Earlier this week, the possible date of WWE’s return to Saudi Arabia began leaking and it was even ensured that the company will return to the country to hold another live event in October. This information came out of WWE superstar talks that went to the last Super ShowDown show.
Mike Johnson, a journalist for PW Insider, has confirmed the news and added that WWE originally put on the table the possibility of holding the show in August, but two factors ruled out that plan. WWE wanted to avoid heat stations, especially for what happened at the last Super ShowDown event held in June 2019, where many of the superstars said they had lived a real hell about the ring. The second reason would be the proximity of SummerSlam, one of the key annual shows for WWE.
“WWE is already working on its return to Saudi Arabia,” PWInsider confirmed. “In the first instance, the option was put on the table on Thursday, August 8 (it is believed to be for an event in Jeddah), but with the proximity to the Summerslam weekend and the likelihood of temperatures soaring, that idea was discarded. Currently, they are looking for a return in late October or early November. “
It has not yet been confirmed, but it is planned that the next WWE show in Saudi Arabia will be a new edition of “Crown Jewel “. The last time a show with that name was held on October 31, 2019, where “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt beat Seth Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere to win the WWE Universal Championship.
