While the upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble has shaped up to be a legendary event with a match card capable enough to give goosebumps to any wrestling fan, there is one thing missing from the show.
Due to the strict laws in Saudi Arabia, there are no women’s matches on the card for the upcoming event. As the show is approaching media outlets have started questioning WWE’s decision to do business with a region which imposes conservative Islamic cultural standard on their country.
During a recent interview with the Independent, Triple H addresses this controversy and said that every culture is different and people have to understand that just because they don’t agree with a certain aspect of the culture, then it doesn’t mean that the culture is not relevant.
Though continuing on the topic, The Game said that you have to be a part of something first to change things and later hoped that the females will also get a chance to showcase their talent in Arabia in the next few years:
While, right now, women are not competing in the event, we have had discussions about that and we believe and hope that, in the next few years they will be. That is a significant cultural shift in Saudi Arabia.
