The WWE World Cup field is shaping up.

Despite all the controversy currently hovering over Saudi Arabia and WWE moving forward to present their 'Crown Jewel' show in Saudi Arabia on November 2nd, the WWE World Cup tournament which will conclude at 'Crown Jewel' has more qualifying matches on the way. It was announced last week on SmackDown Live that the returning Rey Mysterio and WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura are set to go one-on-one with the winner securing their spot in the World Cup.
