The majority of the WWE roster who flew out to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel yesterday have been left stranded in the country due to a mechanical issue with the plane.
They are expected to miss Smackdown, with WWE reportedly bringing in a few NXT stars for tonight’s TV taping.
However, a portion of the roster reportedly returned home last night on a private charter. However, it was not known who these Superstars were at the time.
Fightful Select has now revealed the top stars who have already returned home from Saudi Arabia:
“Roman Reigns, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bray Wyatt, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Scott Dawson, Dash Wilder and a few others were on the charter that left Saudi Arabia.”
Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Shinsuke Nakamura, New Day and The Revival are all Smackdown stars, so they were likely flown back early to ensure they made the show.
Roman Reigns is supposed to take on King Corbin, but it is not known whether the former has actually returned from Saudi Arabia yet.
New Universal Champion Bray Wyatt was slated to be part of a special Miz TV episode tonight. With Miz not making the trip to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel, expect the segment to go ahead as planned.
