Roman Reigns: Crown Jewel 2022's major plotlines

Crown Jewel, the WWE's return to pay-per-view, will take place today at Mrsool Park in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

 The show will start at 12:00 ET and will be available on Peacock.

A lot has happened in the lead-up to this event, and we should have a good show overall.

 If you haven't been watching Raw or Smackdown in the last month, we'll catch you up on how these Crown Jewel matches came to be below.

This major title clash was sparked in September when Reigns appeared on Paul's 'Impaulsive' podcast and the two began trading barbs on social media.

Later that week, a Crown Jewel bout was announced, and the two attended a press conference in Las Vegas to advertise the match.

The two have made promos on Friday Night Smackdown and even come face-to-face a few times in the last month. 

The emphasis has been on Paul, the underdog, landing just one lucky blow to pull off the upset, as he demonstrated when he knocked out Jey Uso a few weeks ago.

In reaction, the champion has dismissed any concerns about losing to the social media sensation, underlining that his two-year rule will continue.
