It would appear that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is under threat of an attack, with WWE Crown Jewel set to take place there this weekend.
According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Saudi Arabia has shared intelligence with the United States about an imminent threat to the Kingdom.
We are concerned about the threat picture, and we remain in constant contact through military and intelligence channels with the Saudis,” said a National Security Council spokesperson. “We will not hesitate to act in the defense of our interests and partners in the region.
As a result of this, Saudi Arabia, the United States and a number of their neighbouring countries have seemingly “raised the level of alert for their military forces”.
There has been no statement from regarding WWE Crown Jewel from the company, with the event set to take place this Saturday, 5th November. However, it will no doubt be seen as the safety of the superstars and crew being of paramount importance if the threats were to escalate.
WWE is also set to hold its quarterly financials call tomorrow, Wednesday 2nd November, and this could be an opportunity to gain an insight in to whether the event is in jeopardy.
The main event of the show is set to see Roman Reigns defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Logan Paul. Along with the contests signed for the event, it has also recently been confirmed that Bray Wyatt will be in attendance following his return to WWE.
