WWE Crown Jewel Live Results: Everything That Happened in Saudi Arabia

WWE’s second Saudi Arabia show, Crown Jewel, is live! And there looks to be at least one new champion crowned.

Despite the controversy surrounding the show, the WWE refused to cancel an event where many of its superstars are looking to capture championships. The recently-vacated Universal Championship will have a new holder, while the U.S., SmackDown Tag Team and WWE Championships will be defended.

The World Cup tournament (to determine the best in the world) will run throughout Crown Jewel as eight competitors, including Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton duke it out. And, of course, there’s the match between DX and the Brothers of Destruction which marks Shawn Michaels’ return to the ring after his retirement eight years ago.

Will the landscape of the WWE change by the end of Crown Jewel? Here’s everything that happened at the show in Saudi Arabia.
