The Undertaker has been the hot topic in the rumors related to Crown Jewel 2021 for weeks now. The Deadman last appeared in WWE at Survivor Series 2020 where he announced his retirement. The Phenom has been rumored to return to WWE at Crown Jewel 2021 but there hasn’t been any official announcement regarding the same.
Amid rumors of his return, the Undertaker has appeared at the Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to introduce Grammy award-winning rapper Pitbull in a concert. The concert was hosted to officially launch the 2021 Riyadh Season Festival. The concert was kicked off by the Phenom and the award-winning rapper was introduced to the sold out arena as well.
Crown Jewel 2021 is scheduled to take place at the Mohammed Abdu International Stadium at the Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia which is very close to the place where the Deadman appeared. This has given a steep rise to the rumors of the Undertaker returning at WWE Crown Jewel 2021.
How has the Undertaker performed in Saudi Arabia events?
Undertaker has been a part of 4 matches in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. No matter how he has performed, everyone has acknowledged him as an all-time great. The Deadman appeared in a WWE event at Saudi Arabia for the first time at WWE Greatest Royal Rumble in 2018 where the legend defeated former WWE Superstar Rusev in a Casket match. Following the win, the Phenom appeared at Crown Jewel 2018, which was also hosted in Saudi Arabia, and teamed up with WWE hall of Famer Kane to battle the team of Triple H and Shawn Michaels, in a losing effort.
His next appearance in Saudi Arabia came at Super Showdown 2019 where he defeated WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg in a dominating fashion. In 2019, Taker appeared at Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia to defeat AJ Styles in a gauntlet match to win the Tuwaiq Mountain Trophy and write history.
