Crown Jewel 2019 is an upcoming professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brands. It will take place on October 31, 2019 at King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It will be the 4th event under the WWE in Saudi Arabia under their 10 year agreement, and the 2nd in the Crown Jewel chronology.

Production

Background

In early 2018, the WWE began a 10-year strategic multiplatform partnership with the General Sports Authority in support of Saudi Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia's social and economic reform program. The first event under this new partnership, the Greatest Royal Rumble, was held at the King Abdullah Sports City's King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah on April 27. In September, a followup titled Crown Jewel was announced to be held on November 2.

On September 27, it was announced that Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker would be making appearances at the event.

Storylines

The show will include matches resulting from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portray heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results are predetermined by WWE's writers on the Raw and SmackDown brands, while storylines are produced on WWE's weekly television shows, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live.

On the September 30 episode of Raw, WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair were guests on "Miz TV". After the two teased a match between each other, The Miz announced that at Crown Jewel, there would be a 5-on-5 tag team match between Team Hogan and Team Flair, with Hogan and Flair as the respective coaches. Universal Champion Seth Rollins and Randy Orton were selected as the captains of Team Hogan and Team Flair, respectively. Later, Rusev joined Team Hogan while King Corbin joined Team Flair.
