There’s your next one. We are less than two weeks away from WWE Crown Jewel, which will be the company’s next event from the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The show will feature some rather high profile matches as WWE treats each event as one of their biggest of the year. That can make for some important moments, and now we know something else on the card.

This week on Monday Night Raw, Mansoor and Mustafa Ali were defeated by Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander. Following the match, Ali, who was pinned, shoved Mansoor away for trying to help him. Later in the show, Ali yelled at Mansoor and attacked him. After the show was over, WWE confirmed that the two will meet at Crown Jewel in Mansoor’s home country.

This should be a special one. Check out how we got here and Mansoor’s time in the ring in Saudi Arabia:

Opinion: I don’t think it’s any surprise that Mansoor is going to get a big match at a show in his home country, and I don’t think it is a surprise that he will be facing Ali. It was either going to be this or the two of them getting a Tag Team Title shot and this makes a lot more sense out of the two options. Mansoor has done well on these shows before and this should be no exception.

What do you think of the idea? Who will win the match? Let us know in the comments below.
