In an update from our earlier report on Sunday, a number of sources within WWE has indicated to PWInsider that the company is still planning to hold the Crown Jewel event on November 2 in Saudi Arabia from King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh.
Despite an earlier report stating the show was removed from WWE’s live event calendar online, the show is now being listed, but without any details on a specific location. So it would appear WWE is doing it all it can avoid any references to Saudi Arabia.
John Oliver reportedly did a segment about WWE’s partnership with the Saudi Arabian government on his “Last Week Tonight” HBO show on Sunday night.
Wrestleview will continue provide updates on this situation as it becomes available.
