U.S. Senators are urging WWE not to travel to Saudi Arabia. But will Vince McMahon and WWE listen?
WWE is staying in this relationship because the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is paying them tons of money. I mean heck the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia forced Shawn Michaels out of retirement. Just think about that... WWE has been trying to get HBK to return for dream matches. All it took was Saudi Arabia offering HBK $10 million for one match. Fans have been urging WWE to exit the Saudi Arabia relationship since the start. Greatest Royal Rumble didn't feature a single women for well.. reasons. That contradicts WWE's current women's evolution. Now Crown Jewel is in jeopardy for different reasons.
The current idea of WWE canceling Crown Jewel created the back up plan to replicate the same exact card at Survivor Series. Also meaning WWE would have to pay Shawn Michaels and Brock Lesnar the same amount out of pocket. Politicians are telling WWE to reconsider their deal with Saudi Arabia. Most are encouraging WWE to put event on pause. WWE is currently monitoring the situation.
We live in crazy times. This WWE/Saudi Arabia partnership may not last after all. Sorry, for the shorter blog post but this topic is mind-boggling.
