WWE Crown Jewel Predictions

Image/Logo copyright of WWE / By Source (WP:NFCC#4), Fair use,

WWE Crown Jewel, a WWE Network event that will take place from Saudi Arabia. It will host the 1st Ever WWE World Cup Tournament, it will also mark the in-ring return of Shawn Michaels (aka HBK, who retired in 2010) and will also have the return of Hulk Hogan (who hasn't been on WWE Since 2015).

So with that being said, let’s get on with the predictions.

Like in previous predictions, I will be following these rules/guidelines: -

  • I will be predicting only the current matches that have been announced so far at the moment in time, with exception to the World Cup Tournament Semi-Final Matches & World Cup Tournament Final Match

  • The matches will be in Random Order as I don't know what order they will be presented to us.

  • If a match gets restarted due to some rule-breaking being found out and etc, then the restarted outcome will be considered the true cannon result and the previous one will be discarded due to the restart.

  • (c) - Refers to the Champion(s) heading into the match

(And STILL WWE Champion)

(And NEW WWE Universal Champion)


Tag Team Match

D-Generation X

(Triple H & Shawn Michaels)


The Brothers of Destruction

(The Undertaker & Kane)

Winners: D-Generation X


These are my predictions for WWE Crown Jewel.

This Event could have a few more additional twists and turns yet to be added to the event, as Drew McIntyre could get added to the WWE Universal Championship Match and make it a Triple Threat, however even if that does happen, I think the winner will still be the same.

I can see a shock happening in the World Cup, especially with that extra added match stipulation that was added for the final match, which makes me think and wonder would that be the perfect time for someone to have some time away from WWE or to be moving into possible Retirement. Who knows, we will have to wait and see, which will be due to Randy Orton wanting to get rid of a Hero that the WWE Universe likes by costing them the Finals.

There is also the WWE Return of Hulk Hogan and we will see if he is involved with any of the matches or most likely a promo spot, to hype the next event or maybe to even start the event in a uniquely special way.

Lastly, I don't see the feud between D-Generation X & The Brothers of Destruction ending anytime soon, due to the rumour that the Undertaker's Next WrestleMania Opponent will be Shawn Michaels, which in turn could lead to the Retirement of The Undertaker. However Undertaker Vs HBK 3 at WrestleMania is only rumour, so we will have to wait and see if the rumour becomes true or not.

So with that, please let me know in the comments section below if you agree or disagree, and what your predictions are for WWE Crown Jewel.
