He also showed clips of all the positive things said about the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during the event. However, their first show from Saudi Arabia, the Greatest Royal Rumble, did such great numbers, plus the fans really enjoyed it.

WWE's Crown Jewel marks the company's return to Saudi Arabia and is still set to take place on November 2nd, despite reports indicating that Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi may have been assassinated by the Saudi regime, a repeated violator of human rights.

He fled the country in September 2017, and has not been since after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told BBC News that he was anxious disappearances like this were becoming the "new normal".

Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Reportedly Split, End Engagement
Their engagement has been called off, and the former lovers have also chose to end their romantic relationship. Meanwhile, another source told People magazine, "It was way too much too soon". "It's not shocking to anyone".

If wrestlers with the WWE are indeed expressing "discomfort" with plans to perform in Saudi Arabia next month, as an anonymous-sourced Sports Illustrated article says today, last night's excoriating report by HBO's John Oliver could only have pumped them up even more.

As we previously reported, U.S. Senators have called for WWE to re-think the relationship due to the alleged assassination. Chris Murphy telling Independent Journal Review: "This is a brazen assault on the freedom of the press and a slap in the face to the United States, if this murder occurred as it seems it did".

The WWE event, however, is still going ahead as a statement released by Vince McMahon only mentioned that the WWE is "monitoring the situation".

The Last Week Tonight host dedicated an entire segment to the wealthy middle eastern country, and the WWE's connection to the Kingdom was brought up.
