HBO’s John Oliver Takes More Swings at WWE Over Crown Jewel

Last Week Tonight With John Oliver aired its latest episode Sunday night and took another critical stance over the WWE’s decision to continue its Crown Jewel pay-per-view show as scheduled in Saudia Arabia. 
Oliver previously lambasted the WWE over its 10-year business deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority on the Oct 14th episode. This week, he had a follow-up segment after WWE officials announced late last week that they would hold the Nov. 2 event in Riyadh as planned. despite the allegations that the Saudi government conspired to murder journalist Jamal Khashoggi. 
Oliver brought up John Cena refusing to wrestle in the show. He also mentioned the fan base being vocally against the deal with the Saudi government as a whole. In addition, he played a clip from SmackDown 1000 when fans began to boo The Undertaker when he began bringing up Crown Jewel. Here are the John Oliver segments from the latest episode:
