It appears that Kevin Owens and Aleister Black have informed the WWE that they will not be traveling to Saudi Arabia. The known number of Superstars that refuse to participate now stands at four.
“Kevin Owens told the company he won’t be making the trip. John Pollock of Post Wrestling followed up with confirmation that Owens’ friend Sami Zayn won’t be working the show, due to Zayn’s Syrian heritage and issues that raised in Saudi Arabia (Sami didn’t appear or wrestle on either of WWE’s 2018 events in the KSA for the same reason).
Pollock also brought word that Aleister Black isn’t headed to Jeddah, and confirmed Daniel Bryan will be skipping his second straight Saudi event after working last April’s Greatest Royal Rumble.”
