With Crown Jewel now just hours away, the final betting odds for the show have been released, revealing who will win the title matches on the main show, as well as the D-Generation X vs The Brothers of Destruction, and the eventual victor of the World Cup tournament.

That was after plunging 6 percent in the week since WWE confirmed it was staging the event despite the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents.

As we previously reported, Hulk is the host of Crown Jewel and the event began with "Real American" blaring over the speaker as the re-instated Hall of Famer made his entrance.

"Considering the heinous crime committed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the Company faced a very hard decision as it relates to its event scheduled for November 2 in Riyadh", the WWE acknowledged in its statement.

- Degeneration-X (Triple H and Shawn Michaels) vs.

New Day for the Smackdown Tag Titles.

WWE's top star John Cena and wrestling legend Daniel Bryan have been removed from the show for unspecified reasons, but rumours suggest they refused to be part of it.

Seth Rollins will face Bobby Lashley in the first round while Kurt Angle will be up against Dolph Ziggler in the other match from RAW.

-Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev for the U.S. Championship (Kickoff Show).

SmackDown First Round: Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy vs. WWE never said "Saudi Arabia" but the fact that the New Day arrived to the ring on a flying carpet was a pretty big clue of their location. The kickoff show, for the United States Championship, will start at 8:30 PM.
