Kane is not wavered by the news.
The spotlight has been on World Wrestling Entertainment over the past few days as they are set to run their 'Crown Jewel' show at King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. With a stacked match card confirmed for the event also comes with the unfortunate news that Saudi leaders reportedly led Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia where he was kidnapped and James has not been seen since and has reportedly been killed. The Washington Post recently published an article with a headline that reads, "Turks tell U.S. officials they have audio and video recordings that support conclusion Khashoggi was killed".
The article published by the outlet noted that James Khashoggi had ties to the Saudi Royal family but has been writing critically of the current Saudi government and its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Saudi Arabia officials have denied any involvement with the disappearance of Khashoggi. In wake of this news that stretches across multiple realms, Knox County Mayor and WWE superstar Glenn "Kane" Jacobs has not changed his mind about wrestling in Saudi Arabia on November 2nd at 'Crown Jewel' where he and The Undertaker will team up to face Triple H and Shawn Michaels. 'Knox News' ran an article about the situation and asked Jacobs' spokesperson Rob Link for a comment about the happenings in Saudi Arabia and Link stated that there has been no change of plans for Glenn Jacobs about wrestling at 'Crown Jewel' in three weeks.
"Mayor Jacobs won't speculate on Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance," Link said. "However, he and his family are in the mayor's thoughts and prayers."
Further updates on this situation will be provided here on Fightful as they come and one of the recent updates had to do with U.S. Senators applying pressure to WWE about possibly cancelling their trip to Saudi Arabia. For more information on that, head over to Fightful's article on the topic.
