From the Wrestling Observer
Friday June, 7
The first eight wrestlers have been advertised for next month’s show, with Goldberg the most notable name among them. It’s also advertised that the event will feature Roman Reigns, The Undertaker, Kofi Kingston, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, and Brock Lesnar.
Wow, kind of ironic that one of the headliners on the next Saudi show is Jewish. Isn’t there quite a lot of Antisemitism there?
Saudi is anti-everything thats not Muslim. But Jews are particularly singled out. If you have an Israeli stamp on your passport you can’t go into Saudi which is why Sami Zayn hasn’t been on the trips.
As former legendary tag team Cryme Tyme used to say… “Its all about that money money, yeah yeah”
Sami Zayn is a Muslim Syrian-Canadian, not Israeli. He doesn’t travel because of the conflicts between Syria and Saudi Arabia rather than antisemitism.
Money and power trumps everything. Case in point: Saudi Crown Prince is best buds with devoutly Jewish Trump son in law Jared Kushner.
Yay…it’s that time again when we all pretend to be outraged about Saudi Arabia and constantly talk about it until it’s over and we bitch about creative again and showing that we really didn’t care Saudi Arabia at all. …again.
It’s possible that we are outraged, and can bitch about creative. Let’s just be happy we’re free to say whatever we want without the religious police taking us away.
LOL…maybe people should bring up Saudi Arabia and their prince when this company isn’t holding a show there …then maybe I’ll buy this.
Seems like moral grandstanding if anything.
Well, at least the show can’t be any worse than the last one.
Can’t wait! This is going to great seeing UT and Goldberg finally back along with Brock. I love how they bring out all the surprises!
Who else do you guys see being there ?
Ric and Hogan?
I think we may see
Rollins vs Brock rematch
UT vs Goldberg
HHH and Shawn vs New day
Tons of possibilities! Lets brainstorm!
Roman Vs Goldberg or don’t book Bill.
Here’s a question - do they bring back Bill for TV with ratings trash and him doing a match? Are Saudi shows WWE cannon or just something that happen somewhere?
I think he comes back to TV - Bill vs Roman will be incredible. Dream match. So pumped for this show way more than dana Brooke in MITB nonsense
