WWE’s relationship with Saudi Arabia from the start has been controversial. After the death of a prominent journalist at a Saudi embassy many fans vocalized their distaste of WWE not canceling last year’s Crown Jewel. Some superstars even distanced themselves from show as seen when John Cena dropped out of a multi-man tag team match.
Looks like more stars are putting their name on the list of wrestlers who do not want to return to Saudi Arabia after this last weeks travel issues stemming from either mechanical failure or a spat between the Saudi prince and Vince McMahon. Names such as Roman Reigns, Kofi Kingston, Andrade, Bruan Stroman, and Rey Mysterio have expressed to Vince that they don’t want return the country.
Other rumblings are Vince and the Saudi Prince had an argument over the fact WWE hasn’t been paid for the last two events that were held and even that Saudi Arabia are looking to possibly end their 10 year deal with WWE.
Curious to see how this whole debacle shakes out in the coming week.
