On Jerry Lawler’s podcast this week, he addressed the travel issues in Saudi Arabia, and detailed Vince McMahon addressing the situation to wrestlers before Raw on Monday. According to Lawler, he said Vince McMahon took a microphone and addressed the entire roster on Monday. So did Triple H. Vince called it the worst travel story he had seen in his 49 years of being involved in pro wrestling. He went through a timeline explaining what happened:
The first problem was the tug
Then an issue with the manifest due to the weight of the plane
Wrestlers say this was not explained to them properly
More fuel was needed after the weight issue
After the tanks were completely full, a sensor was set off saying a piece of equipment transferring fuel from one engine to another wasn’t working
A piece had to be flown in from Germany to address the fuel issue.
Then the issue of finding hotel rooms for 200 people.
A.J. Styles spoke up about what a disaster the situation was to live through.
