During the Royal Rumble pay-per-view broadcasts through the WWE Network, the company made official the realization of a new event within Saudi Arabia, which is the third annual Super ShowDown edition 2020.
Vince McMahon’s company made this announcement official through a short commercial that was announced before the confrontation between Becky Lynch and Asuka. WWE will return to Arab territory for a new pay-per-view next Thursday, February 27, more specifically at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh.
Although the rumor circulates in social networks of a confrontation between Kane and Bray Wyatt, the company has not yet officially confirmed any confrontation or guest star facing this new event within the Arab territory.
This will be the third consecutive year in which WWE performs Super ShowDown and the second in which this event will take place in Saudi Arabia. Recall that the 2019 edition featured clashes like Randy Orton against Triple H, Shane McMahon against Roman Reigns, and a Royal Battle of 51 participants won by local wrestler Mansoor. In the main event, The Undertaker defeated Goldberg in a match that received negative reviews from fans and specialized media.
Recall that this event is possible thanks to a ten-year agreement signed in 2018 by WWE and the government of Saudi Arabia. Since the latter is the one who finances the shows held in that country, the company has not spared when it comes to fighting with superstars recognized as The Undertaker, Triple H, or Shawn Michaels.
