WWE Stars John Cena, Daniel Bryan Not Going To Saudi Arabia Event

Since The New Day has already been champions on a few occasion, The Bar remain the favorites to retain the titles to increase the value of the championship on the blue brand. That process will have to begin soon, so many expected him to lose at Crown Jewel so he could leave and prepare for his return to the octagon.

With the Crown Jewel event, WWE eventually made the decision to go ahead, transparently citing business reasons in their "very hard decision" to proceed with the show.

According to the report, WWE apparently wanted to keep Hogan's return low-key, which is the reason that the location was picked to be in Saudi Arabia.

WWE instead has put Saudi Arabia on mute as backlash spreads against its lucrative long-term deal with a kingdom facing global uproar. However, the call by WWE officials was to have the decision made to quietly list Hogan's name on the WWE website.

Fans can watch it on the WWE Network for £9.99 per month with a free month trial if you subscribe immediately. WWE recently produced a commercial that featured Hogan in it that would have seen his return announced. The Undertaker was booed on Raw when he spoke the words Crown Jewel.

Venice Hit by Worst Flooding in a Decade
The high tide along the final stretch of the race meant participants had to jog through ankle-deep water to complete the course. Much of Italy is under alert for flooding from heavy rains, a problem exacerbated by a lack of maintenance of river beds.

Mexico offers temporary residency for some migrants
Pena Nieto said the plan "is only for those who fulfil Mexican laws" and is a first step toward permanent refuge status. And almost 500 more Hondurans have voluntarily agreed to return to their home country, Mexican officials said.

Look China rich help drive global billionaire wealth to $12.3 trillion
Roughly half of China's new billionaires saw their wealth dip below 10 digits by the end of the year, the report showed. Rates will be higher; we expect the Federal Reserve to hike rates three times next year, so the risk premium is higher.

Seth Rollins will face Bobby Lashley in the first round while Kurt Angle will be up against Dolph Ziggler in the other match from RAW.

It means canceling would hurt the company's bottom line.

The financials are murky but WWE is expected to make between $20 million and $40 million USA per event from two Saudi Arabian shows this year under a 10-year deal.

The first event; April's Greatest Royal Rumble, was heavily criticised for appearing to be little more than a propaganda exercise for Saudi Arabia and how apparently progressive things are now under the current leadership.

On a conference call with shareholders WWE chairman Vince McMahon said: "We're not going to talk a lot about that [Crown Jewel]".

So naturally, the words Saudi Arabia again were not used, by Hulk Hogan or by anyone else at Crown Jewel.
