Report: Saudi Arabia Prince apparently did not show up for meeting with Vince McMahon

WWE signed a ten year deal with Saudi Arabia to hold events in the country every year. However, it seems unlikely the company will be returning to the country after what transpired following WWE Crown Jewel.

WWE Superstars were not allowed to leave Saudi Arabia for a whole day and were stuck there. This was due to the Prince being upset at Vince McMahon cutting the feed for Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. It was reported earlier that WWE was not paid for the last two shows in Saudi Arabia.

According to a report by Bodyslam.net, Prince Muhammad bin Salman did not show up for a meeting with Vince McMahon. They were going to discuss the payment that is apparently owed to WWE, but that did not happen. McMahon was reportedly “pissed” due to this.

Vince McMahon and other members of WWE’s staff were scheduled to have a private meeting with the Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman and others to discuss their Middle East TV deal […] Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman was said to have no-showed the meeting. This was said to have really “pissed” Vince McMahon off, and subsequently set things in motion.

We will keep you updated on this ongoing matter as we get to know more.

    This is true, although Wind Farms are problematic too, as they kill countless endangered bats & eagles.

    Unfortunately that sounds par for the course, here in PA the energy companies just lease the land for 10yrs at a time, just so they can back out if its not profitable.

    Solar panels require extreme amounts of mining and are impossible to recycle. Windmills kill so many birds they need special approval from the government. The metal used in windmills can not be recycled due to its composite. Additionally, windmills do nothing to reduce energy costs.

    Touche. Sure Vince wants to believe the crown prince does have to listen to him, But yeah, Vinny is just below Mitch and Mitch is only there because he controls the Senate.

  • Philip Norris

    The share holders are going to be pi$$ed try explaining to them how you have already spent that money on contracts for people sitting at home so the competition can’t use them. Kind of like what WCW did to TimeWarner.

    That’s why we need solar panel and wind mill farms. Under Obama we were the world’s leading producer of solar panels, however, China has over taken us, mainly because Trump cut subsidies to help those companies, but cut the taxes on the oil companies.

    Same with windmill farms, most of Northeast Indiana and Northwestern Ohio had farmlands leased to the power companies for windmill farms, and the farmers were making a nice income, the Trump came in cut the program, gave the oil companies tax breaks and well…. those leases on the farmlands started running out, the farmers now have a bunch of these windmills on their property and can’t farm the land or lease it.

    My step father’s family farm is one that has been affected, before the windmills he was able to lease the land to area farmers who farmed it and paid him a percentage of their harvests, now, he can’t even do that, because of the windmills and he was a Trump supporter until Trump undercut the program and then the farmers that are going bankrupt and losing their farms because of his trade war with China.

    Vince should of not had crown jewel in the first place if they owed him millions already stupid stupid. I hope Vince learned his lesson which probably not he seems stupid AF.

    No, we are pushing for alternate fuel sources because the entire world will run out of fossil fuels within 30 years. Electric cars don’t cut it either, since most electricity is generated using those same dwindling fossil fuels

  • MT McGee

    They same reason they were against the release of the Verona papers and covered up the JFK assassination.

  • MT McGee

    Electric cars are next to completely worthless in the northern US due to batteries losing charge in cold weather. Until they can come up with a battery that doesn’t discharge in the cold, it’s not really a practical idea. You can leave your house 3/4 charged in the winter, drive ten minutes away, and almost be out of power.

  • Omar

    He actually didnt. The prince who made the deal is the head of the sports ministry. Thats not the crown prince. In Saudi Arabia all the senior ministers are royal princes. The Crown Prince has not spent his time on doing anything regarding WWE, and wont spend time for these stupid matters, especially during a time when his oil is being targeted by his neighboring countries.

  • F. Loyd B. Pippin

    He gave him the time of day to get the deal done. They got a match with women to show that they are trying to progress in the eyes of the western world. They can not pay Vince anything since they got the footage they wanted and Vince will be blocked from suing them anyway.

  • F. Loyd B. Pippin

    Which is partly why people are pushing for a plan to replace all gas cars with electric cars asap. It probably won’t be done by then, but a move like that would take a big chuck out of what is being spent on oil.

  • Omar

    He may be Trump’s bitch but that doesnt make him anything to another country’s head of state, but less a “Royal” who is a crown prince.

  • Philip Norris

    Which begs the question WHY does OUR government not want the families of 9/11 victims, to sue Saudi Arabia and the government for the TRUTH? Why were Sauds able to fly away when all other planes after the 9/11 attacks were grounded? Why does no one in the government acknowledge that many of the terrorists on 9/11 (what was it like 14 of the 16?) were Saudi citizens?

  • Philip Norris

    As long as Mrs. Vince works for the US President and Vinny is one of the few of Trump’s inner circle that hasn’t betrayed him…. YET.

  • Michael Justin Arnold

    The US Army is already being leased out to him, there will be no Regime changes in S.A. until their oil wells run dry (15-20 years from now)

  • Soulshroude

    Don’t ever trust the Saudi Government it is as corrupt as any government comes.

  • ROB-1.

    WWE should not have started going there anyway.

  • Mike the Ike

    Hopefully the saudi people rise up and throw salman and his supporters in a wood chipper.

  • Mike the Ike

    I would imagine that the WWE network has different servers dedicated to different areas of the world. All they had to do was take the servers serving the middle east offline.

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    Well this could be the beginning of the end of this deal…. but how did Vince “cut the feed”?

  • Omar

    Does Vince really think that the person that is essentially the head of state of a country would give him any time of day? Ha.
