WWE Wrestlers Reportedly Don't Want To Travel To Work Crown Jewel

Its next event, The Crown Jewel, will see the likes of Triple H and Shawn Michaels come out of retirement for a tag-team match against the Undertaker and Kane, who recently won a mayoral election.

As Oliver pointed out, a "much grimmer story" was going on in Saudi Arabia even then - for example, women who had campaigned for driving rights had been arrested even as their accomplishment was being heralded.

Richard Branson of Virgin pulled out of two of his advisory roles in the Saudi Vision 2030 projects, whilst a number of businesses - including CNN, The Financial Times, Viacom, and CNBC - have all pulled out of the Saudi Future Investment Initiative. However, their first show from Saudi Arabia, the Greatest Royal Rumble, did such great numbers, plus the fans really enjoyed it.

WWE has remained tight-lipped on the entire issue, offering a brief statement last week claiming to be "monitoring the situation", however, as of this writing, the plan remains for WWE to hold its Crown Jewel event in Riyadh on November 2nd.

The President then reportedly said after Kanye's speech, "He can speak for me any time he wants. he's a smart cookie". Trump looked alternatively bemused, entertained, baffled, guarded and, yes, maybe even a little nervous all at once.

Powell's POV: WWE officials deserve all the criticism they get if they follow through with holding WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia despite all signs pointing to the country's leadership being behind the presumed slaughter of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Several US Senators have also urged WWE to rethink the event, with Sen.

WWE responded to an inquiry from the New York Post concerning multiple reports of employees within the company being very unhappy at having to travel to Saudi Arabia in the current political climate. "WWE has been at the forefront of change and you want to change Saudi Arabia, you send something like WWE there".
