A number of sources are reporting that WWE talent have been delayed from departing Saudi Arabia and there is a real concern that a large number of them could miss Friday Night SmackDown.
WWE talent and employees were in Saudi for yesterday's Crown Jewel event and were reportedly stuck on a departing plane for a while. Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that there was an issue with the plane itself.
Vince McMahon, Brock Lesnar, and Hulk Hogan left a while before the majority of talent as they had their own flights.
The same report from Pro Wrestling Sheet notes that a second charter flight has been scheduled to hopefully get talent back on time.
As you can imagine talent will be running on little to no sleep.
We'll keep you updated.
