SmackDown superstars have a hellacious schedule following Crown Jewel

Despite the physical tolls and strains that WWE superstars go through on a daily basis, you still get a lot of non-fans who say that WWE 'isn't a sport'.

Even worse, some say that being a wrestler is 'easy', especially in the big leagues such as WWE where you are getting paid the most money.

Well spare a thought for SmackDown superstars, who are about to prove that being a part of WWE is no laughing matter sometimes.

As we all know, Crown Jewel is taking place on October 31 in Saudi Arabia, and a lot of the current roster are expected to be there.

You would have thought that WWE may have sought out a European venue to host SmackDown the night after Crown Jewel, but that's not the case at all.

The blue brand superstars, such as Roman Reigns and Shinsuke Nakamura, are having to jet back off to the United States on a 14 hour flight straight after the event, as SmackDown will be in Buffalo, New York on November 1.

Shinsuke Nakamura is one of the many SmackDown superstars who has a gruelling schedule coming up

According to Mike Johnson of PW Insider, talents will only go home for one day before jetting off to Europe for the bi-annual European Tour.

Their first event is a live show in Brighton, England on November 7, and one night later both SmackDown and Raw will be taped in Manchester.

SmackDown will then head on to Minehead, Dublin and Vienna and Lille on consecutive nights before ending their tour in Zurich, Switzerland on November 13.

They will then return to the States for SmackDown on November 15 in Philadelphia, and the night after a live event in the nation's capital - Washington D.C. - will bring an end to their mammoth tour and they finally get to head home for a whole week.

The busy schedule starts at Crown Jewel on October 31, and ends in Washington D.C. 17 days later

Raw's schedule is also hectic, but they have more time to head back to the States following Crown Jewel, as Uniondale hosts their show on November 4.

Their live tour run starts on November 9 in Leeds, where they will work for eight straight nights, taking them to the likes of Amsterdam and all through Germany, where their last night will be November 16 in Dusseldorf before heading back across the pond.

Hopefully no injuries to talent arise from the hellacious schedule and the fans appreciate their  exertions on a nightly basis!
