News On Daniel Bryan Deciding Not Go To WWE Crown Jewel

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Daniel Bryan made his decision not to go to Saudi Arabia before news broke of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

He was supposed to challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Title at Crown Jewel but WWE made changes to the plans and booked it on SmackDown Live.

According to the report, Bryan felt uncomfortable at Saudi Arabia’s treatment of homosexuals as well as the handling of Sami Zayn not being allowed to compete in the country back in April for the Greatest Royal Rumble event. He also reportedly wanted to lose to The Miz back at Super Show-Down in Melbourne.
