WWE's recent trip to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel didn't come without some intense criticism following the capture and murder of a Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
There were serious talks at one stage about canceling the event and moving it to the U.S. and both John Cena and Daniel Bryan opted not to make the trip over. One name who felt WWE made the right decision to go to Saudi is WWE Hall Of Famer Scott Hall who spoke to The Hannibal TV to give his thoughts on the matter and his desire for the nWo to head to Saudi next time.
“Well, Kevin and I just did an nWo Reunion last weekend at Hulk’s Beach Shop in Orlando with WWE’s blessing”, said Hall. “It’s the first time Hulk’s been welcomed back into the fold, and I’m happy he’s back. There’s a lot of backlash (regarding WWE Crown Jewel) but I saw JBL on a show last weekend talking about… by boycotting stuff, that doesn’t solve anything.
“He used Cuba as a reference. We boycotted Cuba forever, and what did that get us? Nothing. Nothing changed there. The people, their quality of life never improved. So I agree with that. Staying away is not the answer. Plus we’re not a bunch of politicians.
“We’re entertainers, we’re ‘rasslers’, we’re not involved in all that global stuff. That’s the way I look at it. I’d be happy to go Vince. If you want to bring the nWo over there the next time, let me know.”
