WWE gets online criticism again for going to Saudi Arabia for third show
WWE has gotten some flack again, as expected, for the decision to go back to Saudi Arabia next month for their third show in the country. The announcement came via a press release issued yesterday.
So far, Wall Street has not reacted negatively to the news unlike last year when the company made the trip despite the gruesome murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi a few weeks before.
Apart from securing the services of The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar to be part of this third show, WWE also reached out to Goldberg to appear. Goldberg has accepted and already replied to some tweets online which mentions him and the Saudi show. Saudi Arabia is not very keen to Jewish people but they do allow them to work in the country and it’s interesting that Goldberg even accepted to be part of the show considering the history. Paul Heyman, also Jewish, appeared in both previous shows in Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, while speaking with The Pro Wrestling Show podcast in the UK, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley said that while he’s lucky he doesn’t have to make a choice of going or not going, “I can be had for a certain price!” Foley continued, “If they wanted a rematch of the Cell badly enough and were willing to pay for it, then my God they’d probably get it!”
