    Several United States senators, including Chris Murphy of WWE's home state of Connecticut, have urged WWE to rethink the Crown Jewel show on November 2 in Saudi Arabia.


    "I'd hope that they would be rethinking their relationship with the kingdom, especially with respect to events coming up in the next few weeks," said Murphy in an article by the Independent Journal Review's William Steakin.


    "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."


    Murphy is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.


    Lindsey Graham, a senator from South Carolina, said, "There should be a pause," in regard to the company's business dealings with Saudi Arabia.


    Graham has suggested a complete rethinking of the U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia based on news reports on the death of Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist believed to have been violently murdered over being critical of the kingdom.


    Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey told IJR that he believes, because of the relationship between Donald Trump and Linda McMahon, that Trump should think about pressuring WWE not to do the show.


    "Private enterprise is private enterprise, different than a governmental entity," said Menendez. "But because (Linda McMahon) is part of the president's cabinet, it falls into the grey area where the administration really should give it some thought and maybe even prevail upon them not doing it."


    WWE is currently monitoring the situation. There have been backup plans that are being talked about internally if the show doesn't take place.

    Good ... its asinine that WWE would go there & be positive propaganda

    Meh the US government deals with Saudi forever and they've been doing worse shit than killing journalists. Why should WWE turn down Saudi money when their own government doesn't?

    And why punish the Saudi wrestling fans for what their government allegedly did?

    its more complicated than that
    The government is who is paying WWE & part of the payment includes promoting the government propaganda
    It is also very hypocritical for WWE (a company that brags about their use of woman, etc.) to be promoting Saudi's opposite views.

    Somewhat related:

    Endeavor, the parent company of the UFC, pulled out of its $400 million deal with the Saudi government.
    The government had made a deal to invest $400 million for a stake in the company. The Hollywood Reporter had a story that said paperwork is being drawn up for Endeavor to terminate that deal.

    It's a lot easier to speak out when you don't need the WWE's money.

    I'm sorry it went way over your head, but it was an alliteration to 'fake news'.

    "If World Wrestling Entertainment were to abandon its long-term deal with Saudi Arabia, that move could dent the company’s 2019 operating income by between $12 million and $16 million, according to a report from a Wall Street analyst.

    Eric Handler of MKM Partners maintains a buy rating on the stock, with a 12-month price target of $95. It closed today’s trading session at $83.98, down a fraction. Handler estimates a decision to delay or cancel the wrestling circuit’s November 2 “Crown Jewel" event in Saudi Arabia, or move it out of the country, could cause a $2 million-$3 million hit to fourth-quarter cash flow."

    Cena was confirmed by Meltzer & Alvarez. They were told that they were waiting on Wednesday to see if there is a show to even take him off of

    WWE confirms Crown Jewel will be held in Saudi Arabia.

    This should be interesting.

    "WWE superstar Ronda Rousey said moving the Crown Jewel event out of Saudi Arabia would be the "wrong move" Friday.

    "Women can't compete in Saudi Arabia right now, but I think if the 'Crown Jewel' is a huge success, and WWE really takes off in Saudi Arabia, they're going to be demanding to see the women soon," she said."

    I don't see it happening.

    Trump / Vince two old buddies - both Satan worshippers ...

    Everything WWE does these days is heavily dipped in the occult

    Wouldn’t doubt WWE will let the Saudis sacrifice one or many of their wrestlers - sending the US into a frenzy and allowing for Military action to finally dethrone the House of Saud and give full control to Israel.

    *boogyman attack takes out WWE superstars
    *US / Isreal uses attack to gain support for military action against Saudi Arabia
    *US / Isreal attack and dethrone the Saudis - immediatey put in a Rothschild owned Central Bank

    There it is...conspiracy for the week.

    There's one onion in the ointment. The UN is hardline anti Israel.

    The only problem is that idea is counter-intuitive. The UN and the Islamic middle east are much, much larger than the U.S. and Israel. I'm wondering if maybe you're falling for the old Kansas City shuffle.

    Most poeple see things from a first person point of view - with limited information, this blurs their perspective of the situation at hand. So sometimes we have to lift people up and elevate their point of view ...let them float along with stars in the skies and get that aerial point of view so they can see the big picture of things....


    Henry Kissinger back in 2011 basically told the World the plans of the New World Order in this quick clip:



    Or we watch This speech was back in 2007 by Wesley Clark -- he never mentioned Saudi Arabia -- but we must understand since 9/11 the Global takeover has been in overdrive - taking out old nations and replacing them with Rothschild Central Banks - they are taking over the World -- and that includes the United States which they are destroying from within ...using the media to keep the people distracted and bickering among themselves.







    WWE will be used to initiate their takeover of Saudi Arabia ...

    Just think about the name "Crown Jewel".....Saudi Arabia is the Crown Jewel of the Middle East ...and now finally they (Illuminati) are coming for the prized possession.
