Daniel Bryan reportedly made his decision not to go to Saudi Arabia before news broke of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Prior to WWE’s first show in the country, Bryan knew little or nothing about Saudi Arabia until he got there, largely felt he couldn’t go back under those circumstances. Now, Bryan is uncomfortable at Saudi Arabia’s treatment of homosexuals and the handling of Sami Zayn not being allowed to compete in the country. He also reportedly wanted to lose to The Miz back at Super Show-Down in Melbourne.
