“I did not get the call,” Swoggle said. “I would’ve been there in a heartbeat.”
The event was held on the heels of revelations that Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman had ordered the execution and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist, and US resident, Jamal Khashoggi. Khashoggi, an outspoken critic of the Crown Prince, was killed on Oct. 2nd at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Despite the murder, and Saudi Arabia’s myriad of human rights violations committed by the Saudi government, the WWE/KSA relationship is a highly-profitable one. Swoggle commented on WWE’s decision to go ahead with the Nov. 2nd show in Riyadh:
“Whatever people want to do, [it’s] their call.”
