During the latest episode of his podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer, Jim Ross went into detail regarding the issues around WWE’s Crown Jewel event. Below are some highlights of the podcast, which featured Matt Hardy, with a H/T to Rajah.com for the transcription.
On the political issue:
“The Saudi Arabia show … the political aspects of Saudi Arabia show are something I can’t do anything about, I don’t know what you’d do. I’m not going to get into the political discussions.”
On women not being able to compete:
“Look, if the talent can go there and foster any change of this like by the WWE, then I’m for that. Making life better for everybody. I don’t know what I could do personally other than say this that I don’t agree with how women are treated even in America. You don’t have to go to Saudi Arabia to figure out that there’s problems abroad. Women cannot be considered second class citizens, period.
“So no, I don’t think that it’s hypocritical that WWE is going there, and they are promoting women’s movement, not at all. They’re addressing another agenda, and that agenda will include women at some point in time.”
