It was also announced Ricochet would be joining Rusev and Seth Rollins on Team Hogan.
However, the match announcements didn’t stop there. It was also announced Seth Rollins will be facing The Fiend at Crown Jewel for the Universal Championship.

The match was announced as a Fall Count Anywhere Match. Two things to note.
First, will they battle into the crowd in Saudi? One would think there could be potential consequences or awkward moments if the crowd isn’t expecting it.
Secondly, this is also a match that shouldn’t be able to end in a no-contest or disqualification. How will WWE book themselves out of this matchup if they don’t want to give Wyatt the title.
Maybe they are thinking it’s in Saudi and those fans won’t react the way US crowds do. Therefore, they think they can have Rollins will go over with no bad reaction.
