WWE Crown Jewel 2021 Pay-Per-View Online Results Predictions Spoilers Review
WWE Crown Jewel 2021 Spoilers

Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Brock Lesnar

WWE has specified that even if Roman Reigns loses the Universal Championship at Extreme Rules to Finn Balor, this match will still go on as a non-title match. However, The Tribal Chief is not only not losing to Balor, he's also not going to lose this match to The Beast Incarnate. Even if it were non-title, I don't think we'd see Lesnar come out on top unless they plan on having this be a no-contest or a disqualification or something lame like that.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns wins.

SmackDown Women's Championship Triple Threat Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Bianca Belair vs. Sasha Banks

My guess is, when negotiating with FOX, WWE basically told them in so many words, without saying it directly, "Look. We need to prioritize Raw and USA since that's where we have Peacock and all. But we'll let you keep Roman Reigns and we'll give you Charlotte Flair. Good enough?" Then, the game plan isn't naturally to take the title off her and balance that out with the SmackDown Women's Championship, but to just have Becky and Charlotte do the same belt swap thing they did last year with The Street Profits and The New Day. That's lame and spells out how little foresight goes into some of this stuff.

PREDICTION: Becky Lynch retains.

Raw Tag Team Championship Match: RK-Bro (c) vs. AJ Styles and Omos

Generic follow-up scenario. There isn't anything more to it than that, so there isn't anything more to talk about. This is filler. Some great talent, but it's still a filler rematch.

PREDICTION: Randy Orton and Riddle retain.

WWE Championship Match: Big E (c) vs. Drew McIntyre

With Drew McIntyre going to SmackDown and Big E only recently winning the title, we all know how this is going to play out. Big E is going to retain the title after a hard-fought match. McIntyre will shake hands with him afterward. I'm looking forward to it.

PREDICTION: Big E will retain.

No Holds Barred Match: Bobby Lashley vs. Goldberg

There is absolutely no way in hell they have Goldberg lose this match. No belts are on the line. He's fighting on the honor of his kid, who he always talks about wanting to be a superhero for. Blah blah blah. This is 100% a means to give Goldberg back his win after SummerSlam. Thankfully, it's No Holds Barred, which should make it easier to upgrade the quality instead of keeping it a standard match.

PREDICTION: Goldberg wins.

Hell in a Cell Match: Edge vs. Seth Rollins

Think about how much cooler this would be if we hadn't seen Hell in a Cell already this year and that we didn't get it every year like clockwork. Since they traded wins before (Edge, then Rollins), I think Edge wins this to give him the overall victory for the feud and to carry his momentum into his next feud, whoever that may be with. Rollins can always challenge Big E for the WWE Championship toward the end of the year or the start of 2022 by just cutting a promo.

PREDICTION: Edge wins.

King of the Ring Tournament Final Match: Finn Balor vs. Xavier Woods

Going with a babyface vs. babyface thing is interesting. They know how much this means to Xavier Woods, so in typical form, I'm thinking WWE probably disappoints and purposely has him lose. The Prince and Demon King thing may be what they're going for, more than to give the crown to the guy who's campaigned for it for years.

If I'm booking it, Woods wins. He deserves something like this. But if I'm saying my prediction, I think they give it to Balor.

PREDICTION: My hope is Woods. My prediction is Balor.

Queen's Crown Tournament Final Match: Zelina Vega vs. Doudrop

I was rooting for Natalya or Shayna Baszler to go with the whole Queen of Harts and Queen of Spades thing. I never would have imagined from the start of this that it would end up being Vega against Doudrop. Not only do I just not picture Doudrop doing this gimmick and Vega actually getting this push (based on how they've NEVER bothered to push her for more than like three weeks at a time), it's just baffling they didn't go with one of the others. It makes more sense for Vega to win, so that probably means Doudrop does.

PREDICTION: Doudrop wins if WWE is being WWE. But if WWE goes with logic, Vega wins.

Mansoor vs. Mustafa Ali

I'm not big on breaking up the tag team, but I knew they wouldn't be able to resist doing Mansoor against Mustafa Ali here. I saw this coming. Mansoor definitely wins, as this is Saudi Arabia.

PREDICTION: Mansoor wins.

Kickoff Match: The Usos vs. The Hurt Business

Well this is certainly random. Not only are they on opposite brands, they're both heel teams who have had zero interaction with each other lately. WWE didn't even know how to pitch it on the website, as it literally just says that they're having the match. With that being said, I like both teams, so the match should be good, even if it's a completely out of nowhere situation that won't amount to anything.

PREDICTION: The Usos win.
