WWE Crown Jewel 2023 Pay-Per-View Online Results Predictions Spoilers Review
WWE Crown Jewel 2023 Spoilers


World Heavyweight Championship Match: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Drew McIntyre

Given the layout of the Raw roster right now, there weren't any viable challengers for Seth Rollins to fit in this spot other than Drew McIntyre. They haven't been setting this up, but they have a few weeks to sort that out. Even if they just end up going the AEW route of "someone's challenging the champion and that's your story, shut up and watch the match", it's hard to argue someone else should be in this spot other than McIntyre.

I don't think the title changes hands. It certainly could happen, especially with the possibility Damian Priest could cash in Money in the Bank on either of these guys, but I just think Rollins is keeping it until WrestleMania and failing to capture the title will be another reason McIntyre turns heel.

PREDICTION: Seth Rollins retains.

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. LA Knight

LA Knight puts up a good fight. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa interfere. Roman hits a spear. Reigns retains. Rinse and repeat. I'm glad LA Knight is getting this push, though. Hopefully, WWE doesn't just cast him aside after this event and they end up giving him the United States Championship or something.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns retains.

World Championship Fatal 5-Way Match: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Nia Jax vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Zoey Stark

Had WWE not teased these Becky Lynch vs Rhea Ripley encounters multiple times, and had there been more of an actual title reign so far for The Nightmare, I would think this could be a time where the belt might change hands. After all, it would be a good means to take the championship away from Rhea without her being pinned. But given the circumstances, I think this is as straightforward as it can be, wherein Ripley will retain, probably pin Baszler or Stark, and this is mostly a Fatal 5-Way because WWE knows none of those four challengers have been built up well enough to create buzz on their own.

PREDICTION: Rhea Ripley retains.

United States Championship Match: Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Logan Paul

This one's tough. Realistically, since Roman Reigns doesn't appear all that often, WWE needs a title on SmackDown that can be defended on a more regular basis. That's the United States Championship. Rey is also feuding with Bobby Lashley, who I'd imagine he's more likely to take the title from Mysterio than Logan Paul, who wouldn't be around much to make use of it. But we are talking about November. Maybe Logan Paul wins this and drops it at Survivor Series just a few weeks later. Or maybe, WWE plans on having Paul make enough appearances that he can lose it at Royal Rumble. But then again, I think Paul appearing IN the Royal Rumble match makes more sense in that regard. So while I don't think it's impossible for Paul to leave Crown Jewel with this title, I'm about 75% leaning toward Mysterio retaining.

PREDICTION: Rey Mysterio retains.

Cody Rhodes vs. Damian Priest

I'm a big fan of both of these guys, but I'm not at all a fan of how bland and uninspired this is. The Money in the Bank briefcase isn't even on the line. This is just one of those matches we've seen in tag team format like 12 times already, and it's a do-nothing singles match. Not #1 contender, no gimmick, no stipulation, NOTHING but "those guys are on the card." That's a shame. Both deserve better.

PREDICTION: Cody Rhodes wins.

John Cena vs. Solo Sikoa

It's a bigger deal for Solo Sikoa to beat John Cena. However, Sikoa doesn't lose anything by coming up short against someone they're referring to as "the greatest of all time." Plus, Cena was just talking about how he hasn't won a televised match in a long time. It seems like it fits the mood to give him the victory.

PREDICTION: John Cena wins.

Women's Championship Match: Iyo Sky (c) vs. Bianca Belair

This is a tough one. I had fully expected Charlotte Flair to be the next champion in order to face either Bianca Belair or Jade Cargill at WrestleMania 40. Now that she's failed a number of times and Belair is back and getting a solo shot, it could certainly mean Belair wins the title and she defends against Flair and/or Cargill. Or, that she wins the belt, fights someone else, and Flair vs Cargill happens as a separate match. Who would be Belair's opponent outside of those two, if that were the case? No idea. Nobody stands out to me as an option that makes sense. They've done her against Damage CTRL to death, she's fought Asuka and no other Superstars on SmackDown are big enough opponents (which I'm sad to admit, as I'm fan of people like Zelina Vega and Michin, but it's just the truth right now). Then again, if Iyo Sky wins, who does she go up against next and drop the title to? Kairi? Who would Kairi fight at WrestleMania? Is THAT the WrestleMania title match, and Belair, Flair and Cargill are in a Triple Threat? Baffling. I don't know. Let's just say that Belair wins for the sake of making a prediction. I'm not confident in that at all, though.

PREDICTION: Bianca Belair wins.

JD McDonagh vs. Sami Zayn

They're really phoning in this event and just saying "Well, you've got Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, John Cena, Logan Paul...what more do you want?" I like JD McDonagh and I love Sami Zayn, but this is the type of do-nothing match we've seen 100 times on Raw for months. Why should I or anyone else give a shit?

PREDICTION: Sami Zayn wins.
