Predicting the other 4 qualifiers at the WWE World Cup
WWE Crown Jewel will emanate from the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on the 2nd November 2018. One of the important aspects of the event will be a one-day eight-man 'WWE World Cup' tournament featuring some of the best superstars in the WWE roster.
John Cena was announced as the first participant courtesy of the tremendous accolades he achieved in his 19 years within the company. Baron Corbin thought of sneaking into the tournament by abusing his powers as the Constable, but, Kurt Angle played spoilers to his plans as he eliminated the 'Lone Wolf' in the Battle Royale and made his way to the tournament.
Jeff Hardy became the first SmackDown Superstar to qualify for the tournament after Samoa Joe couldn't continue due to the injury he suffered in his left leg three days earlier in the match against AJ Styles at WWE Super Showdown.
