John Oliver Calls Out WWE Over Saudi Arabia Deal

WWE released a statement to the media that they were monitoring the situation in Saudi Arabia before making a decision about WWE Crown Jewel, but reports have since emerged that the company has decided to go ahead with their original plans.

John Oliver, while discussing the Crown Prince's PR push to attract businesses and change the world's perception of Saudi Arabia, mentioned the working relationship between Saudi Arabia and  WWE.

"They held their first of many events there back in April. And audiences around the world were treated to wall-to-wall propaganda about the new Saudi Arabia, including a video showing women happily driving, men dancing, and tourist destination beauty shots, as well as constant excited announcements throughout the broadcast.

It seems that WWE is as overtly pro-Saudi Arabia as it is lately homoerotic, which is to say intensely"
