WHAT HAPPENED? World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) current owner Endeavor wants to boost the profile of their Crown Jewel show, and as a result they are working on bringing in Al-Nassr captain Ronaldo as a special guest - as per Diario AS. The event will be held in November this year, but Ronaldo has yet to confirm whether he will be in attendance.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ever since his move to Saudi Arabia in December 2022, Ronaldo has been an absolute sensation in the country. His transfer also started a mass exodus of top talent from Europe to the Middle East, with the likes of Karim Benzema, Neymar and Sadio Mane also now starring in the Saudi Pro League. The 38-year-old has also been spotted at non-football events, most notably the boxing fight between YouTube star Jake Paul and Tommy Fury back in February.
