Not only have WWE Superstars been vocal about the recent travel issues on Twitter, but apparently, some have told the boss they are done with shows in Saudi Arabia.
Crown Jewel was the best of the four shows WWE has staged in Saudi Arabia so far. The first-ever women's match between Natalya and Lacey Evans was historical. Bray Wyatt's Universal Title win at the end of the night was historical. Sadly, both of those things haven't been talked about nearly enough due to the travel issues which took place after the show.
The reports began to filter through when it started to become clear that most of SmackDown's roster wasn't going to make it back in time for Friday night's show. When that came true, the rumor mill kicked into full gear. Three days later and it is still unclear what exactly happened. Superstars got stranded in Saudi Arabia, Vince McMahon left early, Saudi officials owe WWE money. A lot has been said but no one seems entirely sure which parts are true.
What's certain is that some of the Superstars who were left behind are not happy about it. Some have even used social media to let it be known that Crown Jewel will be the last time they go to Saudi Arabia for a show. Plus, according to Brad Shepard of Oh, You Didn't Know, other Superstars have gone directly to McMahon to tell him they won't be going to the Middle East with him anymore.
The list of names rumored to be on that list will have the chairman worried about the future of WWE's shows in Saudi Arabia if there will even be any. Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Rey Mysterio, and Kofi Kingston are among the names reported to have spoken to McMahon since Crown Jewel.
If even half of the reports surrounding the situation turn out to be rooted in truth, chances are none of the WWE locker room will have to worry about traveling to Saudi Arabia ever again. Whether Saudi officials owe WWE money, or those same officials are the ones who want out of the deal, it currently seems unlikely that WWE's twice-yearly trips to the Middle East will continue. We can't say we'd be too broken up about that if we're honest.
