Renee Young Joining WWE Crown Jewel Announce Team

Hogan was immediately scrubbed from WWE's website and television programming in the wake of the scandal, but the company has gradually eased its restrictions on Hogan over the years.

The report claims that Young is set to travel to Saudi Arabia as part of the show, and that WWE had a view to this development in September, around the time she was historically made the first full-time female announcer on Monday Night Raw.

"Crown Jewel" is the second event this year staged by WWE in Saudi Arabia as part of its partnership with a nation with a history of human rights abuses.

Cena's decision has come amid the ongoing investigation into the death of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi on October 2, 2018, at the Saudi consulate in Turkey. According to WWE he was later removed due to a snafu. "It's just going to keep growing the relationship with the Saudi WWE Universe is just going to get to be as big as possible - I don't see a limit to be honest". I want to send a genuine thank you to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. for its unmatched hospitality that extends far beyond this evening.

"WWE has operated in the Middle East for almost 20 years and has developed a sizable and dedicated fan base". Considering the heinous crime committed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the Company faced a very hard decision as it relates to its event scheduled for November 2 in Riyadh. This past July, Hogan was reinstated to the Hall of Fame, foreshadowing that WWE was aiming to bring him back into the fold on a more regular basis.

Regarding the World Cup tournament that Cena was scheduled for, the idea was to mix up the brands with RAW vs. SmackDown matches.

-Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman for the vacant WWE Universal Championship. He appeared in WWE's "Greatest Royal Rumble" earlier this year in Saudi Arabia, defeating Triple H in the show's opening match.
