While Vince McMahon decided not to comment on the issue further then their released statement, Stephanie McMahon talked about WWE moving forward with Crown Jewel in a little more detail.
Stephanie was recently interviewed by Sky News ahead of yesterday’s Crown Jewel event and when asked about their decision to hold Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, Stephanie said that it was a tough decision:
“Moving forward with Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia was an incredibly tough decision, given that heinous act, But, at the end of the day, it is a business decision and, like a lot of other American companies, we decided that we’re going to move forward with the event and deliver Crown Jewel for all of our fans in Saudi Arabia and around the world.”
Though it appears that WWE won’t get away with this decision easily and as we noted before, fans heavily booed a Crown Jewel promo during the Evolution PPV.
Now the big question is if the whole situation will turn out like the walkout of CM Punk where fans will remind the company about their decision for a long time? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
