Here’s some wrestling news sure to polarize your Facebook wall: The Undertaker and Hulk Hogan are featured in local ads for WWE’s next Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, scheduled for October 31.
Neither man is a stranger to WWE’s Saudi Arabian efforts. Hogan used the 2018 edition of the event to ease back into the WWE Universe after being fired and briefly erased from company history after his racist audio scandal. Undertaker is a recurring main-eventer for the shows, wrestling D-Generation X in 2018 in a match that saw Triple H get injured, and having a match with Bill Godlberg at Super Showdown that was so bad it injured both men and necessitated an apology.
You can watch the local ad below.

No word yet on what either man will do at the show, as WWE won’t start building the card or announcing matches until after Hell in a Cell on October 6. Undertaker will presumably be main-eventing again, but hopefully not against Hogan, who has declared that he couldn’t physically wrestle again even if he wanted to. Although Hogan and Ric Flair are both guest starring on Monday’s “season premiere” of Monday Night Raw, so maybe the Saudi Prince has requested 66-year old Hulk Hogan vs. 70-year old Ric Flair. It’d make a 54-year old Undertaker seem like Humberto Carrillo.
