It should be noted that Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart and Ric Flair were on a private jet and the wheels of their jet burst mid-journey.
PWInsider is reporting that WWE Champion Brock Lesnar then told Hogan, Hart & Flair to hop on his private jet:
“PWInsider has learned that [Hogan’s] friend was actually Brock Lesnar as his plane to Saudi had stopped in Iceland as well, likely to refuel. So, Hogan, Flair and Hart jumped on Lesnar’s flight.”
Below is a video of WWE Superstars arriving in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, including top names like Hulk Hogan, Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Braun Strowman, Cain Velasquez & more:
