Can you blame him? We are less than a week away from WWE Crown Jewel, which will be one of the biggest events of the year. WWE will be heading over to Saudi Arabia for the first time in over a year and a half for the event, which is featuring a stacked card. There is all kinds of good stuff set for the show, but one match has not warranted the same kind of attention. One of the wrestlers is not happy about it.
This week’s edition of SmackDown featured a rundown of the Crown Jewel card. Every match was mentioned, save for the grudge match between Mustafa Ali and Mansoor. There was no reference to the match, which prompted Ali to send out a tweet of an image of the match, saying that it will be on the card as well. The match was added to the card earlier this week after the team split on Monday Night Raw.

They have a reason to be mad. Check out how the match was set up:
Opinion: While I can understand the idea that this was little more than an accident, I can’t blame the two of them for being annoyed that their story is not even getting a mention. The two of them have put together a story and it should get a great reaction in Mansoor’s home country, but it doesn’t help when the company doesn’t bother mentioning it on one of the last shows before the event.
How should WWE build the match? How will the match go? Let us know in the comments below.
