Hogan and Flair arrived in Saudi Arabia on Lesnar's plane after they ran into aircraft trouble in Greenland and Lesnar happened to be refueling there.  If Bill Watts was still alive, they all would've been fired for exposing the biz.

There are all sorts of rumors swirling now that this is NOT a mechanical issue and the government was essentially holding WWE hostage for a transgression that is being speculated about. Meltzer says no one knows for sure right now except for Vince. Some of the talent took it in stride as a bad travel day that could happen anywhere, some were panicking. Buddy Murphy tweeted that he would never go back to Saudi Arabia. 


A few sources that don’t seem reliable are saying that Saudi Arabia is mad at Natalya for kissing some ringside fans after her match, but that could be complete BS. No one seems to know what the problem is, but this wasn’t a random malfunction.

Atlas Air, the charter jet company that WWE used, released a statement taking the blame for mechanical issues that delayed the flight.

It appears Brock has "quit" Smackdown and is heading to Raw.  So now the red Universal belt will be the main title on the blue brand.  Makes total sense lol.  I'm surprised FOX would be ok with not having Brock.  I'm assuming that won't be the case and swerve is coming.

So far Shayna Baszler lays out Bayley and Sasha Banks and Matt Riddle and Keith Lee confront Sami Zayn. NXT in the house.

Yeah, this whole thing seems a bit fishy.

HHH looked like a giant in the land of the midgets to close out SD tonight.

Best WWE show in years. They just needed Vince to be stranded 7000 miles away. What a main event! Takeover worthy and a legit dream match.

Over on WC, CM is saying that only black guys and chicks were held up.

NXT had a live event in Florida scheduled tonight, which explains why some top stars like Johnny Gargano were not on Smackdown. They needed some main eventers for their own show so the crowd didn’t feel ripped off. As it is, those fans got a weak NXT live card.

Meltzer says that the opening segment with Brock was always planned for tonight and went on unchanged. With Wyatt winning the title, they needed to get Lesnar to Raw so they brand could also have a World champion. The rest of the show was written by HHH (and it showed), but Vince signed off.

There's obviously more to the story that's still to come out.

They should have taped a Smackdown in Saudi Arabia. Double down.
