WWE is back overseas with its Crown Jewel event on Friday, Nov. 2, at King Saud Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, airing live on the WWE Network.
The WWE is looking to an old friend to help out with perhaps the most controversial event in professional wrestling history. The WWE received plenty of criticism for going into business with Saudi Arabia, and that was before the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Due to the controversy surrounding Crown Jewel, WWE may be looking to make the show memorable in order to try and direct the news of the event in a positive direction.
Even wrestling fans are vocally denouncing the show. WWE recently produced a commercial that featured Hogan in it that would have seen his return announced.

Professional wrestling icon Hulk Hogan is in line to make a surprise return to World Wrestling Entertainment this week, more than three years after he was sacked by the company after an audio recording of Hogan making racist remarks was released by the National Enquirer. That 10-year deal, which is part of the Saudis' "Vision 2030" project, reportedly will net the WWE more than $400 million.
