In a mid-October episode of his HBO show, John Oliver accused WWE of giving legitimacy to Saudi Arabia's "wall-to-wall propaganda" and willfully ignoring the kingdom's human rights abuses.
You can officially add Big Show to the list, which isn't altogether that surprising as he will likely be accompanying his new partners in The Bar to ringside for their Smackdown Tag Team Championship defense. There will be a one-hour Kickoff Show beginning on Friday morning at 10CT/11ET.
The WWE is looking to an old friend to help out with perhaps the most controversial event in professional wrestling history.
Since The New Day has already been champions on a few occasion, The Bar remain the favorites to retain the titles to increase the value of the championship on the blue brand.
-Sheamus and Cesaro vs. SmackDown Live is represented by Jeff Hardy vs The Miz and Rey Mysterio vs Randy Orton. Hogan spoke with the WWE locker room in July before an event and his comments were not widely appreciated.
WWE fans might be surprised with Rollins winning the World Cup, but reports have floated around stating Dean Ambrose has been spotted in Saudi Arabia, so he could be used to hinder The Kingslayer's chances of winning, causing another superstar to win the tournament. The kickoff show, for the United States Championship, will start at 8:30 PM.
The event will be live on Sony Ten 1, Sony Ten 1HD (both English) and Ten 3, Ten 3HD (both Hindi).
