The match was set this week on RAW after Triple H and Shawn Michaels officially announced the return of D-Generation X and challenged the Brothers of Destruction to a match at Crown Jewel. This came after the Undertaker and Kane launched a vicious attack against Triple H and Michaels at Super Show-Down. The last time DX had to deal with the Undertaker was back in 1997 when the duo were first teamed up against the Deadman and Mankind.
It was also revealed this week that John Cena will be part of Crown Jewel’s WWE World Cup Tournament while others had to qualify. The first man to do so was Kurt Angle after winning a battle royale set up by Acting GM Baron Corbin. SmackDown Live will also have two qualifying matches this Tuesday to fill half of the World Cup spots. Randy Orton will take on the returning Big Show while Samoa Joe will face another returning Superstar, Jeff Hardy.
Here is the updated card for Crown Jewel on November 2.
