Well it's now been cancelled, and honestly, it's the right call to make, especially since the Saudis have made threats if Trump sanctions them, which if that happens, could eventually lead to war. I've also read very few of the wrestlers, if any, actually want to go perform there with all the shit going on there right now. If that's true, then it's good to see the wrestlers stand up for themselves.

I’ve still yet to see confirmation that it’s been cancelled.

WWE would be hugely out of pocket if they do cancel as the massively lucrative deal with the Saudi’s would probably be out the window and the huge money being paid to guys like Lesnar, Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker would have to come out of WWE’s pocket.

On the plus side if it gets switched to the rumoured Manchester venue I may try and get tickets.

Yeah at this point there's no way it gets cancelled, but rather that the venue will change.

You Brits here stand to benefit from this if the venue does fall through. First PPV since when? SummerSlam 92?

They've announced 2 Raw matches for the World Cup and it seems as though the event is still going ahead. They have arranged a backup arena in case evidence is shown of Saudi government involvement but short of that the show will go on.

Some very level discussion here, particularly Rico's comments are politicians as representatives, not directors. Ultimately, you can't say "the government is pressuring Linda McMahon..." when only a number of individuals in government are. Donald Trump is encouraging the show to continue. He is the top of the tree and a close ally of the McMahon family so they will go unless evidence comes out.
