Here's your fight size update for Friday, October 22, 2021:
- Edge and referee Jessika Carr have reflected on the first-ever Hell in a Cell match in Saudi Arabia with the WWE Hall of Famer giving major praise to the referee.
Every time I get to go to work, it’s special.
But some events like Crown Jewel are like a whole surreal dream. Some of my favorite moments are the nerve wracking entrances when we are waiting to rock it. Waiting in Hell In A Cell is intense!
I’ve always prided myself in being a strong woman. To be able to represent that on not only a huge stage in a Hell In a Cell match, but also live in person in Saudi Arabia is just so beyond wrestling and incredible to me. Looking out in the audience before the match I felt support of the people and I won’t forget that.
Any time you go out there you are trusted with something special. I was trusted by WWE and trusted by @edgeratedr and @wwerollins not just once but three times. I was lucky to get one, but all three of these matches!? Summerslam. Madison Square Garden. Crown Jewel.
So thankful and blessed. Then to cap it off with Xavier Woods winning the King of the Ring Tournament! I got to work with Finn again too before he went over the Raw!
There’s always so much more work to do. I want to be the best me I can be in and out of the ring. I want to continue to impact people, maybe giving some strength that people didn’t know they had.
See you soon Wichita, Smackdown awaits! --
I’m in the midst of my 22hr travel back home after #crownjewel and Hell in a Cell. More on that in a future post. But I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge something that may have gone unnoticed to some. Last night @wweladyrefjess refereed our match. Many firsts in doing that. The first woman to referee in Saudi Arabia. MASSIVE. Actually trying to move the needle in a positive direction. The first woman to referee Hell in a Cell. MASSIVE. She was in there for every part of this insane trilogy that I’m so proud of. Summerslam. Madison Square Garden. Crown Jewel. She’s knocking down barriers and I couldn’t be more proud of her. And she got these gigs not because she’s a woman. It’s because she kicks so much ass at her job. Many more milestones to come. When my daughters watch these matches someday I can’t wait to explain how important you were to all of this. Kudos Jess. Keep making us smile.
Resorts World President Scott Sibella kicked off the unveiling ceremony by welcoming guests and commenting on how thrilled the team is to celebrate Mike Tyson with the statue and welcome Mulberry Street Pizzeria to the property. Mulberry Street Pizzeria owner and founder Richie Palmer then praised Tyson as the greatest heavyweight of all time and welcomed his longtime friend to the stage to say a few words. Tyson thanked Sibella, Palmer, and the crowd before removing the cover from his statue.
Following the unveiling, Tyson, Palmer, and Sibella posed for pictures before Tyson signed the wall of Mulberry Street Pizzeria and enjoyed a slice of pizza with Palmer. Guests then enjoyed the restaurant’s iconic pizza, cocktails made with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Teremana Tequila, cookies, and beer and wine.
