Ronaldo’s Potential Appearance at WWE Crown Jewel 2023

The Crown Jewel event, scheduled for the 4th of November, is set to mark WWE’s second return to Saudi Arabia in 2023.

Interestingly, Saudi Arabia is also where Ronaldo currently plys his trade, playing for Al-Nassr. He shares the field with other notable footballers such as David Ospina, Aymeric Laporte, and Sadio Mane.

Reports from the Spanish media outlet, AS (via WrestleTalk) which were later picked up by several UK newspapers, suggest that WWE is keen on securing Ronaldo’s appearance for the Crown Jewel event.

If this collaboration materialises, Ronaldo is expected to receive a significant appearance fee.
