Despite pressure from politicians and considerable backlash from fans in the wake of journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder inside a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey, WWE has made a decision to push forward with the event - which will be the second pay-per-view staged in Saudi Arabia this year. Cena was written out of the event on last night's Raw, being replaced in the World Cup tournament by Bobby Lashley.

Still advertised as performing, Daniel Bryan was also rumored to be sitting out the event in protest.

"WWE has operated in the Middle East for almost 20 years and has developed a sizable and dedicated fan base".

WWE's working relationship with Saudi Arabia has officially survived the torrent of justified criticism for a human rights violation not just beyond the concerns raised earlier this year, but beyond the pale entirely.

Hector Bellerin had to be subbed off on Sunday, and it appears that Granit Xhaka may be asked to deputize at left-back once again. Arsenal , who saw their 12-game winning run end at Crystal Palace last weekend, host Blackpool at the Emirates.

Despite a worldwide outcry over the killing - and questions about the Saudi government's involvement - WWE went ahead and listed stars to appear at Friday's event in Riyadh. I want to send a genuine thank you to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia ... for its unmatched hospitality that extends far beyond this evening. However, WWE.com's official preview of tonight's SmackDown states that the pair are scheduled to have a confrontation - one which many are assuming will write Bryan out of Crown Jewel one way or another.

No female wrestlers are allowed to participate at the Saudi event. "Full year 2018 guidance is predicated on the staging of the Riyadh event as scheduled".

Other matches on the card include Brock Lesnar vs Braun Strowman for the vacant Universal Title, AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship and The New Day vs The Bar for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship. I'm looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE, looking forward to WrestleMania - but yeah, we're moving forward at a rapid pace.

Why is "Crown Jewel" so controversial?
