Rumors going around are saying that a new venue has been chosen for Crown Jewel, ten days after saying the event will not go ahead as planned. Sheesh cutting it close. The event takes place next week and tickets are still not on sale amidst controversy surrounding WWE venturing to Saudi Arabia. WWE Crown Jewel was originally scheduled for November 2nd in Saudi Arabia, after the success of April's Greatest Royal Rumble. However, due to the controversy surrounding the disappearance and later the death of Jamal Khashoggi, there have been calls for WWE to cancel the show and gut ties with Saudi Arabia. If these rumors are true then they did just that. Word is a new venue has been chosen for Crown Jewel, ten days after they reported that the original event will not go ahead as planned. The report says that the event is likely to take place in Albany, New York. So with very little time left, still no official announcement and no ticket links yet. I'm sure that this is going to be a packed house. Who wouldn't want to Se US vs US 4 fucking times for a "world cup" or 4 men who should have retired like 5 years ago in a tag team match. End of an Era (for good, the last time, for realzies this time) and Shawn Michaels comes out of retirement to wrestle in feint of 900 people.
Let's just hope for best. Maybe none of this is true. I wouldn't be surprised to find out there still going to go there for that 6 billion dollar pay day.
