WWE Crown Jewel will take place this Friday on November 2 in Saudi Arabia, in-front of a sold-out 25,000-strong crowd in Riyadh.

It will feature the first ever 'WWE World Cup', an eight-man knockout tournament to determine the best in the world.

The tournament was altered just this past Monday on Raw, when Bobby Lashley replaced John Cena in the red-brand side of the bracket.

Cena, much like Daniel Bryan, has refused to travel to Saudi Arabia, presumably to protect his growing career in the film industry.

It was also revealed on Monday who would face who in the quarter-final rounds, with The Miz and Jeff Hardy squaring off and Rey Mysterio going up against an old foe in Randy Orton.

The four stars came together for a tag team main event last night, with Mysterio and Hardy getting the victory after a 619/Swanton Bomb combo on the A-lister, but Orton got the last laugh, dropping all three with RKOs to send a message ahead of Friday's competition.

SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon revealed an interesting stipulation for the tournament earlier in the night though that could really spice up the whole thing.

Shane McMahon revealed an intriguing stipulation for the WWE World Cup on SmackDown last night.

In a backstage meeting with all four of his competitors, Shane insisted that he cannot let his sister Stephanie get one over on him.

So he declared that if the SmackDown superstar who reaches the final loses, they will no-longer be welcome on the show - effectively banishing them from the blue brand for good.

Up until last night, it felt like the tournament wouldn't have any significant meaning towards the weekly product, so this is a welcome twist.

And it probably means that should a Raw superstar come up victorious, we will see one of the four SmackDown stars on Monday nights.
