Oliver mentioned the reports about John Cena pulling out of the show. He also pointed out the crowd turning on The Undertaker during Smackdown 1000 when he mentioned Crown Jewel.

Oliver dedicated around 10 minutes to Saudi Arabia on the show on Sunday night. This is not the kind of publicity WWE wanted when they struck the deal with Saudi Arabia but they are moving forward with the show, despite the backlash from the fans and the media.
