It appears that WWE has lost yet another superstar for Friday's "Crown Jewel" card in Saudi Arabia.

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.

Hogan has been quietly added to the Crown Jewel events page on WWE.com so that confirms that he will have some sort of role on the show. WWE has faced wide condemnation for not cancelling the event, including pressure from multiple U.S. senators. AJ was originally scheduled for Crown Jewel but Bryan is not going to the Kingdom, presumably due to the controversy surrounding WWE's relationship with the Saudis following the state-sponsored death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

While the company said in a statement that it had been a "very hard decision", it pointed to a 20-year relationship with fans in the region.

Should that happen, the WWE will have to replace two stars, not just one, thanks to its controversial decision to stick it out in Saudi Arabia.

Despite describing the incident as a heinous crime, the organisation announced that: "Similar to other US-based companies who plan to continue operations in Saudi Arabia, the Company has chose to uphold its contractual obligations to the General Sports Authority and stage the event". Full year 2018 guidance is predicated on the staging of the Riyadh event as scheduled.

Samoa Joe attacked A.J. Styles and Bryan after Tuesday's match. "And I also want to say once again, thank all of you for allowing me to be part of something so special", he had said. "What an honor and a privilege it is to be allowed to be a part of an event like today". Nearly everything on it clicked - from the obligatory in-ring revolving door opener, to the all-star main event - and it set the brand off to "the global pay-per-view event known as Crown Jewel" (h/t: Tom Phillips) in effective fashion, with every major programme enhanced on the controversial road to Riyadh.
