”The WWE travel going to and coming back from Australia was said to be more hectic for some than others. The WWE travel to Australia for some saw stops in California, Hawaii and then ultimately Australia. On the way back home, there were some talents that ended up taking four-or-five legs of a flight to get to their respective destinations.”
