In Saudi Arabia, two notable things happened.

1. Lacey Evans and Natalya has the first ever women’s match in Saudi Arabia.

This will undoubtedly be overshadowed by the next point in the short term:


2. A large portion of the WWE staff, including superstars, were prevented from leaving the country. It has been revealed by a wwe staffer that Vince Mcmahon got into an argument with Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman over money. Vince ordered the feed to the show cut, and the delay was the retaliation of MBS as an intimidation tactic.

Smackdown was changed up as a result of the missing stars, and it featured many NXT stars plus some superstars who had refused to go to Saudi Arabia, or were banned from travel, including Daniel Bryan and Sami Zayn.

This might be the last WWE show in Saudi Arabia as an increasing number of superstars will not work there again.

As well, if Vince had any integrity, the last consideration for a show in Saudi Arabia would have been the brutal assassination of Jamal Khashoggi.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

This latest Saudi Arabia trip is an even bigger disaster than first reported:

WWE Superstars were not permitted to leave Saudi Arabia as planned after Crown Jewel. Many of them feel as though they were used in a “power play.”

The story of Superstars pulling their resources and getting a charter flight out of the country was “bullsh*t.” WWE paid for that flight, but it didn’t get them back in time for SmackDown.

Dave Meltzer further explained during Wrestling Observer Radio that this entire situation has caused WWE Superstars to not only say they’re not going back to Saudi Arabia, but they are also wanting to leave WWE all together.

Not surprised one bit. I have absolutely zero respect for Saudi Arabia and I stopped watching WWE's main roster a few months back for bullshit like this. No respect, no desire to make a good product, and Saudi blood money. fuck WWE. AEW is where it's at.

I do most my wrestling talk on Facebook but I have to say that Smackdown was awesome! I assume they were saving the NXT invasion for later but had no choice but to do it now. Either way, it was great. And the main roster could say "Our big guns were still overseas. When they get home, it's war!"
In any case, I'm super hyped for NXT and I imagine the ratings are gonna get a big jump, too.

Smackdown was quite good, but IMO it felt like a bit of a taste of what NXT does nearly every single week.

Anyway, on that Saudi Arabia trip, I think it's only a matter of time when that event is held with the same notoriety as the flight from hell, the Montreal screwjob, and the steroid scandal. This is something WWE is going to desperately try to cover-up (maybe not cover-up so much as minimalize the significance), particularly due to their involvement with the Saudi Vision 2030 propaganda campaign. I don't see the WWE being very successful in this because WWE superstars are going to be more vocal in the future about not wanting to go.

So, the past few weeks on AEW, we've seen the arrival of "The Alien" Kris Statlander. After being impressed with her few matches in AEW, and watching some of her indie work on Youtube, she is by far one of the greatest female wrestlers that i've ever seen. The best that AEW currently has as well, imo.
