When will WWE return to Saudi Arabia?

Just last week, WWE aired its latest midweek PPV, aka the Crown Jewel, leaving a lot of excitement for WWE Universe fans who flocked ringside, but also to those connected from all over the world, via the WWE Network. Among the many great clashes that took place in the Saudi Arabian PPV, there have been great names of excellence such as Bill Goldberg, Bobby Lashley, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, all athletes who have become protagonists of great battles, who have left their mark in recent storylines of the McMahon-owned company.

During the last few hours, the PPV calendar has also emerged that WWE has already started planning for 2022, next year, with several major events that have obviously already been defined, namely the annual Big Four and the other great PPVs like Money in the Bank.

For the moment, however, there have not yet been any communications regarding future events in Saudi Arabia, although it is certain how WWE will absolutely return to Asian soil, to keep the agreement signed with the Arab principality lasting over 10 years.

Will WWE return to Saudi Arabia twice in 2022?

WWE inked a deal with Saudi Arabia's General Sports Authority to host two WWE shows per year for 10 years. As happened in recent years, before the outbreak of the world pandemic, WWE should hold two ppv from next year in Arabia, namely WWE Super ShowDown and WWE Crown Jewel, as already happened previously.

At the moment, however, the dates on which these ppv could take shape have not even been rumored, also because the WWE will have to put on an annual program, with ppv and tours around the world, which will then have to follow meticulously, as always done, every year, until before the pandemic.

According to what was hypothesized by some sources inside the WWE, who then spoke with Sean Ross Sapp of the well-known site Fightful, it seems that the periods of the year that the company could use for these trips overseas are at the beginning and at the end of the year.

solar. "Saudi Arabian shows, not yet listed, may be listed for February and October by WWE, from what I know." Typically, WWE is just that time of year they use to stage such events, with Crown Jewel and Super ShowDown coming close to two big company events, respectively: Wrestlemania and Survivor Series.
