Some airplane issues almost kept Hulk Hogan from making it to Saudi Arabia for this Thursday's WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Riyadh.
The WWE roster left for Saudi Arabia yesterday immediately after Raw in preparation for Crown Jewel, which takes place on Thursday, October 31.
It seems Hulk Hogan's plane had some technical problems (according to Hogan's Facebook, the tires blew out upon landing) and he was almost stranded in Iceland, however, Brock Lesnar and his private plane were also in Iceland at the same time so Hogan (and Jimmy Hart) hopped in with Lesnar to carry on to Saudi Arabia.
WWE will hold their third quarter conference call with investors on Thursday morning at 11 AM ET but CEO Vince McMahon will reportedly not be there as he'll be in Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel.
