WWE’s recent Greatest Royal Rumble event took place amidst controversies as on one hand, it featured some of the biggest names the company has to offer, on the other, several stars were forced to miss the show.
During a recent interview with Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline, Jim Cornette talked about the Mega Live event among other things.
While talking about the stars who were forced to miss the show, Cornette said that the company should have given them a good sum of money because WWE itself made tens of millions:
” Sami Zayn, they don’t want you, so I tell you what. I’m gonna give you 50 grand, go buy you a brand new SUV and you don’t have to make that flight. And girls: here you go. Here’s a brand new sports car for all of y’all and you don’t have to make that flight and get beat up.”
For those who don’t know, the Greatest Royal Rumble did not feature any Women’s matches due to the cultural restriction of Saudi Arabia. Similarly, Sami Zayn was apparently forced to miss the show due to diplomatic reasons.
It’s worth mentioning here that there have been reports of WWE paying the Women’s roster a good bonus for the event despite the fact that they were not included in the show but these claims have not been confirmed by a reputed source yet.
