Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio reported he received comments from unnamed WWE Superstars with negative feedback about WWE's latest trip to Saudi Arabia.
"Most guys don't want to rock the boat. Some guys wanted to go but I heard most didn't think they should go. It was an awfully long trip—one person told me if it was up to him he would never go back again, but it was not up to him so it doesn't matter. And others were just like 'it sucked.'
In addition, Meltzer also commented on the 50-man battle royal:
"There were people who very much understood that the booking was horrible throughout so much of the show. For the guys in the battle royal, it was very much going through the motions because the whole thing was just thrown together. Like I said, there was no showcase spots or anything like that, so people there were kind of not in a great mood that you’re flying in there for this match that can’t be good because there’s no thought put into it. And you’re just there as a piece of meat."
