October 21 from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.
