WWE Superstars were kept in Saudi Arabia after Crown Jewel and they believe that their lives were used in a power play. Vince McMahon and the Saudi Arabian Prince had a disagreement over money and that seems to be all we know for sure.
We previously reported via Brad Shepard that Renee Young was yelled at in Saudi Arabia by their “religious police.” This was denied at the time, but Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that he has heard some crazy stories since Superstars returned this time. That opens the possibility of any number of insane stories about Saudi Arabia being true.
“It’s a really tense story and then the other part is I have heard so many different stories. I don’t know what’s true and what’s not from different people about different things that have happened there on previous trips that we had never heard that either didn’t happen, but everyone on talent now thinks that did or did happen and everyone thinks was covered up.”
“I can easily believe that considering the lengths they’re trying and everything that’s gone down in this situation. So, it sounds like it’s really bad. The stories were really, really bad. I don’t know how bad those stories really were, bu the talent were spreading that around or someone was, you know there’s some really bad stuff. I’m sure that it was… whatever… it’s just a real tense situation.”
We’ll have to see what else comes out of this situation. It’s also likely that WWE will have a few Superstars refusing to go back to Saudi Arabia again. This is just the second year of a ten-year agreement so we might have eight more years of this story ahead of us.
