WWE confirmed that The Usos will face Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin of the Hurt Business at the kick-off show of WWE Crown Jewel 2021 PPV.
Kayla Braxton revealed this news earlier this morning on WWE Bump. The Usos will not defend their SmackDown tag team championship in this bout as it will be a non-title match.
This is such a random match to put up on the card. Both teams are not even on the same brands. Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin just reunited in the Hurt Business just a few weeks back and aligned with Bobby Lashley.
However, the fans in Saudi Arabia will be happy to see two talented teams slugging it out on the pre-show. The main card has many more exciting matches announced.
The Usos’ Cousin and the Head of the Table Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar in the main event of the Crown Jewel. On the other hand, the leader of the Hurt Business, Bobby Lashley will also be in action as he faces Goldberg in a No Holds Barred match at the PPV event.
King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown Tournament final, Hell in a Cell Match between Edge and Seth Rollins, SmackDown Women’s Title Triple Threat match and WWE Title match between Drew McIntyre and Big E are all on the main card.
WWE Crown Jewel 2021 has a special start time of 12 PM EST and the pre-show will start at 11 AM EST on 21 October.
