WWE: Mayor Kane Still Planning on Wrestling in Saudi Arabia, WWE Signs Former ROH TV Champ

Kane Says He’s Still Wrestling in Saudi Arabia

Mayor Glenn “Kane” Jacobs told the Knoxville News Sentinel that he’s still planning on wrestling in Saudi Arabia on November 2 amidst criticism over Saudi Arabia’s apparent murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Kane’s spokesman said that his plans to wrestle haven’t changed and added, “Mayor Jacobs won’t speculate on Mr. Khashoggi’s disappearance. However, he and his family are in the mayor’s thoughts and prayers.”

It’s the expected response, of course. There are likely a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster who have problems wrestling in Saudi Arabia, but speaking out will very likely just lead to problems for them or even punishment against them by WWE.
