BREAKING NEWS: WWE Removes Ticket Link for Crown Jewel

It’s looking more and more likely by the day that WWE will be pulling out of Saudi Arabia and cancelling Crown Jewel. They have removed the link for tickets for Crown Jewel as well as the link for the venue from wwe.com. Emergency backup plans call for WWE to move these matches to Survivor Series in case of a cancellation. There are still WWE World Cup qualifying matches advertised for Raw, and it’s unknown if that would be a separate event. Keep it here for updates.

 

UPDATE: Reached for comment, WWE says the Saudi Arabia show is still on as scheduled. A WWE spokesman said the event should be listen on wwe.com. While it does not have an entry on the “tickets and live events” page, it is still listed under shows. So for now, the show is on. Stay tuned!

Crown Jewel in Jeopardy?

This situation is a mess. If you haven’t heard, Turkish police are alleging that the Saudi government, possibly with the blessing of the Saudi prince, lured journalist Jamal Khashoggi to their consulate in Istanbul and murdered him. Khashoggi is a U.S. resident who lives in Virginia and writes for the Washington Post. He is also vocal critic of the Saudi government and of the prince. There’s been an outcry from citizens and politicians alike to stop doing business with the Saudis.  Trump’s response:

WWE Super Show-Down Review

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: THE BAR VS. THE NEW DAY (c)

Big E will sit this one out, a curious decision, but they must feel like Sheamus and Cesaro can both neutralize his power, so they want to double down on a speed advantage. Unfortunately for them, power is winning out in the early going. Impressive spot when Sheamus launched Woods in the air and Cesaro hit him with an uppercut.

WWE Super Show-Down Predictions

CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: BUDDY MURPHY VS. CEDRIC ALEXADER (c)

Alexander has been undefeated for over a year. He’s been running the cruiserweight division, and deservedly so, he’s terrific. You know what else would be terrific? Giving Buddy Murphy a championship win in his hometown. I love Cedric, and Murphy is a heel, but that would be a tremendous way to start the show. I think he’d have a great run as champion, but even if you only have him win it just to do it in front of the home crowd, you could always have Alexander win it back in Saudi Arabia

Survivor Series Rumor

I’m hearing that this year’s Survivor Series won’t focus on Raw vs. SmackDown, but instead Team Corbin vs. Team Angle for control of Raw. If I’m picking sides here, it’s likely a given that The Shield will be on Team Angle while McIntyre, Strowman, and Ziggler will be on Team Corbin. Venturing a guess as to who will round out the teams, I’ll say Bobby Lashley and a returning Jason Jordan for Team Angle while Kevin Owens and Elias fill out Team Corbin.

If we do in fact get Team Angle vs. Team Corbin, who are your guesses for who will be on each team?

REVIEW: In Your House III: Triple Header

REVIEW: In Your House III

Here we are, perhaps the nadir of the WWF as both a business and a creative enterprise, in the fall of 1995. Naturally, Vince McMahon’s main competition, WCW led by Eric Bischoff, had just started Monday Nitro, going head to head with Monday Night RAW and beginning the Monday Night Wars and the last great era of professional wrestling in the United States.

Hell in a Cell Ending

I thought the Hell in a Cell main event was a really good match. I thought it was total crap that Strowman and Reigns laid there for 5-10 minutes while everything happened around them.  I know you want the focus to be on the guys fighting on top of and falling off of the cell, but come on, have them do SOMETHING. Dan McQuade of Deadspin thinks there’s too much interference in these types of matches. What people really seem to be pissed about is the ending. I don’t put a lot of stock in what live crowds have to say anymore, but there’s a video going around of them chanting “this is bullshit” when the match was declared a no contest. So I want to know what people think, if a Hell in a Cell match should EVER be declared a no contest and if you’re cool with last night’s ending.
