Vince McMahon is said to be adamant about the show still going forward in Saudi Arabia but the decision appears to be out of his hands because there are people outside of the company pressuring them not to go.
Dave Meltzer elaborated on the situation in a post on the Wrestling Observer Forum.
“It’s no longer up to Vince,” Meltzer said on Tuesday. “Vince will never make the decision not to go. He’s too far out of touch now.”
He continued, “Company is hoping to get word tomorrow if they can still go. There’s a reason tickets aren’t on sale. Because they’ve been told you may not be allowed to go.”
If the show moves to a different location then that means John Cena will likely wrestle in the World Cup as advertised. The creative team was told on Monday that Cena would not be going to Saudi Arabia and Robbie Fox from Barstool Sports reported that Daniel Bryan was also refusing to go if the show was still taking place in Saudi Arabia.
We’ll pass along updates on the status of the show as soon as we get them.
