WWE Crown Jewel was one of the most epic and strongest WWE shows outside the home, and one of the super-excited and organized Saudi-Arabia-based WWE shows. The match card was rocking, and heavy, and it was directly linked to the ongoing segments inside the corporation’s main roasters: Raw, and SmackDown.

In addition, the presence of thrilled, and passionate wrestling fans in the arena who took the streets of Riyadh hours before the show to meet the WWE superstars, to interact with them, to greet them reflect the level of enjoyment and excitement the Saudi wrestling fans had.

Therefore, their cheering, chanting and screaming enriched the atmosphere of such an entertainment event. In addition, the Arab commenters, Joud & Faisal, did a great and exciting job, during the show to involve the TV audience in the vibe.

Here are the results of the whole matches, and the rating of every segment.
The Kick-Off Show (The Usos Defeated The Hurt Bussiness)
This show was added only a few hours before the Crown Jewel took place. It was somehow predicted to see the Usos around, especially, with the presence of the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.
The match was somehow good, and it could be considered as a light warming up for the fans.

The Final Chapter’s Hell in a Cell Match (Edge Defeated Seth Rollins)
In one of the strongest and most epic segments hosted on the Saudi land, this hell in a cell match was a classic-like, and vintage-mood competition that all fans looked forwards to having. It is wonderful to see that this historical end for such a strong, well-scripted feud segment ended perfectly in Saudi Arabia.

The National Hero Stands (Mansour Defeated Mostafa Ali)
It was a light, high-flying-like performance between the Saudi hero Mansour, and his former tag-team mate Mostafa Ali. This match was one of the most anticipated segments by Saudi fans. In addition, Mansour had a target of having a record of victories in his homeland.

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship (RKO Bro Defeated AJ Styles & Omos)
It was not the first time to see those two-conflicted tag teams in the ring for the title. Both teams entertained the fans with their entrances and pre-fight appearances. However, the match itself had nothing new to present to the fans. Overall, it was a good catch.

Queen of the Ring Identified (Zelina Vega Defeated Doudrop)
Unfortunately, it was the worst, and lowest-performed match on the whole card. The events of the match were somehow boring, and not interesting.

No Holds Barred Falls Count Anywhere (Goldberg Defeated Bobby Lashley)
Without a doubt, this match saw a rare, strong, powerful appearance by Goldberg in the PG era. Goldberg performed several of his long-past signature moves, and famous remarkable shots, in addition to doing several risky, thrilling moves.

King of the Ring Identified (Xavier Woods Defeated Finn Balor)
King of the Ring tournament final was one of those matches that sparked controversy between fans as half of the wrestling fans believed that Balor should be granted this win after his strange Extreme Rules’ rope cut scene, while the other half believed that Woods needed such a push.
So glad for Xavier Woods. He deserves it.

WWE Champion Secured the Title (Big E Defeated Drew McIntyre)
It was somehow expected that Big E would secure the title, but the performance was balanced and well scripted.

The Man Rises Alone (Becky Lynch Defeated Sasha Banks & Bianca Blair)
This match was considered the second high-ranked segment in the whole show. The three talented divas created a true war inside the ring. They crossed all the limits of speed, and entertainment.
Lynch proved that she deserves every title she held and every record she achieved.

The Unpredicted Main Event (Roman Reigns Defeated Brock Lesnar)
Described as the hardest match to predict its result, it was full of energy, challenge, fury, and rage.
The story begins with Lesnar’s shocking return to the WWE once against in Summerslam after Reigns’ long-awaited match against John Cena that ended with Cena’s lose.
— Lisa~TribalChief (@reignslight) October 21, 2021
Since then, the confrontation between both performers sparked over the WWE Universal Championship, later on, a match between them scheduled for WWE Crown Jewel.
Mostly of fans believed that this match would end in a spectacular, especially with predicting the Usos’ appearance in the match.
— Pro Wrestling Finesse (@ProWFinesse) October 21, 2021
In addition, the stand of Paul Hayman was somehow revealed for the first time as he attempted to help Lesnar.
All reports believed that Reigns’ victory would not be the end of the story, and more chapters will be written in the history of the two legends for the WWE Universal Championship.
Aside from the competitions, there were encouraging and entertaining scenes such as the appearance of cancer warriors and how they were honored and respected, and the segment of the Saudi national Olympic champion Tarek Hamdy.
Overall, this show could be classified as one of the best, and strongest Pay-Per-View events by the WWE in 2021 so far, and the best-selected match card among the shows hosted in Saudi Arabia.
