John Cena’s Status Remains Unchanged, Refuses To Go To Saudi Arabia For Crown Jewel

It was reported yesterday that WWE is proceeding with Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia amidst the huge backlash and mounting pressure from fans, talent and US Senators arising out of the Khashoggi murder case.

WWE’s decision was revealed as part of it’s Q3 2018 Results citing “contractual obligations” and an effort to ensure “2018 guidance” stays on schedule financially” as the valid grounds on which the decision to continue with Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia was made.

16-time World Champion John Cena’s status for the show remains unchanged following yesterday’s press release. It was reported on Monday that Cena and Daniel Bryan have refused to work Crown Jewel if it takes place in Saudi Arabia.

Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports now confirms that Cena is “100% off the show” while a confirmation on part of Bryan awaits.

ProWrestling‘s John Pollock reported that WWE had hopes of coming to terms with Cena and convincing him for the show but the Leader of Cenation continues to stand strong with his decision.

It would be interesting how WWE explains Cena’s absence given he is one of the 8 Superstars scheduled to compete at the inaugural WWE World Cup at Crown Jewel.

It’s no secret that Saudi Arabia is paying bank to WWE for hosting Crown Jewel after the highly successful April’s Greatest Royal Rumble. Crown Jewel, the second show as per the 10-year agreement between the Saudi General Sports Authority and WWE, will emanate from the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh on November 2, 2018.

Cena’s absence will definitely prove to be very costly for WWE given top RAW star and immediate ex-Universal Champion Roman Reigns is on an indefinite leave to fight his battle against leukemia. If Bryan pulls out, Crown Jewel could be in serious trouble.
