While travelling to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for WWE Crown Jewel, a private plane carrying Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart and Ric Flair got stuck in Iceland after several of its tyres burst.
When Hogan posted the news, he didn’t actually reveal Flair was with him for obvious reasons.
Luckily for them, there was another private plane stopping in Iceland – presumably to refuel – that they jumped in and continued the journey to Riyadh.
That private plane belonged to… WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, as reported by PWInsider.
Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart, Ric Flair and Brock Lesnar. Imagining being a fly on that plane’s wall.
Fortunately they did all get to Saudi in good time and were part of the media event earlier today.
