Rey Mysterio just returned to WWE not too long ago, and he already has the chance to make an impact as he will be competing in the World Cup tournament at Crown Jewel today. However, if Mysterio makes it to the finals and does not win the tournament, he will be fired. Fans are used to seeing Mysterio compete in his iconic mask, but a photo taken just hours before the Crown Jewel event today shows a rare glimpse of the former world champion with his head exposed. Rey does make sure to cover his mouth in the photo, but his head can still be seen. Rey Mysterio will start off today’s World Cup tournament by competing against Randy Orton. He will move onto the semifinals and the finals if he moves on from there.

Crown Jewel is now just mere hours away from taking place. WWE will be presenting the pay-per-view in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at 12pm ET today, and a few more backstage news and notes have just been uncovered. PWInsider has reported that Vince McMahon is backstage for at the site of today’s Crown Jewel event, and he will be running the show as usual. It was also mentioned that The Big Show is currently in Saudi Arabia right now as well. Big Show has aligned himself with Sheamus & Cesaro recently, so it would seem most likely for him to appear during The Bar’s tag team title defense against The New Day. WWE’s Crown Jewel show will begin airing live on the WWE Network later on today.
Fans of NXT may remember a competitor by the name of Bull Dempsey. Bull wrestled for WWE as a member of the NXT roster starting in 2013, and he remained there until he was released by the company in 2016. Dempsey has been wrestling since 2005, so he certainly has plenty of experience, which is why Business Insider just decided to speak with Dempsey when they visited the New York Wrestling Connection training facility in Long Island, New York. The likes of Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, and Tony Nese have all trained there in the past, and Dempsey works as a head trainer there now. Bull Dempsey continues to wrestle today as Bull James. The full interview with Bull can be checked out at this link.
