In this 2020 that will be considered for a long time one of the most tragic and strange years that there has been in this beginning of the millennium, WWE has also had its beautiful cats to be broken, moving ppv, weekly shows and changing plans running for everyone his shows and main protagonists because of the pandemic that literally brought the whole world to its knees, including that of pro-wrestling.
One of the countries most affected by the virus that left China was America, with the USA unlike many other European and Asian countries that did not want to start the mandatory quarantine immediately, as we did in Italy, paying heavily the consequences, which are still being felt overseas, even in Latin America.
Although the situation is not the best in the United States, in Saudi Arabia, home to several WWE shows in recent years, which have been second to fame and interest only to the greatest PPV in WWE history, such as Wrestlemania, Summerlsam or the Royal Rumble, it would seem that the virus has not done who knows how much damage, with the WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon, who has already exposed his idea to the company's board, in wanting to return to play a special show with the whole crew already in these final months of the year.
Vince McMahon said that this could be a possibility as Saudi Arabia is doing better than the United States as far as COVID-19 is concerned.
WWE could return to Saudi Arabia
He said that there’s possibility that the company will do an event in KSA before the end of 2020 as previously scheduled.
"Oh, that’s a possibility. Obviously, Saudi has been going through what we in America have been going through. As far as COVID’S concerned. Right now, I think they’re doing a little bit better than we are [in the U.S.], considerably better.
So there’s a possibility that we’ll will still get a show in before the end of the year, as was scheduled. But we’re not certain because, you know, who can be certain about what COVID-19 is going to do."
If WWE does decided to go ahead with a return to Saudi Arabia, it’s not clear whether they would be able to continue their trend of using big names from the past to make the stadium shows stand out. 2019 saw Undertaker defeat Goldberg in a match panned by critics and the wrestlers themselves back in June, while October’s Crown Jewel event featured both Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez against Strowman and Brock Lesnar respectively.
