WWE Crown Jewel was established in 2018 and has become a permanent fixture on the WWE Premium Live Event calendar. The event was created as part of the 10-year agreement between WWE and the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, tying in with their Saudi Vision 2030 initiative.

To date there have been three Crown Jewel events, with shows in 2018, 2019 and 2021. There was no event in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic
