WWE skewered in HBO's "Last Week Tonight" segment on Saudi Arabia

YouTube

WWE responded to an inquiry from the New York Post concerning multiple reports of employees within the company being very unhappy at having to travel to Saudi Arabia in the current political climate.

HBO host John Oliver called out WWE during a segment on Last Week Tonight about Saudi Arabia, its ties to the United States and the alleged murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Despite the unrest, WWE appears to be sticking to its guns.

Tonight's episode of WWE Raw will see the build for both WWE Evolution and WWE Crown Jewel continue with more World Cup qualifying matches set.

Google has started to ignore Android OS
Apple's got a huge advantage because it designs its own chips, and they're largely purpose-built for the iPhone. Since it is an app that was already available, it should be rolled out to the old Pixel phones soon.

At this moment, Shawn Michaels will end his near 10-year retirement when he teams up with Triple H on November 2 to take on Undertaker and Kane at Crown Jewel.

Layfield was on FOX Business this morning and made it clear that he thinks WWE is making the right decision, despite reports about wrestlers not wanting to go to Saudi Arabia.

They became the target of a blistering, 18-minute report on "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" this past Sunday - which also covered the ongoing political tensions between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, as well as the Khashoggi situation. They are, as Oliver notes, used to drum up positive publicity for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The issue is that WWE's shows in Saudi Arabia are unlike any other foreign house show. Trump said in a video clip of a press conference featured by Oliver. We reported on Friday that several Superstars were unhappy with the situation, and other sites released similar reports later that day and over the weekend. "So the private interests should review, but so should the United States government".
