After the start of this crackling 2022 for WWE, with the Royal Rumble shocking a large slice of WWE Universe fans, the Stamford-based company wanted to top up the dose, announcing a new ppv for the month of February, directly from the rings of Saudi Arabia, where Elimination Chamber will be staged.
For the first time in the history of ppv on Arab soil, WWE also wanted to confirm the landing of the 6-man elimination hell cages, with the first historic Arab Chamber that will be valid for the WWE Championship currently in the hands of Bobby Lashley, who will have to defend his title from the attacks of Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Matt Riddle, AJ Styles and Austin Theory.
Apparently, however, PPVs in Saudi Arabia could further go up, with Elimination Chamber already appearing to be the third appointment of the year, given that during the calendar year both Crown Jewel and Super ShowDown are usually held, with the president of the WWE, Nick Khan, who in his last speech in front of the shareholders of the company wanted to leave open a door so far never crossed yet.
WWE could increase shows in Saudi Arabia
The last WWE pay-per-view to be held in Saudi Arabia was last year's Crown Jewel, which took place on October 21st. This means the upcoming February show could be Super ShowDown, though it hasn't been confirmed yet.
This will be the first time that a WWE event will be held on a Saturday in Saudi Arabia, as it usually takes place on Thursday, the day before SmackDown. As reported in the last few hours by the well-known Last Week Tonight program, with John Oliver, it would seem that the co-president of the company, Nick Khan, has left some questions from the WWE shareholders in suspense, leaving everyone with doubt.
With regard to "large-scale international events", as the WWE Arabs are called, the president has in fact left an open window on the number of events that we will see in the future linked to Saudi Arabia. In fact, to those who asked why such profitable and successful PPVs were held only twice a year, Nick Khan replied: "Well, we'll see what happens in the next few months."
Apparently, with this answer then, it would seem that Nick Khan may already know something more about these PPVs of the company to be held in Arabia, with Elimination Chamber which should therefore not replace a PPV already known in Asia, but it should instead increase the number and may not even be the only one on the list.
