Lacey, Natalya To Wear Body Suits + First-Ever Female WarGames

Lacey Evans, Natalya To Wear Bodysuits For Crown Jewel Event

Women Working Crown Jewel + Rock-UFC Announcement Friday

Much like when Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss competed in 2017 in the Middle East, WWE superstars Lacey Evans and Natalya will be wearing bodysuits at Crown Jewel. The two will make history as the first-ever women’s wrestling match in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

WWE Crown Jewel takes place Thursday live on the WWE Network with Cain Velasquez challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE title.

Stephanie McMahon told TMZ that “As a woman, as a mother, as just a person, I couldn’t be more proud” of Evans and Natalya competing in Saudi Arabia.

“I am ecstatic, thrilled,” she said. “Many different adjectives to describe how I feel right now.”

On the bodysuits instead of the customary ring attire for the two, McMahon said “We need to be respectful of the cultures in the countries we perform in.”

Crown Jewel kicks off at noon ET with a pre-show. The event is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET.
