WWE is going all out with their Saudi Arabian deal. After all, they are getting a ton of money pumped into the company. But it seems with a name like Hulk Hogan attached to this next Crown Jewel event, there could be another big name in the works.
Ric Flair obviously couldn’t travel to Saudi Arabia for the Greatest Royal Rumble because he still had some lingering things he had to deal with from his medical crisis. But he’s all better now from what we can see and he’s not only working out now but also looking like he’s in great spirits.
Joe Peisich said on Barnburner’s No Holds Barred podcast that although it’s yet to be 100% confirmed that it is a lock, he’s heard some serious rumors about The Nature Boy’s involvement in Crown Jewel.
“I even heard today and I tried to confirm this before we started taping but I heard Ric Flair will be in Saudi Arabia also, so that should be interesting also.”
It seems like Ric Flair would be well received in Saudi Arabia. After all, the Prince who booked the Greatest Royal Rumble requested a ton of names from his era of wrestling. It might come down to whether Flair is medically okay to make the trip after all his doctors are still a huge part of his life. But it looks promising that we’ll at least see Ric Flair wave to the Saudi crowd at Crown Jewel.
