Major update on Daniel Bryan/WWE Crown Jewel Submitted by Aaron Rift on 10/30/2018 at 10:04 AM
PWInsider.com is reporting that Daniel Bryan will not be traveling to Saudi Arabia for the WWE Crown Jewel PPV event. Mike Johnson noted that WWE began making alternative plans including Bryan and Styles doing a match at the Performance Center instead and having the match air during Crown Jewel. However, it appears that the idea was scrapped.
The current speculation is that Bryan will be taken out of the Crown Jewel match and replaced by someone else with Rusev being one of the rumored names. There was also reportedly talk of having Bryan face Styles on Smackdown tonight instead of the PPV. PWInsider adds that no final decision was made as of Monday night.
Like John Cena, Bryan has reportedly been against the idea of traveling to Saudi Arabia in light of the recent news that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed by Saudi officials.
