WWE Superstars had a lot to talk about after they got home from Saudi Arabia. There was reportedly a meeting to address some of these concerns before Raw, but we’re not sure what was said.

We previously reported via a Reddit post that there was a backstage meeting where Seth Rollins gave an “awkward” speech. Dave Meltzer later confirmed this report as he wrote:

“The company blamed talent speculation for causing a problem, the talent was told the flight issues were all mechanical and nothing more, and Seth Rollins attempted to do a rah-rah speech while telling people to keep things like this off social media in the future. “

Seth Rollins shot back an angry tweet calling the Wrestling Observer Newsletter writer out for not having the facts straight.


Brad Shepard is now reporting that Rollins didn’t give a “locker room leader” speech before Raw. In fact, the content of the meeting is a big question as well.

According to a source in #WWE, there was not a meeting in which talent speculation was blamed for the situation in Saudi Arabia, and @WWERollins did not give a “locker room leader” speech about keeping grapevines off of social media.

This entire WWE situation with Saudi Arabia is a big question mark right now. The company does have plans to return next year, but it’s unclear which Superstars will be game to make the trip again.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
