Welcome to a tale of Vince McMahon's Terrible, Horrible, No
Good, Very Bad Day ...

The basic facts are known. After Crown Jewel, which notably
featured the first women's match in Saudi history with Lacey
Evans and Nattie Neidhart...150-170 WWE wrestlers, and
production staff were prevented from leaving the Kingdom of
Saudi Arabia as a group until late Friday US time.

Meanwhile, there was a live Smackdown on FOX that somehow
had to take place in Buffalo, NY.

Vince McMahon, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman were among those
who got out of the KSA on a private jet. Another group of 20
wrestlers who on their own tried to make it to Smackdown
chartered their own jet...but with delays weren't able to
make it to the show.

A Smackdown made up of NXT talent, women who didn't make the
Saudi trip (for obvious reasons), talent who managed to get
out and to Buffalo, and Bryan Danielson who has refused to
work the Saudi shows turned out to be one of the best RAW or
Smackdown shows this year was the result, with a great Adam
Cole-Daniel Bryan main event...all became a part of getting
over NXT as a part of Survivor Series.

What WASN'T known was why.

As of Saturday, the various rumors/versions of the story
were:

1) The official one, namely that there were airplane
problems that prevented the place from taking off. Most
people seem to be discounting this, as another airline could
have been chartered... and was by 20 of the "top talent" who
attempted to make it back to the United States for
Smackdown, but failed. The fact that from the beginning, WWE
was trying TOO hard to get it out that there was an airplane
problem, and nothing else made me think from moment one that
this was a cover story.

2) A major disagreement between the Saudis and WWE on money
owed. There was a claim that WWE cut off the feed of Crown
Jewel to the Saudis, either at the beginning...or for all of
it. Hugo Savinovich went do far as to claim WWE was owed
"$300 to 500 million". The obvious problem with that story
was that such a figure could only have been for the length
of the FULL contract.

It seemed possible that SOME sort of money issue could have
played a part, but certainly not out and out stiffing WWE
for all of it, which would have sent a message to all sorts
of entertainers who have been part of the whole "Riyadh
Season" PR campaign by the Crown Prince that the Kingdom
can't be relied on. If that happened, their "Riyadh Season"
PR campaign would fall apart. But at first, people saw
Savinovich's name and immediately assumed it was Gospel
based on his WWE connection.

3) Then there was speculation of some sort of
ideological/religious upset by some Islamic authorities
based on Lacey Evans and Nattie Neidhart showing what some
have termed "PDAs" to two or three women at ringside....in
English, actually no more than Evans and Neidhart kissing
the hand of one woman, and hugging two.

Instead of those three versions, a far more likely one came
out Sunday suggesting that the whole saga stemmed from the
fact the Saudis had not paid WWE for their Super ShowDown
event from this past June...until literally just before
Crown Jewel.

Part of the conference call with reporters last Thursday
morning (an hour before Crown Jewel show took place), WWE
Co-President George Barrios noted that they had just
received a $60 million payment "for an outstanding
receivable" that should have been received during the third
quarter being reported on in the call.

But as of the WWE crew landing in Riyadh (prior to the
Conference Call, this payment had still not been made, which
seems likely to have created the disagreement that the two
parties had and what followed. This is reported to have led
to WWE airing Crown Jewel on a 40-60 minute delay to the
Saudis, rather than live in the country on the MBC Action
television station as scheduled. This angered the Saudi
government and resulted in blocking their planes departure.

No one was in danger and all the talent had free reign...as
long as they stayed in the hotel. They could order whatever
food they wanted, and were in comfortable surroundings.
Some were permitted to leave after arranging alternative
flights (including Seth Rollins who flew to Dubai), as well
as the group of 20 talent that chartered their own flight in
order to attempt to get home.

Talent is reported to be angry with McMahon, feeling pretty
much pawns in the dispute between the Saudis and WWE, with
some claiming they won't go back. That atmosphere should
make tonight's RAW, followed by the upcoming UK tour, which
includes a Smackdown (tape delayed) from Manchester, UK and
a RAW from Glasgow, Scotland plus several house
shows....really, really fun.

In much nicer news, in keeping with the season of light and
the season of the Christchild, the independent wrestling
community will reach out to those in need. Independent
promotions hold a wide variety of events to benefit various
food pantries, fundraisers for homeless or domestic violence
shelters, provide funds to efforts benefiting those
suffering from cancer, heart disease, natural disasters,
veterans charities, local natural disaster cleanup/relief,
other community efforts...and lots and lots of Toys for Tots
drives.
