Next month, the WWE will make their return to Saudi Arabia when they present Crown Jewel, their second network exclusive event to take place in the country this year.

While there is little known about the event at the moment, the company has confirmed that they will hold their first ever 'WWE World Cup' at the show.

Details about the tournament remain vague but it is presumed that several major countries will be represented in the competition and that it will dominate the majority of the night's proceedings.

Choosing a candidate for most of the countries will be an easy task for the WWE, given their lack of options for a lot of countries, but choosing the correct candidate for the USA will prove to be a difficult task.

Booking the USA to win the tournament, especially on foreign soil, could be as a slightly self-indulgent decision, so the company needs to be careful with who they choose as their representative.

With that in mind, let's take a look at five superstars who could potentially represent the USA in the WWE World Cup at Crown Jewel.

#5: Big E

While there is every chance that Big E will be involved in some sort of match with The New Day at Crown Jewel, the current SmackDown tag-team champion could certainly benefit from a successful run in the first ever WWE World Cup.

Of all three members of The New Day, Big E has the most potential as a singles superstar and having him compete in the World Cup could provide him with a nice opportunity to show the world exactly what he is capable of.

The WWE could also treat this as something of a litmus test for the wrestler, and use the tournament as an opportunity to gauge fan's reactions to him as a singles star.
