Several wrestlers plan on leaving WWE when their contracts expire due to Saudi Arabia issue



As noted earlier, there are plenty of unhappy WWE Superstars after the flight issues in Saudi Arabia. The talent returned to the United States on Saturday and there are people wondering what will happen backstage at Monday Night Raw.

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.

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.
