It is everyone’s favorite time of year. Things are heating up in the wrestling world. WWE has several PLEs this month. Later in the month Survivor Series will take place in Chicago, but first up is WWE Crown Jewel.
Regardless of what you think of WWE going to Saudi Arabia, they continue to draw fan interest there for their events. Each year, the company holds two major shows there. Take the politics out of sports and this is sports entertainment, and it is a business, and WWE makes a ton of money from these shows. That is why they go.
But enough of the backstage talk surrounding the event. It is a big lineup for Crown Jewel. Roman Reigns is in action for the first time since Summerslam. It will also be the last time he defends the WWE title until the Royal Rumble. His opponent is the megastar, LA Knight. This should be a great match.
Along with that tile match, there are three other title matches on the card as well, including several grudge matches.
With only a day left before WWE Crown Jewel, let’s take a look at some of the betting favourites that are expected to emerge victorious in the night’s biggest bouts.

Crown Jewel Odds via BetOnline:
- WWE Championship: Roman Reigns (c) (-5000) vs. LA Knight (+900)
Look we all know LA Knight is not winning this match, right? Stranger things have happened. But this is a test run for Knight with the big dogs. He has held his own with The Miz, John Cena, and The Bloodline. Now it is time to tackle the biggest dog in the yard. LA Knight’s rise is exactly what the company needed. He has stated what everyone has felt for a long time, the Bloodline and Roman Reigns have been exhausted. It will be a fun match. Most expect Roman to win, but the key will be how he wins and can keep Knight’s momentum rolling.
- WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) (-400) vs. Drew McIntyre (+250)
This should be a good match between two guys they have not wrestled in a long time. Rollins continues to sell his injured back. McIntyre is looking to regain something he lost. Since Drew returned this is his first big title match. Remember he fell victim to the Roman Express in Scotland last year. The promos these two have cut are great. The way the Drew McIntyre slow heel turn is being built has been great. Expect these two to have a great match. The odds for a Damien Priest Cash-In are at +700, but that is in match only.
- WWE United States Championship: Rey Mysterio (c) (+500) vs. Logan Paul (-1000)
Rey Mysterio continues to lead the LWO. Many are wondering if Santos Escobar will turn on Rey for taking the chance away from him to win the title. That is a possibility. Also many expect Logan Paul to win here as well. He called out Rey Mysterio after a boxing match. Mysterio answered and the two had a face-to-face on Smackdown. Logan being a natural heel it would make sense for a title change here.
- WWE Women’s World Championship Match: Rhea Ripley (c) (-5000) vs. Raquel Rodriguez (+200) vs. Nia Jax (+800) vs. Shayna Baszler (+1000) vs. Zoey Strak (+1100)
Rhea Ripley is the leader of the Judgement Day and you can see it. There is a reason she is a heavy favorite to retain the title. The other ladies will put up a fight, but most expect Rhea to win here. And she needs to look dominant in this performance too.
- WWE Women’s Championship: Iyo Sky (C) (-300) vs. Bianca Belair (+200)
This should be a really good match. Bianca and Iyo have not wrestled one-on-one since their NXT days. Finally, there will be no triple threat and we will get to see these ladies have a great wrestling match. Expect some interference from Damage CTRL, but also expect the champion to retain.
- Cody Rhodes (-700) vs. Damien Priest (+400)
This should be a great match. Cody is looking to continue his story toward getting the WWE Championship from Roman. Then there is Damien with the Money in the Bank contract. The Judgement Day and Cody have been going at it for quite some time now. Expect Cody to win here. You know Dom and Finn will play a role, but expect Cody to have some backup. This should be a good one.
- John Cena (-120) vs. Solo Sikoa (-120)
This match is truly 50/50. It can go either way. Expect this match to be like Cena’s matches against Umaga, which means we will see Super Cena at one point. Not sure who wins here. With Cena and Knight getting the win at Fastlane, we have to imagine Solo going over here. But we truly don’t know.
WWE Crown Jewel happens on Saturday, November 4th, live on Peacock.
