- AJ Styles holds off Samoa Joe to remain WWE champion.

Eric Sherman, Impact Wrestling's former chief strategy officer, nonetheless applauded WWE's retaining 65-year-old Hogan as a replacement for Cena and Bryan.

As we previously reported, Hulk is the host of Crown Jewel and the event began with "Real American" blaring over the speaker as the re-instated Hall of Famer made his entrance.

However, The Champ was ultimately replaced by his WWE Super Show-Down partner Bobby Lashley.

Following WWE's successful debut Greatest Royal Rumble show in Saudi Arabia last April, Crown Jewel is also featuring many of WWE's biggest stars, including the return of Shawn Michaels after eight years away from the ring.

Roman Reigns was scheduled to defend his WWE Universal title at the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh but he relinquished the title to battle his returning leukaemia.




Elsewhere, The Bar are favourites to retain their SmackDown Tag Team titles against The New Day, and Rollins is the current favourite to win the WWE World Cup tournament.

Triple H made an official announcement of the match on the first RAW after the WWE Super Show-Down.

-Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev for the U.S. Championship (Kickoff Show). Smackdown, on the other hand, will be represented by Jeff Hardy, Randy Orton, The Miz and Rey Mysterio.

The 41-year-old is biding his time in WWE as he serves a doping ban from the UFC, which ends in January 2019.

Where is WWE Crown Jewel taking place? I will be covering the event live as it airs on Friday. In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, whether intentional or not, Hogan openly admitted that he was traveling with the company to Saudi Arabia, thus all but confirming his Crown Jewel status.
