WWE responded to an inquiry from the New York Post concerning multiple reports of employees within the company being very unhappy at having to travel to Saudi Arabia in the current political climate.

"We are now monitoring the situation".

U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) has chimed in with some advice of his own regarding WWE's decision to partner with the Saudi Arabian government for the upcoming Crown Jewel pay-per-view.

However, according to the Wrestling Observer Live, Michael's final chapter as an in-ring competitor could be off if WWE is forced to cancel Crown Jewel.

The WWE "Crown Jewel" event in Saudi Arabia scheduled next month has come under fire in light of recent headlines regarding Saudi Arabia's leaders being accused of being behind the disappearance and feared murder of a US based journalist critical of Saudi Arabia. Oliver also cited John Cena thanking the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during a promo at Greatest Royal Rumble as an example of WWE's miscues in the Middle East.

During Sunday night's episode of Last Week Tonight on HBO, show host John Oliver took WWE to task over its involvement in Saudi Arabia and took specific aim at WWE creating propaganda pieces to help promote the country's "progressive" movements. We reported on Friday that several Superstars were unhappy with the situation, and other sites released similar reports later that day and over the weekend. "I'd hope that they would be rethinking their relationship with the kingdom especially with respect to events coming up in the next weeks like (the WWE Crown Jewel)", Murphy told the IJR.
