Several WWE stars have been left stranded in Saudi Arabia following the Crown Jewel pay-per-view yesterday.
As a result, many main roster stars will be unable to attend tonight’s Smackdown show on FOX. WWE has reportedly flown out many NXT stars to Buffalo for tonight’s TV taping.
Last night at Crown Jewel, Rusev represented Hulk Hogan alongside Roman Reigns, Ali, Shorty G and Ricochet in a ten-man tag team match.
After being left stranded in Saudi Arabia, Rusev channelled his inner Hulk Hogan on Twitter when asking for fan’s prayers.
At this point and time We need all the prayers… brother.

Dave Meltzer noted on Twitter that the WWE Superstars in Saudi Arabia will be returning home on a flight in a matter of hours, so Rusev and the rest of the WWE roster should be home by tomorrow morning.
Talent in Saudi Arabia is fine. They've been told their flight will leave in five hours.
