WWE's statement on Superstars returning home from Crown Jewel
We can now confirm that all WWE Superstars and personnel returned home last night. WWE's official website confirmed this, stating that the reason behind the delay was travel issues. Here's a part of what WWE's statement on the delay said:
"More than 175 Superstars, production crew and employees boarded a 747 charter flight back to the United States on Thursday. After the door closed, due to several aircraft problems including mechanical issues, all passengers sat on the tarmac for more than six hours.
"With SmackDown emanating live from Buffalo, N.Y., several Superstars felt so strongly that they arranged for their own separate charter in order to make it back to the U.S. for the show. Due to unforeseen issues, that charter did not land until after the live broadcast on FOX."
