There is a situation regarding the backlash of the disappearance of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi, who was a Saudi Arabian national who had been critical of aspects of the country in his reporting. In his piece Barrasso made his case for why, considering the current political climate, WWE should pull out of their planned Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
