On Monday’s season premiere of Raw, a huge 10-man tag match was announced to take place at WWE Crown Jewel at the end of October.
The Miz hosted one of the most star-studded episodes of MizTv ever when he had both Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair on as guests for the season premiere of Monday Night Raw. After some back-and-forth jabs and a comment by Flair that he’d like to be involved in something that “had as many zeros on his cheque as Hogan’s would.” The Miz then announced Flair would get that chance.
At #WWECrownJewel, it will be #TeamFlair vs. #TeamHogan in a 5-on-5 Tag Team Match with @WWERollins as the Captain of #TeamHogan and @RandyOrton as the Captain of #TeamFlair! #RAW@HulkHogan @RicFlairNatrBoy @mikethemiz pic.twitter.com/HiNwiAiSjU— WWE (@WWE) October 1, 2019
At WWE’s next big Saudi show, Crown Jewel, Hogan would coach one team and Flair another as each legend would select five WWE Superstars to compete for bragging rights. It didn’t take long for the first team participants to be announced. As captain of Hogan’s team, Seth Rollins would lead the charge, while captaining Flair’s team would be long-time friends and former Evolution running buddy, Randy Orton.
Orton and Rollins decided to square up for an impromptu match, but it didn’t go far as King Corbin came down, attacked Rollins and revealed himself the likely second member of Orton’s team. After a two-on-one beat down, it was Rusev who made the save, likely revealing himself as Rollin’s first team member.
Who Else Will Join?
Over the next few weeks, the rest of the team members are set to be announced to join Team Hogan and Team Flair. With Rollins and Orton already in, it seems logical to assume some pretty big names will join the group of 10. Could Roman Reigns, or Bray Wyatt be involved? Would WWE try to bring back someone like Batista?
It will be interesting to see who else is considered while remembering, there are stars like Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan who often choose not to attend.
