The Superstars and Legends of WWE have officially arrived in Saudi Arabia this week for Thursday’s big WWE Crown Jewel 2019 pay-per-view in Riyadh, no thanks to various flight issues that some in the company faced during their respective trips.
WWE’s roster of wrestlers have arrived in Saudi Arabia as of yesterday evening for Crown Jewel.
Notable absences include Triple H and Shane McMahon, both of whom are expected to stay back in North America.
Triple H specifically is going to be running the NXT show later tonight.
Vince McMahon had not arrived in Saudi Arabia with the rest of the roster but was expected to arrive late last night evening, according to PWInsider.com.
McMahon, as previously noted, will miss WWEs third quarter conference call on Thursday with investors as he oversees the Crown Jewel PPV.
Notably, three members of WWE’s women’s roster has also made their way overseas.
Natalya, Lana and Lacey Evans are all in Saudi Arabia but there is zero expectation or suggestions that any of them will be able to compete on the PPV.
It’s possible WWE may use them for promotional appearances instead.
Last year, WWE had Natalya and Alexa Bliss on the tour and were seemingly led on by the Saudi government in terms of possibly having the two wrestle; however, on the day of the event, the idea was completely nixed.
Additionally, as we reported earlier this week here at eWrestling.com, Hulk Hogan faced some airplane issues that could have been disasterous, but thankfully for “The Hulkster” he managed to get off the plane he was on that was malfunctioning. He managed to catch a seat on the airplane that was bringing WWE Champion Brock Lesnar to Riyadh for his showdown against fellow former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez at Crown Jewel.
