Wrestlers Reporteldy Plan on Leaving WWE Due to Saudi Arabia Issue

Wrestlers Reporteldy Plan on Leaving WWE Due to Saudi Arabia Issue
The WWE talent finally returned to the United States on Saturday and there are people wondering what will happen backstage at RAW this Monday.

Perhaps nothing will happen and everyone will continue on with business as usual or wrestlers in the locker room will speak up to management. Karl Anderson sent out a cryptic tweet and his wife was adamant about Anderson never going back to Saudi Arabia.

On Sunday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer says he was told that several wrestlers have told him that they are not going back to Saudi Arabia. Others have said that they plan on leaving WWE when their contracts expire.

“I’ve had people say they are never gonna go back. I’ve had people say they can’t wait to get out of the company. I don’t know if that’s going to…maybe in a couple of months they’re gonna change their mind. I don’t know if something is gonna happen at Raw when the Raw talent is all there…”

Meltzer said WWE has been trying to get the talent to record videos to say that it was just a mechanical failure. As noted, AJ Styles did record a video for his Mixer account and claimed that he spoke with the pilot and was told that there really was a mechanical issue.
