WWE Crown Jewel live results and analysis


For the first time since late February 2020, the WWE returns to Saudi Arabia for the third edition of its Crown Jewel supershow.

Three world titles will be on the line Wednesday in Riyadh. In a battle of Paul Heyman clients, Roman Reigns defends the Universal championship against the returning Brock Lesnar. Big E makes his first major defense of the WWE championship against Drew McIntyre. And in a first of its kind match, Becky Lynch defends her SmackDown women’s championship against Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks.

There’s also a No Holds Barred match between Goldberg and Bobby Lashley, while Edge and Seth Rollins square off inside Hell in a Cell. The finals of two tournaments will also crown champions as Xavier Woods and Finn Balor battle for the King of the Ring title, and Doudrop and Zelina Vega vie for the first ever Queen’s Crown.

Follow along throughout the event for live, match by match updates.


Match in progress: Mansoor vs. Mustafa Ali


Results:

Hell in a Cell match: Edge def. Seth Rollins

Recap to come.


The Usos def. The Hurt Business

With the newly reformed Hurt Business staying on Raw, and The Usos remaining on SmackDown, this non-title match carried little in the way of stakes. It wasn’t surprising to see The Usos, the SmackDown tag team champions, win. Hopefully Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin will be able to rebuild some momentum as part of a reunited unit beyond being a storytelling device.

What’s next: In the immediate future, Benjamin and Alexander could very well play a role in the No Holds Barred match between Bobby Lashley and Goldberg. The Usos will almost certainly factor into the Universal championship match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, if history is any indication.
