There have been several U.S. Senators who recently gave comments on WWE’s current relationship with Saudi Arabia after the disappearance of a U.S. based Saudi national Jamal Khashoggi.
Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut: “I’d hope that they [WWE] would be rethinking their relationship with the kingdom especially with respect to events coming up in the next weeks…”
Senator Bob Menendez from New Jersey: “Private enterprise is private enterprise, different than a governmental entity. But because [Linda McMahon] is part of the president’s cabinet, it falls into the grey area where the administration really should give it some thought and maybe even prevail upon them not doing it.”
Senator Chris Coons from Delaware: WWE “should be taking a hard look” at their relationship with Saudi Arabia moving forward.
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina: “There should be a pause” with the business relationship.
