WWE No Longer Using "Crown Jewel" Name; WWE Supporting Lars Sullivan


-- WWE will no longer be calling or referring to any Saudi Arabia wrestling events as "Crown Jewel" due to the "negative connotation" the name had developed last year. Instead, the event has now been renamed as the "World Cup."

-- The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that there is nothing really new with the Lars Sullivan situation. Sullivan remains away and the company is trying to handle it the best way possible by being supportive and telling him that he has the option to come back when he is ready. On the latest week's TV shows, Sullivan was not mentioned at all so they probably have no idea when he will be back.
