WWE has always had split rosters to avoid these types of crazy travel problems, dating back to the '80s when they had A, B, and even C towns.  Now with the brand split, there should be no excuse for this sort of thing, but as Kriss pointed out they are trying to sell everyone on a full roster when that's not practical.  The Saudi show should've been a Raw-only show as there is no way to guarantee that Smackdown talent could travel 7,000 miles in less than 24 hours and perform at a level that would meet expectations.  It's also a ridiculous thing to ask the talent to do when it's totally unnecessary.  WWE has hundreds of talents under contract, more than they can ever use, and the same 20 guys are being paraded around the world constantly as everyone else demands a release or is miserable from lack of ring time.
