With major matches like Roman Reigns vs. Logal Paul and Bianca Belair vs. Bayley. WWE’s second-to-last pay-per-view of the year could have a significant impact on both its short- and long-term prospects. One of the most significant halts on the way to WrestleMania 39 is WWE Crown Jewel 2022.
Flagship live events of the WWE Crown Jewel
The importance of WWE’s flagship live events will increase more than it has in recent memory. Because the company is apparently redesigning its PPV calendar for the following year. This will begin at the showdown this weekend in Saudi Arabia. Where an undisputed Universal Championship fights between Paul. The internet sensation, and Reigns, probably the hottest performer in all of professional wrestling, will set the tone for a new-look lineup of premium events.
With Triple H in charge, WWE’s programming has significantly improved over the past several months. With a crucial event that will build the groundwork for Survivor Series and beyond. WWE will be hoping to maintain this momentum. How ought the show to be scheduled? Let’s look at it.
Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar
Bobby Lashley vs. Brock Lesnar presents a difficult booking challenge. One could argue that neither guy should be losing this bout because Lesnar just made his long-awaited comeback. Lashley is one of WWE’s best-booked performers, and both behemoths are currently working as babyfaces.
This makes a contentious non-finish—that progresses to a rubber match—a possible choice in this situation. But if we’re choosing the lesser of two evils? Lashley would triumph in that case. He works full-time, and his 2022 Royal Rumble victory over Lesnar was marred by controversy and didn’t exactly give him the best impression. Over the past two years, Lashley has played such a significant role in Raw, and in many respects. He has filled the vacuum left by Lesnar’s frequent absences.
Lesnar’s next WWE appearance was supposed to take place at the scrapped Day 1 pay-per-view in January. This means that by the time he returns, perhaps around the Royal Rumble. A defeat to Lashley will have long ago been forgotten.
Bianca Belair is shocked by Bayley at WWE Crown Jewel
Despite all of their talent, something about Bayley’s Damage CTRL stable hasn’t quite clicked. With an unwise loss in the women’s tag championship tournament. Another one this week on Raw, and Bayley’s defeat of Belair at Clash at the Castle. It’s possible that the faction lacks credibility.
Due to her popularity and the way that WWE has billed her, she is practically unbeatable. But if Bayley loses to Belair, that might have long-term negative effects on Belair. She has held the women’s title for the majority of the last two years. And WWE does not want to get to the point where like with Roman Reigns or John Cena before her. She is pushed too hard as a face and it backfires on them.
Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey
As Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey are most likely to compete for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 39. Bayley is the only contender who has a chance to defeat Belair and win the title in Saudi Arabia.
Ending His PPV Losing Streak: Drew McIntyre
Drew McIntyre rarely loses matches, much less loses two straight pay-per-view matches. However, the former two-time WWE Champion has experienced just that, losing to Roman Reigns at Clash in the Castle and then Karrion Kross at Extreme Rules.
Naturally, both of those defeats had shoddy finishes, so McIntyre was shielded as usual. But since perception shapes reality, McIntyre’s status as a top star may suffer if he loses three straight PPV matchups. Although Kross’s gimmick might be appealing if programmed properly. He hasn’t really done much to stand out or establish himself as a main event-caliber figure. Despite the fact that Triple H is obviously a strong admirer of him.
McIntyre is a better fit for that position and needs the victory at WWE Crown Jewel if only to set up a rematch with Kross and regain some badly needed momentum.
Bray Wyatt’s Upcoming Step
Despite having a fair share of critics, Bray Wyatt’s return to the WWE has been a huge success. He has already established himself as a major draw for the business, creating astounding social media viewership numbers and dominating the company’s goods sales.
The evident attention Wyatt brings to WWE ought to put an end to any anti-Wyatt sentiment. But on the same token, WWE might have trouble booking him sooner rather than later. While there hasn’t been any concrete evidence to support the speculations of a prospective “Wyatt Six” stable up to this point. There hasn’t been any sign of a forthcoming Wyatt feud or match either.
Depending on your point of view, you might say that Wyatt’s current WWE run is just getting started. But pro wrestling fans aren’t exactly known for their patience. In other words, WWE has to give Wyatt’s character development beyond cryptic promos and spooky vignettes by providing him with a new antagonist or plot twist.
That ought to happen in Saudi Arabia, or WWE runs the risk of destroying a promising development before it even begins.
Logan Paul shines, but Roman Reigns prevails.
Reigns’ continuous storyline with Sami Zayn and The Bloodline, similar to Wyatt’s, has been a major draw for WWE. Even after more than two years, Reigns’ championship run as “The Head of the Table” is still the best thing happening in professional wrestling.
Although there is no reason to remove Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship anytime soon, his bout with Paul presents WWE with yet another scheduling conundrum. Although Paul may be receiving a WWE championship shot way too soon into his WWE tenure. It’s easy to understand why WWE would put Paul in this position in the first place given that he is a very well-known figure outside of the sports entertainment industry.
At WWE Crown Jewel, Reigns’ task is to make Paul, who has so far looked incredible in the ring, appear incredible once more and to successfully defend the WWE Championship. Reigns are definitely up to the assignment. And that’s the only conceivable result in Saudi Arabia barring one of the most spectacular swerves in pro wrestling history.
