Now that WWE Super Show-Down is in the books, there’s not much rest for the company’s roster as Evolution is now three weeks away, immediately followed by Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia just five days later.
Originally, the plans for Crown Jewel were for the event to take place at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh which seats just over 68,000. While the event will remain in Riyadh, WWE’s announcement of the Daniel Bryan vs. AJ Styles match for the WWE Championship has revealed that Crown Jewel has been moved t King Saud University Stadium, a smaller venue, that seats around 25,000. At this time, it’s not known why there was a venue change:
