Rusev says he will definitely go back to Saudi Arabia for more WWE shows

In an interview with British tabloid newspaper The Sun for SunSports, WWE Superstar Rusev said that he will be returning to Saudi Arabia when the company goes back next year and called Crown Jewel a big victory for WWE.

“I make a lot of money, I will definitely go back,” Rusev said bluntly. The Saudi trips are big money machines for WWE and the Superstars get a huge paycheck for their participation. “I love it, I love every single trip that we do there, I love how we break barriers with women wrestling there and Lana being able to go,” he continued.

Rusev said that this year’s Crown Jewel was a massive victory for WWE as a company for being able to hold the first-ever women’s wrestling match in the country. “Not just for that, but to open new doors and new opportunities to develop further, it’s just amazing. It’s a great opportunity for us to be ambassadors for entertainers.”

Asked about getting stuck in the country, Rusev said that frustrations grew by each passing hour but shot down the idea that they were held hostage by the Saudi government. “I don’t think anyone in their rightful mind is going to hold 170 people, American citizens, hostages, I don’t think that’ll reflect well anywhere,” he said.
