WWE and Saudi Arabia are in bed for 10 years and there is an estimated $1 billion on the table. There is also a ton of added pressure from all over to cancel the event or at least move it due to recent events.
But it seems WWE is carrying on with the pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia and as Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio, it will take a lot for WWE to actually cancel the show.
“What I was actually told is unless the state department tells them they can’t go or Donald Trump tells them they can’t go — they’re going.”
So it looks like they’re going to have to make a lot more noise and have some very big people step in before WWE will consider canceling this event after all. Because we’ve already seen some US politicians come forward but apparently, that’s not quite going to be enough.
So it looks like Crown Jewel is still on and it’s going to be in Saudi Arabia after all. How do you feel about it, and are you still excited to see this loaded card go down?
