Crown Jewel is tomorrow, November 5 in Saudi Arabia. Today, WWE held a press conference as Michael Cole kicked off the broadcast of the show, which will air at 12 p.m. ET. Stephanie McMahon, the co-CEO of WWE, and Triple H, the CCO, then welcomed everyone.
Asuka, Alexa Bliss, Damage CTRL, and Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair arrived first at the press conference. Belair announced she would retain the Raw Women’s Championship before her Last Woman Standing match against Bayley.
In response, Bayley emphasized to Belair and everyone else that she had previously successfully defended a championship in Saudi Arabia.
The new tag champs declared they would stay champions and that Damage CTRL wasn’t prepared for them after the fans chanted for Bliss and Asuka. In response, Dakota Kai emphasized that the Damage CTRL side plates are still attached to the tag team gold. Bayley will win the Raw Women’s Championship, says Kai, and they will receive their gold back. IYO SKY further stated that she would like to reclaim her, er, our title.
