If there wasn’t enough reason to be scared of October 31st…
PWInsider have had it confirmed to them that WWE will be performing in the King Saud University Stadium on October 31st.
With Halloween falling on a Thursday, one would imagine that a very Raw heavy crew will be heading to Saudi Arabia this year with SmackDown Live having moved to Fox on Friday nights by that point.
WWE will then embark on a tour of the United Kingdom that will see SmackDown and Raw take place on the same night on Friday, November 8 in Manchester. Both shows will be taped (Friday’s SmackDown and the following Monday’s Raw).
This will be the second Crown Jewel event in WWE’s history, with the event last year being infamous for the inexplicable result of Shane McMahon inserting himself into the ‘WWE World Cup’ tournament and becoming ‘The Best in The World’ as well as the laughably bad encounter between D-Generation X and The Brothers of Destruction.
This will be the fourth major event held in Saudi Arabia since WWE signed their deal with the kingdom.
