The WWE will be going to Saudi Arabia on the 20th of February. This report is by PWInsider. The WWE will be announcing this soon reportedly. WWE’s last event in the Kingdom took place on the 31st of October. The event was the Crown Jewel event.
During the event, the first-ever women’s wrestling match took place. It was, however, quickly overshadowed by the flight issues that followed it. Many WWE superstars could not leave the Kingdom in time. They missed the following Smackdown Event.
The WWE had to create an NXT invasion angle to make up for it. They simply could not hold a Smackdown event when most of the Superstars were stuck in Saudi Arabia. The WWE recently announced that they expanded their partnership with Saudi Arabia.
The following is the announcement: "Following the historic Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, WWE (NYSE: WWE) and the Saudi General Entertainment Authority (GEA) have expanded their live event partnership through 2027 to include a second annual large-scale event.
WWE and GEA also continue to work towards the completion of a media agreement in the MENA region. This long-term partnership demonstrates WWE and GEA's commitment to bring sports entertainment to the region and supports Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030."
Some awesome matches took place inside the Kingdom. Goldberg vs The Undertaker and Braun Strowman vs Tyson Fury are two of the spectacular matches.
