WWE Responds To Reported Dissent Amongst Talent Roster Over Crown Jewel

Crown Jewel U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal Calls On WWE To ‘Recognize On Its Own A Conscience And Conviction

The WWE has been expanding into Saudi Arabia, hosting a major event earlier this year which was marked by controversy over showing women wrestlers during a promotional segment.

The event, particularly the Crown Jewel, will earn the WWE a significant payday if it goes ahead, however United States politicians have been urging sanctions against Saudi Arabia in light of the situation.

Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center: "http://www.niwrc.org/donate-niwrc", Warren tweeted. But as Warren mulls a presidential run in 2020, her Senate re-election campaign produced a video playing up the results.

A titanic tussle was set for Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 2 - D-Generation X against the Brothers of Destruction. The issue is that WWE's shows in Saudi Arabia are unlike any other foreign house show. Khashoggi entered a Saudi Arabian consulate to pick up paperwork that would allow him to re-marry and has not been seen since.

Surprisingly, the two teams haven't crossed paths in their illustrious careers, and they still might not in the originally-planned location, with plans up-in-the-air after WWE's relationship with the Saudi Government was questioned by U.S. Senators this week. 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".

‘More awareness needed on mental health’
Schools will also be given help to measure their students' health, including their mental wellbeing, under the plans. Yet average global spend on mental health is just 2.8 per cent of government health spending worldwide.

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

None of the company's female performers were allowed appear, due to the limited rights for women in Saudi Arabia - this was particularly at odds with the WWE's current PR push for their women's division.
