Report: WWE Claims Payment Issues Had Nothing To Do With Crown Jewel TV Feed Being Delayed

Latest from the company...

Amid all of the rumors surrounding the WWE Crown Jewel situation over the past few days, there have been claims that a disagreement between Vince McMahon and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman took place over money.

It was speculated by several outlets that WWE had not been paid for events in Saudi Arabia, and as a result, McMahon had the Saudi TV feed of the event cut, which resulted in the show airing on tape delay.

Nothing has been confirmed regarded these suggested events. In addition, no concrete link has been between the alleged situation and the crew's flight home being delayed for close to 24 hours.

Alfred Konuwa of Forbes claims to have spoken to WWE, which denied all of the allegations, reiterating the "mechanical issues" as the sole cause of the crew's flight delay.

"WWE tells me the feed issues were entirely unrelated to any issues with payment," wrote Konuwa. "They reinforced that mechanical issues were a cause of the flight delay and Atlas Air, the charter company, issued an apology in that regard as well."
