October 22, 2021

RIYADH — Mohammed Abdo Arena in BLVD RUH City hosted Thursday the first international wrestling matches for the stars of WWE Crown Jewel, which are part of the events of Riyadh Season 2021. An audience of 22,000 people was present, and all tickets were sold out.

Before the WWE Superstars started the fight, a giant screen showed their information and excerpts from the event they participated in in the morning under the slogan "Don't be a bully...Be a Star."

The crowd's cheers received the WWE stars as they entered the ring, amid professionalism in performance and organization, supported by interactive screens that allow visitors to watch the decisive parts accompanied by the music of the WWE Crown Jewel events and fireworks so that the audience can live the atmosphere of global fights.

In the main event of the WWE Crown Jewel, Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar and retained the WWE Universal Championship title. The Usos team defeated their competitors Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander from the Hurt Business team, retaining the SmackDown Tag Team title in the pre-show of WWE Crown Jewel.

The Saudi star Mansoor Al-Shehail defeated his former friend Mustafa Ali, which prompted the latter to attack Mansoor after the end of the fight, but the Saudi karate champion Tariq Hamdi, the silver medalist at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, saved Mansoor and celebrated in the ring with him.

These matches attracted the attention of the world to Riyadh Season. This was reflected in the audience who formed a diverse societal mix.

This is in addition to the guests who preferred to introduce themselves to the public by entering the event on Arabian camels, amid a remarkable welcome from the visitors, which integrated the Saudi culture and world stars in an international entertainment event held in the Kingdom. — SPA
