Former WWE Spanish commentator Hugo Savinovich has revealed source details behind why WWE Superstars were delayed from returning to the United States from Saudi Arabia on Thursday, which lead to the majority of them missing Friday Night SmackDown.
WWE's story was the plane that the talent were using to travel back on from the Crown Jewel event had mechanical issues, but Savinovich, who has connections with top sources in WWE revealed that Vince McMahon hasn't been paid for two events in Saudi Arabia, and the figure owed is reported to be in the millions of dollars.
McMahon reportedly retaliated by cutting off the live feed for Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. The Crown Prince was so irate by this decision he had WWE Superstars taken off the Altlas Air flight just before it was due to depart. There were rumors yesterday that something else other than mechanical issues but nothing concrete could be confirmed until now.
Savinovich noted that mechanical issues were just a cover and McMahon could have paid to charter another flight right away to get talent home in time for SmackDown in Buffalo. The issues were all to do with the Saudi Crown Prince.
You can listen to what Savinovich said below (it is in Spanish) and he also talks about the sad passing of his wife, which is rather emotional.
