Roman Reigns and Logan Paul touch down in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, November 5th.

WWE’s Crown Jewel events are known for recruiting legends and outsiders for rare appearances, for better or worse. Shawn Michaels, Triple H, The Undertaker, Goldberg, Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez have all appeared on the show in the past. The 2022 edition takes a more measured, story-driven approach but features Reigns defending his world title against social media superstar Paul. The main event centers around Paul’s desire to put together his exhibition boxing match against Floyd Mayweather and the possibility that he can get one lucky shot at Reigns. Paul made a good impression in performances at WrestleMania 38 and SummerSlam, but few expected him to get a main event title so soon.

Also on the card is a real recreation of Godzilla vs. Kong. Two of WWE’s biggest superstars, Braun Strowman and Omos, will test their ring durability when they exchange blows on Saturday. Other notable matches include Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Bayley in a Last Woman Standing match, and Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross in a steel cage.

Check out the confirmed and predicted matches below.

2022 WWE Crown Jewel match

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship – Roman Reigns (c) vs. Logan Paul: Paul made his first appearance since SummerSlam on an episode of SmackDown in September. Paul set his sights on the top and challenged Reigns. WWE held a press conference in Las Vegas on September 17 that formally set the stage for the Crown Jewel main event. Paul and The Bloodline have repeatedly traded barbs on episodes of SmackDown since.

The OC (AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows) Vs. Judgment Day (Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Dominick Mysterio): Balor had spent weeks trying to recruit his old friend, Styles to Judgment Day. The ragtag group gave Styles an ultimatum on Raw: you’re either with them or against them. Styles appeared and paid homage to Balor. It was great to welcome Anderson and Gallows back to the fold. The two groups, each featuring Bullet Club alumni, will meet in a six-man tag team match.

Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley: There is unfinished business between Lesnar and Lashley. The two clashed at the 2022 Royal Rumble in a WWE Championship match that left something to be desired. Lashley came out to start his second reign as WWE Champion. Lesnar has not forgotten the taste of defeat. The former UFC champion made an unexpected return to Raw and melted Lashley. The result of the attack left Lashley vulnerable in his defense of the United States championship that same night. Seth Rollins took the title from Lashley and avoided a backlash while Lashley focused on Lesnar.

Braun Strowman vs. Omos: Just like Thanos vs. Galactus, there’s only room for one destroyer in the WWE universe. Omos, flanked by his manager MVP, made it clear that Strowman was a target. Strowman officially challenged Omos on the October 21 episode of SmackDown. Omos seems to have the upper hand, pushing Strowman out of the ring in the first physical meeting between the two.

Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross (steel cage match): McIntyre is on the warpath. Kross and Scarlett have been attacking McIntyre since both returned to WWE in August. McIntyre was about to defeat Kross in a strap match at Extreme Rules before Scarlett blasted a mace in McIntyre’s eyes. Tensions erupted over the next week on SmackDown after McIntyre knocked out Kross with a car door. This all leads to a steel cage match at Crown Jewel who intends to cut Kross from his lifeline Scarlett.

Undisputed Tag Team Championship – The Usos (c) vs. Brawling Brutes (Butch and Ridge Holland): The Bloodline started their feud with the Brawling Brutes into overdrive on the October 21 episode of SmackDown. After burying Butch and Holland under an announcer’s table, the Bloodline brutally attacked Sheamus’ left arm with two steel chairs. The severity of the attack should theoretically write Sheamus off TV and inspire Butch and Holland with inspiration. This should be a fun follow-up to their strong tag team title match on the September 23 episode of SmackDown.

Raw Women’s Championship – Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley (Last Man Standing match): WWE announced a Raw women’s championship match between Bayley and Belair The retention comes after Bayley defeated Belair in a non-title match on the October 24 episode of Monday Night Raw. Belair was expected to beat Bayley before Nikki Cross entered and attacked everyone, opening the door for Bayley to take advantage.

Women’s Tag Team Championship – Asuka & Alexa Bliss (c) vs CTRL Damage: Asuka and Bliss defeated Dakota Kai and IYO SKY on Raw to win the titles, now the former champions get their rematch at Crown Jewel. The two sides have had several runs in the past with Asuka and Bliss supporting Bianca Belair and Damage CTRL supporting their leader, Bayley.
