Before the big fight on Saturday, McMohan made some priceless statements about Saudi Arabia. Upon being asked about his opinion of the venue, he said,
“Everything they’re doing is so much. They’re delving into the superior aspects of all sports entertainment. Everything that is the best in the world it’s going to be here…This is our home now. This, as been pronounced, is our home, WWE’s home.”
