Threatening to impose economic sanctions and repeating "false accusations" will not undermine the country's standing, said the statement on Saudi Arabia's official press agency, which quoted an "official source".
Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and U.S. permanent resident whose writings have been critical of powerful Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has been missing since entering the country's consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2.
US senator Richard Blumenthal from WWE's home state of CT has called on WWE to "review and relook" at its relationship with Saudi Arabia.
What is the latest from the Saudis?
The Kingdom also warned that "if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action".
Mr Tugendhat added that it was important to establish the facts, but if the Riyadh government had murdered Khashoggi there could be a downgrading of diplomatic relations and a boycott by United Kingdom ministers.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has aggressively pitched the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment.
As the calls for WWE to pull out of their Saudi Arabian partnership increase, the company have seemingly placed a complete moratorium on their upcoming trip to the Middle East being mentioned on all of their social media platforms. Turkey claims that Khashoggi, who wrote for The Washington Post, was killed inside a Saudi diplomatic mission in Turkey. "It's a tremendous order from an economic development standpoint", Trump said.

The Arctic is likely to be ice-free in summer around once a century at 1.5C but at least once a decade if warming climbs to 2C. The report explains why it's so important that we meet the 1.5 degree target, and how hard that will be to accomplish.
The prime minister also says Canada has "serious issues" around reports about the disappearance of US journalist Jamal Khashoggi, although he says there is still more to learn before he'll comment further.
There was already mounting concern over civilian deaths caused by a Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen's civil war and some have said Washington should block military sales to Riyadh if the allegations over Mr Khashoggi are proven. "I will be also calling King Salman of Saudi Arabia, because I think it's appropriate for me to ask him what is going on", he said. Among other things, Kushner is hoping for MBS' support in navigating his peace plan between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
Where is the investigation now?
Turkey said on Thursday it had accepted a proposal from Saudi Arabia to cooperate on the investigation.
Turkish officials have expressed frustration at Saudi's level of cooperation, having still not been allowed to access the consulate building, despite promises.
The drop in the Tadawul exchange in Riyadh happened Sunday, the first day of trading. "The market is reacting negatively to sentiment around the Khashoggi case and the political noise around it", Salah Shamma, head of investment for the region at Franklin Templeton Emerging Markets Equity, was cited by Reuters as saying.
What is alleged to have happened in Istanbul?
Turkey believes the journalist was deliberately killed in the consulate and his body removed, but Saudi rejects those claims.
Earlier, Turkish newspaper Sabahreported the missing Saudi journalist recorded the consulate episode on his smartwatch and the "interrogation, torture and possible killing was recorded and automatically sent to both his iPhone and cloud account".
