Not sure how reliable Hugo Savinovich is but he recently did I think a Facebook chat and this was some of the translation

That all sounds exactly the way one would think it to be. Two hothead billionaires with all the little people stuck inbetween.

nice of Heyman to coincidentally leave the scene as a dispute involving money not being paid flares up

If a money dispute was the cause then hopefully they finally end this shit and don't come back.

There is some dispute over the detail of cutting a feed since it was airing on delay anyways.

Vince would be up there for telling somebody “what are you going to do, behead me?” while in Saudi.

also, considering sixty is sesenta and six hundred is seiscientos. How likely is it to confuse them? Meaning, it seems more likely the Saudis owed 60m and not 600m.

it might have been for the best for everybody involved that Vince wasn't stranded in Riyadh for a day

You know Hunter is thinking to himself “But what if he did get stranded”.

Vince will become the eternal chairman ala Kim Il-Sung upon his death.

Meltzer and others have said that they have heard similar things regarding the WWE being owed money but no one has confirmed any version of events

Part of the reason this has picked steam is because the CBC reported that the Saudis owe Canada $3.4 billion (that’s with a B) for some military vehicles

of all the countries to buy military vehicles from.... Canada?

I think the "WWE pulled the feed in Saudi Arabia" story has been modified to "WWE put the show on tape delay in Saudi Arabia in response to not being paid". Which could be justified as a "hey, we wanna protect the attendance, pal" move (even if it doesn't matter to the WWE how many people show up if the Saudis actually pay them)

I wonder if Vince would feel empowered due to being allied with [the guy at 1600].

that is a big fucking plane.. just something to note since there's some people with "why didn't they just scramble all the private jets that the Saudi government seized" questions.. They were taking a Boeing 747-400 to get back. Wonder how much of the ring/set has to be transported back on flights like that.

At least we'll get a good post-Survivor Series feud of "Charter Plane superstars vs Atlas Air superstars"

Could mean 600million pesos - about $32M - which would seem more plausible based on the last few years of WWE financial costs

one interpretation from somebody talking to Bix:

it's probably not helpful to toss a "let's just say 300m for story purposes" into this story. Just unnecessarily confuses things.

There was also this note from the WWE financial call earlier in the week

They said investors couldn't be guaranteed two Saudi Arabia shows per year going forward.

So the possibly completely baseless speculation has moved to the fact that Vince and most of the other top executives all sold off a lot of stock in August and September, rather than waiting until just before the Fox deal actually kicked in. At the time, it was seen as odd, now, well, if they were getting ahead of the Saudi deal ending way prematurely... That's potentially criminal.

If they don’t go back SA, do you think they basically pushed as hard as they could to get the women’s match(AKA Their WCW in North Korea moment) because they knew this was it?

If if Saudi Arabia paid WWE it hasn’t shown up in their financials

I saw someone mention that a number of WWE bigwigs sold stock around the same time last year. I haven't researched, so take it as you will. But some companies set aside certain times where stock can be moved, so maybe that's happening here.
