WWE Executive Vice President Paul “Triple H” Levesque said: “We are excited to return to Saudi Arabia after the success of our first test in 2018. There we recruit a variety of elite athletes from the Middle East, including Mansoor, who has played a significant role in various company events. ”
As of today, the official WWE recruitment website will be available in Arabic, adapted to athletes who are interested in pursuing a career in sports entertainment. There you will find information about the recruitment process and a detailed vision of what daily life is like for members of the Performance Center.
Saudi Arabia’s first Tryout was held in April 2018 in Jeddah, where three participants signed development contracts with the company: Mansoor, Faisal Kurdi and Hussain Al Dagal. Mansoor was the winner of the 50- Men Battle Royal that was held last year in WWE Super ShowDown.
