Hulk Hogan Returns to WWE Ring in Saudi Arabia

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

SmackDown hero Bryan and Cena, a huge name in both Raw and SmackDown, were written out of their Crown Jewel matches after taking a stand over Khashoggi's death.

Many believe Saudi Arabia's dubious record on women's rights makes it an inappropriate choice, given the WWE claims to be in favour of empowering women.

That Hogan made his on-screen return at the "Crown Jewel" pay-per-view only makes things more controversial, though. Unlike the previous event (WWE Greatest Royal Rumble), Crown Jewel has needed the WWE to clarify their position on hosting of event in Riyadh following the killing of a journalist allegedly by the Saudi government.

In a statement to HuffPost, WWE declined to discuss the specific reasons for the absence of Cena and Bryan, saying only that "we maintain an open line of communication with our performers and will address each situation accordingly".

SmackDown First Round: Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy vs.

However, The Champ was ultimately replaced by his WWE Super Show-Down partner Bobby Lashley. WWE never said "Saudi Arabia" but the fact that the New Day arrived to the ring on a flying carpet was a pretty big clue of their location.

The 41-year-old is biding his time in WWE as he serves a doping ban from the UFC, which ends in January 2019. The kickoff show, for the United States Championship, will start at 8:30 PM. "So whatcha gonna do when the power of Hulkamania and the power of Crown Jewel run wild on you?"
