WWE Hoping They Could Return To Saudi Arabia This Year

According to @Wrestlevotes, two sources within the WWE has revealed that an event could take place in Saudi Arabia before the end of the year, but no other details were given. Back in 2018, WWE and Saudi Arabia's General Sports Authority entered into a 10-year strategic multi-platform partnership so that they can support the 2030 Saudi Arabia Vision initiative, which is Saudi’s social and economic reform program.

The partnership sees to it that WWE hosts two shows per year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were delays in 2020. WWE held the Greatest Royal Rumble Event in Saudi Arabia in 2018 and Crown Jewel as well, while Super ShowDown and a second Crown Jewel Event took place in 2019, and a Super ShowDown Event was held yet again in 2020.

WWE typically holds an event in Saudi Arabia in the first few months of each year and then returns to Saudi Arabia later in the year for the second event. WWE was reportedly looking to return sometime in October or early November in 2020, but then the pandemic started.

There is no word yet on exactly when the WWE might return to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia or the theme of the event, but updates will be provided as it becomes available.
