On-Sale Date Postponed for Tickets to Crown Jewel

wwe statement crown jewel saudi arabia deal jamal khashoggi

Tickets to Crown Jewel were scheduled to go on-sale today, but the date has now been changed.

WWE had been listing October 19 as the on-sale date for tickets to the controversial event. The same area on WWE.com now only has November 2 listed … which is the day of the show. 

In addition to that, there’s still no location listed at this point. 

As we previously reported … WWE has come under heavy criticism due to their relationship with the Saudi Arabian government, who reportedly ordered the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

U.S. Senators have urged WWE to pause their relationship for the time being. JBL went on Fox Business to defend the company’s decision to run shows in Saudi Arabia. Pre-show panelist Sam Roberts, however, spoke on his podcast this week about how WWE should relocate Crown Jewel. 

So far WWE has only said they are monitoring the situation.

UPDATE: Moments after publishing this article, Saudi Arabian officials reportedly confirmed the death of Khashoggi inside of their consulate in Turkey. According to CNN, 18 Saudi nationals have been detained for investigation in connection to the Washington Post columnist’s murder.
