The WWE is looking to an old friend to help out with perhaps the most controversial event in professional wrestling history.
The WWE is hosting a major event in Saudi Arabia on Friday absent two of its biggest pro-wrestling stars.
John Cena and Daniel Bryan have both been quietly written out of the "Crown Jewel" contest in Riyadh, after they reportedly refused to make the trip in light of the murder of Saudi journalist and USA resident Jamal Khashoggi earlier this month.

The event is surrounded by controversy after the WWE chose to go forward with it despite an American resident and Washington Post journalist being murdered earlier this month at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Turkey.
