We noted before how reports suggested that the former Universal Champion Kevin Owens has informed the company that he doesn’t want to go to Saudi Arabia for the Super Showdown event.
Dave Meltzer confirmed these reports during the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and he also revealed the Owens is not the only star not flying to the country.
According to him, Daniel Bryan who didn’t attend the Crown Jewel event last year has confirmed that he wouldn’t be participating in the upcoming Saudi Show either.
Bryan had refused to wrestle at crown jewel last year after the controversy regarding the missing wrestling journalist became a hot topic in social media.
Since he holds the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, this news means that the titles will not be defended at the upcoming show and it’d be interesting to see where Bryan and his partner Rowan defend the championships next.
