WWE Crown Jewel 2022 predictions


WWE crown jewel is scheduled to take place today (Sat 5 November 2022) at Msool Park in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It begins at 12:00 p.m. ET on Peacock in the US and WWE Network everywhere else.

Lucky for you cagesiders, our team of veteran wrestling blowhards are here to find out how the event will play out with predictions for every match on the map.

Let’s get straight to the point.


WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Logan Paul

Geno Mrosko: There is a negative percentage chance that Logan Paul will win this match. There’s just no world where he can win here. Selection: Roman Reigns

Sean Rueter: Watching the world burn doesn’t sound much worse than what we’re currently seeing, but I still don’t think WWE will go the shock route here. Selection: Roman Reigns

Kyle Decker: Man, can you imagine that? Selection: Roman Reigns

Claire Elizabeth: Credit where credit is due, Logan has shown real talent, and WWE loves chasing an underdog star, but there’s no way in Satan’s hell he should win this. To be honest, I’d rather have David Arquette. Selection: Roman Reigns

Cain A. Knight: Logan Paul will land that one lucky shot, but it still won’t be good enough to stop Roman from smashing it. Selection: Roman Reigns

Mark Benjamin: Why does WWE even let us do things like this? Cain is most likely right: Logan lands a lucky shot, but it just isn’t enough to knock out a god. Selection: Roman Reigns

Raw Women’s Championship Last Woman Standing: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley

Geno Mrosko: It felt like Bayley could take the title at various points, but now it doesn’t feel like it. Choice: Bianca Belair

Sean Rueter: If they wanted to pull the trigger here, it would have happened long ago. Choice: Bianca Belair

Kyle Decker: We’ve come to a point in this feud where they either need to make a change or move on. With a lack of strong heels to step up to Bianca if she wins here, I’ll say she doesn’t, but I’m certainly not confident. Choice: Bayley

Claire Elizabeth: Yes, I don’t see it, especially after Damage CTRL lost the tag titles. They just aren’t meant to be a particularly dominant heel stall, and Bayley may well carry on to, uh…I dunno… Pick: Bianca Belair

Cain A. Knight: Bianca Belair is right there with Roman Reigns as the top booked stars on the WWE roster for the last two years. I think they will salvage their eventual title loss for either Charlotte Flair or Ronda Rousey. Choice: Bianca Belair

Mark Benjamin: You do not change the titles abroad. Not this one anyway. Damage CNTRL could win something here, but not this title. Choice: Bianca Belair

Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. Ridge Holland & BUTCH

Geno Mrosko: No reason to think they will make a title change here. Choice: The Usos

Sean Rueter: FIGHT NIGHT is a regional holiday, I don’t think they celebrate it in Saudi Arabia. Choice: The Usos

Kyle Decker: Even though Jey Uso still can’t prick Ucey, they should deal with the Brutes here. Choice: The Usos

Claire Elizabeth: The Bloodline is so so great at the moment don’t screw it up for less than Sami Uso taking over the tag titles. Choice: The Usos

Cain A. Knight: The Usos can’t become the longest-reigning tag team champion in WWE history if they lose the belts here. Choice: The Usos

Mark Benjamin: Time to get Ucey. Choice: The Usos

Tag Team Championship: Alexa Bliss & Asuka (c) vs. Damage CTRL

Geno Mrosko: I could 100 percent see them turning back the titles, if only to make sure there was a title change on the show. Choose: Damage CTRL

Sean Rueter: Let’s say they buckle their belts back to Kai & SKY en route to a feud between the current champions just because something kayfabe newsworthy should happen on this show. Choose: Damage CTRL

Kyle Decker: It would be a bit odd to hype up the titles like that, but it certainly wouldn’t make the belts look weaker if they did and might generate some excitement. There’s a very good chance that CTRL will reclaim those belts soon. However, I don’t see the change within six days of Alexa & Asuka’s victory. Choice: Alexa Bliss & Asuka

Claire Elizabeth: They’ve gotten a little bit better at giving meaning to these shows, but they still feel a lot like glorified house shows, and I think they win the babyface win, maybe with a little drama, for another rematch to justify in a week or two. Choice: Alexa Bliss & Asuka

Cain A. Knight: I think Damage CTRL gets nothing in Saudi Arabia. Choice: Asuka & Alexa Bliss

Mark Benjamin: I choose Damage CNTRL here. Kai-N-SKY retrieves the belts after losing them Raw, and leave Saudi Arabia with at least one win under their belt. Well, her new belts. Select: damage CNTRL

Steel Cage: Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross

Geno Mrosko: This is WWE, and even under Triple H, the Heel isn’t going to win in the end… is it? Choice: Drew McIntyre

Sean Rueter: Although they could dress her in a KSA approved bodysuit, I’m assuming Scarlett won’t make the trip. They can turn a Kross loss if they don’t have his better half in his corner. Choice: Drew McIntyre

Kyle Decker: The plan must be to build up Kross further. Drew is in a good place where he’s pretty much over. Karrion is not at that point. He needs to keep winning until fans buy more. Choice: Karrion Kross

Claire Elizabeth: To a certain extent, all I want in life is for Drew to reuse the finish from his Steel Cage match against Roderick Strong at Evolve 38. Caught between the cage and the ring as Roddy pounded him with kick after kick until he passed out. .. awesome stuff. Choice: Karrion Kross

Cain A. Knight: It feels like Kross needs a lot more help to get over this, so I think he’s beating McIntyre again. And he probably should, considering Karrion was the victim of that bizarre car accident. Choice: Karrion Kross

Mark Benjamin: That’s really a coin toss for me. Drew can take losses at this point in his career, so a move from Kross makes the most sense. But Drew is Drew. Choice: Karrion Kross

Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley

Geno Mrosko: This is where Brock gets his victory back in preparation for the big PPV shows set to begin in 2023. Choice: Brock Lesnar

Sean Rueter: He’s done the job for Roman twice this year. I love you Bob, but you’re not Roman. Choice: Brock Lesnar

Kyle Decker: Get on your feet here and walk with Bobby to get the win. Feels like he needs the compensation after Brock screwed him. It will generally be interesting to see if Brock’s booking changes at all without Vince at the helm. Probably not, and I’m probably wrong, but I’m sticking with it. Choice: Bobby Lashley

Claire Elizabeth: Brock is Brock, Brock is bulletproof, I gotta get my boy Franklin Roberto Lashley a big win that he can ride for about five years. Choice: Bobby Lashley

Cain A. Knight: Brock Lesnar is on a two-game losing streak. He doesn’t lose a third. Choice: Brock Lesnar

Mark Benjamin: Brock doesn’t come back to lose. Unless it’s about a novel. And he definitely doesn’t go abroad to lose. Choice: Brock Lesnar.

Braun Strowman vs. Omos

Geno Mrosko: Seems obvious they see more in Strowman and this match will likely give us the answer. Choice: Brown Strowman

Sean Rueter: As long as meat is being beaten, who really cares? Choice: Omos

Kyle Decker: One of these guys was brought back to WWE for a reason and that person isn’t Omos. Choice: Brown Strowman

Claire Elizabeth: No contest when Timmy puts away his action figures because his mom called him into the kitchen for lunch? nope Do not buy? Omos had a great run, but it’s a lot closer to the end than it was to the beginning. Choice: Brown Strowman

Cain A. Knight: This is Strowman’s first major match in WWE since returning, so he’s not losing. Braun’s presence on the WWE roster makes Omos obsolete, and that’s why Omos is here to supplant Braun before he falls into oblivion. Choice: Brown Strowman

Mark Benjamin: sigh. Choice: Brown Strowman

The OK vs. Judgment Day

Geno Mrosko: So who will be the neutralizer for Rhea Ripley? Choice: The OC

Sean Rueter: Another victory for the villains, setting the stage for Raquel or Beth or whoever to solve the Rhea problem at WarGames. Tip: Judgment Day

Kyle Decker: The OC should win this match since it’s being realigned. But Triple H seems to love Judgment Day. I also think whoever they want to neutralize Rhea will go back to the States. Choice: Judgment Day

Claire Elizabeth: House show rules, baby, Finn Balor will slip on a banana peel and the good brothers will get that double three ski. PS – where the hell is my omen in the sky the fuck? Choice: The OC

Cain A. Knight: This will be the night AJ Styles and his buddies find a way to neutralize Rhea Ripley long enough to earn the win. Choice: The OC

Mark Benjamin: This is the game I’m looking forward to the most. Specifically, how Team California neutralized Rhea Ripley. Choice: The OC

This is how we see the card play.
