They are doing everything to fly under the radar (as much as possible) by not mentioning Saudi Arabia on their TV shows or on their social media accounts but their latest post on Instagram is drawing criticism from many fans.
The post shows a picture of The Undertaker’s urn with the DX logo spray painted on it. The photo includes the caption that reads, “Respect is out the window at #WWECrownJewel.”
“Absolutely tone deaf caption. Social media bod, have words with yourself,” one fan said in the comments section of the post. Another person wrote, “Cancel the network if wwe does not cancel crown jewel.”
Another fan wrote, “Saudi Arabia was responsible for 9-11, WWE took a stand then, that Smackdown after 9-11 was amazing, I’m from NY, WWE is pretty American and it’s very upsetting they are still planning on going to Saudi Arabia after this #cancelcrownjewel”
Some fans said they still plan on watching the show but there seemed to be an overwhelming amount of comments bashing WWE for moving forward with the show.
