WWE is heading back to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel on October 31, 2019. Yes, that’s Halloween night.
Surprisingly, it appears two of wrestling’s most well know legends will be appearing at the show. According to PWInsider, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair are most likely going to be involved in the show.
Even though it’s Halloween, this doesn’t seem to be a trick. Some would argue, it won’t be a treat either.

It’s been reported the Saudi Prince loves old school wrestling and getting Hogan and Flair to be on the show would probably be something he would love. Given their age and health, one would have to assume this will only be a promo segment.
However, it’s possible they could be in someone’s corner for the night. Whatever the case may be, they won’t be the only major stars on the show.
Given the Undertaker is the one who made the announcement and the fact he’s appeared on most of the Saudi shows, he will be on the show.
Also announced are Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Kofi Kingston, AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, Big E, Xavier Woods, Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio and Mansoor.
While no official announcement has been made, it seems like a no brainer this will be broadcast on the WWE Network.
Halloween falls on a Thursday night. Given Smackdown will still be fairly new to FOX, it will be interesting to see how WWE handles getting Smackdown talent back in time for the Friday Night show.
