John Oliver Covers WWE’s Involvement With Saudi Arabia In New Last Week Tonight


The weekly HBO hit Last Week Tonight covered in detail the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post journalist who has been missing since early October, and is feared murdered by the Saudi government at their consulate in Istanbul. In the highlight segment of the show, host John Oliver broke down a profile of Prince Mohammad bin Salman since taking power, and explained his new Saudi Vision 2030. The plan is to reduce the country’s dependence on oil, and shift it towards other means of income like technology to diversify its economy. Oliver also details the WWE’s relationship with Saudi Arabia, and criticizes their decision to remain in business with them for Crown Jewel considering Saudi Arabia’s human rights violations and involvement with Khashoggi’s death. Even more disturbing is a spliced together video clip of WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble, where Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves all highly praise and promote the Saudi Arabian government.

Here is just the WWE portion of the segment.
