WWE’s upcoming pay-per-view event Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia is in serious jeopardy due to the pressure mounting from the Khashoggi murder case. A final decision is expected to be reached on Wednesday regarding what WWE plans to do with the show.

According to Barstool Sports‘ Robbie Fox, WWE is scouting new locations for the November 2nd Crown Jewel show. This isn’t a confirmation that the company is taking a step back from Saudi Arabia. However, it’s pretty evident that the mounting pressure has forced WWE to consider this decision.

It’s no secret that Saudi Arabia is paying WWE a bank to host Crown Jewel after the extremely successful April’s Greatest Royal Rumble. If Crown Jewel does end up taking place in Said Arabia, it would be the second show as per the 10-year agreement between the Saudi General Sports Authority and WWE.

However, if the show is moved, WWE will end up facing huge losses as the company would still have to pay lump sum salaries to big names like The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and the returning Shawn Michaels.

It all began when US journalist Jamal Khashoggi was reportedly murdered inside the Saudi Consulate on October 2, 2018. Jamal went missing ever since but ahead of his disappearance, he was reporting for The Washington Post that has published several stories on Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Hell broke loose when CNN reported that as per a Turkish official’s confirmation, Khashoggi was cut into pieces.

A few big-time WWE icons namely Randy Orton, Kevin Nash, JBL have sided with WWE in its decision to continue with Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

Larger-than-life Superstars namey John Cena and Daniel Bryan are refusing to work the show if it takes place in Saudi Arabia. There are many Superstars on the main roster who are also reluctant to board the flight to Saudi Arabia.
