Crown Jewel Emergency? WWE "Monitoring" Saudi Situation! (VIDEO)

Andy H. Murray & Adam Wilbourn on WWE Crown Jewel concerns, NXT releases & more!

Join WhatCulture's Andy H. Murray & Adam Wilbourn as they bring you Wednesday's rundown of all the latest wrestling news.

Today's video begins with the latest batch of WWE release (00:19), as the company let go of five NXT wrestlers, all of whom had at least appeared on Level Up - if not the mainline NXT show itself.


We then go over the reason behind the biggest name's departure (03:07), which came as a considerable surprise, given their role in an ongoing storyline.

Triple H Crown Jewel

From there, it's over to Saudi Arabia. WWE is believed to be monitoring the situation in the nation ahead of Crown Jewel 2022 (04:51), as Saudi officials warn the United States government of the threat of an imminent "attack."


Finally, we hit a lighter note, going over the big segment scrapped from this week's episode of WWE Raw (08:51), which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

As always, today's video closes with your best Twitter questions - plus the world-famous And Finally.
