Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re likely caught up on the big story of the week surrounding WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 2nd.
The alleged murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi officials (check the story out here) has led to a lot of fans clamoring for the show to be cancelled and another round of threats by WWE Network subscribers that they will no longer be paying customers should the event go on in its current location. Also, a number of United States Senators have called for WWE to at minimum, “rethink the relationship” (find that story here). Meanwhile, WWE’s only comments on the matter have been that they are “monitoring the situation”.
In some interesting news today, the link to purchase tickets and location have been removed from WWE.com which has led many to believe this is an indication the show will be heading someplace else or even cancelled altogether.
It should be noted there has been some talk that matches scheduled for Crown Jewel could be pushed back to Survivor Series on November 18th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Of course, Crown Jewel currently has the World Cup tournament, Triple Threat for the Universal Title featuring Brock Lesnar’s next match and the big Brothers Of Destruction vs. D-Generation X match scheduled as of today.
