Four WWE prospects from Saudi Arabia ejected Shawn & Ariya Daivari from the ring

JEDDAH, SAUDI ARABIA — Ariya & Shawn Daivari might think twice the next time they question the fortitude of Saudi Arabian athletes.

The brothers Daivari made their presence felt while Mike Rome introduced four standouts from WWE’s recent talent tryout in Jeddah. The prospects — Nassar of Mecca, Hussein of Medina, Mansoour of Riyadh and Fisal of Jeddah — received a warm reception from their fellow countrymen and women inside the sold-out King Abdullah Sports City Stadium. Hussein and Mansoour spoke joyfully about their dreams of becoming WWE’s first Superstars from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Just then, The Persian Lion and his older brother — one of WWE’s most infamous instigators of all time — interrupted, waving an Iranian flag as they approached the ring. Ariya called the prospects “pathetic” and stated that real athletes hail from the “world’s strongest nation,” Iran, while Shawn denounced the athletes in Farsi.

Ariya then pushed Mansoour, and Mansoour responded in kind, knocking the Cruiserweight to the mat. Having had enough of the Daivaris’ arrogance, the prospects showed a few of the tricks they learned under WWE’s coaching staff, as Shawn was kicked by Fisal, slammed by Nassar and tossed out of the ring by Hussein.

The rousing display of Saudi strength closed with the four athletes proudly standing tall as the WWE Universe in attendance cheered wildly.
