Brock Lesnar picks up Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair on his private jet on the way to Crown Jewel

The majority of the WWE roster has headed to the Middle East this week for Crown Jewel, which means a heck of a long journey and back for the superstars.

They all flew out to Riyadh after Monday Night Raw in St. Louis this week, in a plane chartered by the company to ensure a smooth-sailing operation for everyone on board.

It's around a 14-hour flight from the middle of the States to Saudi Arabia, which is pretty lengthy, and with SmackDown being broadcast live in Buffalo, New York the night after Crown Jewel, there's not going to be much resting time for the blue brand stars.

Of course they will be able to sleep on the plane back but it's far from ideal, and time zone differences will mean that WWE personnel will land back in the USA on Friday morning.

Some stars though find their own ways of travelling overseas though, and for big-time players like Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, private jets are the way forward.

Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan may be rivals at Crown Jewel, but they travelled together to Saudi Arabia

Despite the two legends currently feuding in storyline terms, they travelled together via jet to the event, with the 'Mouth of the South' Jimmy Hart.

But Hogan noted via a video message that the jet encountered an issue on landing in Iceland, where the brakes had 'melted' and some of the tyres had blown out - scary stuff.

Hogan noted that he wasn't getting back on his own plane, but that a 'Minnesota boy' had offered to give him a ride to Saudi Arabia from Iceland, and he showed a similar plane in the distance - both were likely to have touched down to re-fuel for the lengthy flight.

Brock Lesnar was the man who saved Hogan and Flair from travel disaster

According to Mike Johnson of PW Insider, the occupant of the other jet was none-other than WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, who invited Flair, Hart and Hogan on-board to complete the rest of the trip with him.

What a good guy Brock is, and you can only imagine what the four got up to on the way to Riyadh - no doubt some would pay good money for a WWE Network exclusive feature of that!
