WWE superstars were aware they should not have gone to Saudi Arabia for WWE Super Showdown

WWE Super Showdown concluded this past Friday and this was the third WWE event in Saudi Arabia. WWE will carry on two shows per year in Saudi Arabia for their ten-year deal.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that despite hearing that some superstars did have a supposedly pleasant time, most of the WWE superstars who went to the Super ShowDown agreed they it was better if they hadn’t gone to Saudi Arabia again.

Meltzer knows some people who went had a good time, but others thought it sucked and most of the people knew they shouldn’t have gone. He says that most of them didn’t want to rock the boat and didn’t want to make the very long trip, certainly not again, but the decision to go isn’t up to them it doesn’t matter. The wrestlers also knew the booking was poor and the battle royal participants were just going through the motions.

While Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan could say they had no desire to go to Saudi Arabia, others were not as fortunate owing to their position in the company.

For the most part, no direct acknowledgement regarding any dissatisfaction with Saudi Arabia was made.

    Don’t worry, WWE is already having to backtrack and hide they fact they are doing business with these savages after the murder of Koshogi. If history is any indication, there will be another incident that forces WWE to pull the plug on the deal.

    So everyone has to endure this twice a year for 9 more years..??? Good grief.

    I agree. Those guys have enough stroke that WWE can’t afford to punish everybody after the fact. The saudis want to spend all that blood money for a show? Let them get Lio Rush vs Superstar Billy Graham in the main event with Triple H vs Mike Kanellis underneath.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Well it’s WWEs own fault for going to a corrupt crap hole like Saudi Arabia in the first place

    There is a lot of people who could say no to going who have gone, so while the bottom of the card guys might not have any say in it, are we really to believe that the likes of Kofi, The Uso’s. Rollins, Miz & Balor etc would not have the power to veto going if someone like Owens can manage it?

    I’m sorry, but if enough of these guys get together and refuse to go, what is WWE gonna do?
    They ain’t gonna be firing anyone right now, and with the lower card guys like No Way Jose for instance, how worse can WWE treat him than they already do?
