-- According to the Independent, the Yemen-based Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula slammed the current Saudi Arabia regime and sent a warning to Prince Mohammad bin Salman. The terrorist group said that the prince is “opening the door wide for corruption and moral degradation” and that “[foreign] disbelieving wrestlers exposed their privates and on most of them was the sign of the cross, in front of a mixed gathering of young Muslim men and women.” The statements are an obvious reference to the Greatest Royal Rumble that was recently held in Saudi Arabia.
