Women will’steal the show’ at WWE Crown Jewel, according to Becky Lynch.
WWE returns to Saudi Arabia next week at Crown Jewel, with a major bout for the SmackDown Women’s title certain to wow fans, according to champion Becky Lynch.
WWE’s Crown Jewel mega-event is set to take place in Saudi Arabia next week, with Becky Lynch predicting that the company’s women will’steal the show.’
The 21st of October will see the latest in a string of WWE blockbusters in Saudi Arabia, with the event taking place at Mohammed Abdu Arena in Riyadh.
The company has put together one of the strongest-looking cards of the year for the night, with Brock Lesnar scheduled to battle Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship, and the WWE title on the line as Big E defends against Drew McIntyre of the United Kingdom in his first genuine test.
Goldberg will also be in attendance when the former WCW great takes against Bobby Lashley, as well as the King of the Ring and Queen of the Crown tournament finals.
The showdown for the SmackDown women’s championship, however, is just as noteworthy, as champion Lynch defends her title against former champions Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks in a triple-threat match.
The remarkable trio has been at odds on-screen for a few weeks and will eventually face off, with Lynch convinced that the match will be memorable.
“First and foremost, fans should expect me to come out there as the Smackdown Women’s Champion,” she stated.
“On top of that, they can look forward to a barnstormer of a match.”
“You know you’re going to be seeing something amazing when you get me, Sasha Banks, and Bianca Belair – three of the best in the industry regardless of gender – and there’s no doubt that match will steal the show.”
The importance of being able to perform as women on such a stage is not lost on those who are involved in the fight.
The Greatest Royal Rumble was the first large broadcast show under the Saudi brand in 2018, and since then, spectaculars have been conducted on a regular basis.
Women couldn’t compete three years ago, with Triple H stating at the time, “While, for now, women aren’t competing in the event, we have had discussions about it, and we believe and hope that, in the next few years, they will be.” In Saudi Arabia, that is a big cultural shift.” With women’s matches, huge strides have been made since then.
