Has KSA made a statement yet denying any of this? I seem to recall Russia being quick to deny some of those poisonings. I'm just trying to figure out what insane excuse they would have for how this guy died.

Not a word from the KSA.

That's a pretty tasteless pun, all things considered:nottalking:

You've got to hand it to him - that pun was pretty good and it didn't cost him an arm and a leg!

WWE is doing a show in Saudi Arabia next month, and is pretty much all in on going because of the fat checks the prince cut to the McMahons.

I didn't see the last one but I saw an article commenting on it. Calling it propaganda. It gives me the impression that the Saudis are using WWE in the same way Qatar and UAE use soccer.

It was an utter disgrace. The WWE commentators were clearly handed pro Saudi stuff to read and they ran pro Saudi ads that were like tourist ads only they were basically saying “look how good at human rights we are”

 

And then there was the optic of only the Saudi Royal family being allowed to sit in the first 5 rows around ring side and then no one was allowed to sit with 30/40 feet of the royal family. So there was just a giant empty area filled with security.

Soooo... mainstream American media, are you going to pay a bit more attention to Saudi Arabia's genocidal war in Yemen now or what?  Or is this a one-time thing because they knocked off a reporter?

Listening to Michael Cole spout off pro-Saudi Arabia propaganda was insanely grating. And then top it off with the fact that the women on the roster are forced to miss a payday is a sore spot with the entire roster (or at least the members of the roster not making that Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Undertaker money).

Yea, every other minute the commentators would say something about “how beautiful the city is” or something. WWE is trying to ignore what’s happening and the calls from politicians to cancel the event as they made over $50 million on a the last show (and are projected to make more on this one), which is more than any WrestleMania has ever made. They even promised so much money to certain wrestlers that they got friggen HBK to come out of retirement.

You know that scene in pulp fiction where John Travolta accidentally shoots the guy in the face (killing him) while they are riding in the car?  And then they have to dispose of the body at Tarantino's house?  Yeah.  That's what happened here.  The Saudis are just going to release the script from that portion of Pulp fiction is my guess.

Vincent turns to the backseat with the .45 casually in his 
               grip.

                                     VINCENT
                         Marvin, what do you make of all this?

                                     MARVIN
                         I don't even have an opinion.

                                     VINCENT
                         C'mon, Marvin. Do you think God came 
                         down from Heaven and stopped the 
                         bullets?

               Vincent's .45 goes BANG!

               Marvin is hit in the upper chest, below the throat. He GURGLES 
               blood and SHAKES.

                                     JULES
                         What the fuck's happening?

                                     VINCENT
                         I just accidentally shot Marvin in 
                         the throat.

                                     JULES
                         Why the fuck did you do that?

                                     VINCENT
                         I didn't mean to do it. I said it 
                         was an accident.

                                     JULES
                         I've seen a lot of crazy-ass shit in 
                         my time –

                                     VINCENT
                         – chill out, man, it was an accident, 
                         okay? You hit a bump or somethin' 
                         and the gun went off.

                                     JULES
                         The car didn't hit no motherfuckin' 
                         bump!

                                     VINCENT
                         Look! I didn't mean to shoot this 
                         son-ofa-bitch, the gun just went 
                         off, don't ask me how!

                                     JULES
                         Look at this mess! We're drivin' 
                         around on a city street in broad 
                         daylight –

                                     VINCENT
                         – I know, I know, I wasn't thinkin' 
                         about the splatter.

                                     JULES
                         Well you better be thinkin' about it 
                         now, motherfucker! We gotta get this 
                         car off the road. Cops tend to notice 
                         shit like you're driving a car 
                         drenched in fuckin' blood.

                                     VINCENT
                         Can't we just take it to a friendly 
                         place?

                                     JULES
                         This is the Valley, Vincent. Marsellus 
                         don't got no friendly places in the 
                         Valley.

                                     VINCENT
                         Well, don't look at me, this is your 
                         town, Jules.

               Jules takes out a cellular phone and starts punching digits.
