WWE/Saudi Arabia deal reportedly worth $45M per year

The WWE has signed on to host PPV events in Saudi Arabia over the next ten years. The company held the first show, the Greatest Royal Rumble, back in April in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

While the deal has been met with some heavy criticism and backlash, especially due to the fact that the women’s roster is not allowed to compete over there, it seems that the company was offered something that they couldn’t exactly refuse.

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that the deal is worth about $45M a year for the next ten years, bringing in around half a billion dollars for the WWE.

    Maybe they will due away with the smaller PPV.

    Then it is too close to SummerSlam. There is no great time to have it if they are going to make a bigger deal out of the “big 4” ppvs

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I hope they also move the PPV to around July it to close to Wrestlemania.

    No… It wasn’t.

    See that? WWE doesn’t care about it’s “fan base” known as the WWW Universe. As long stock is up… on a “per year “basis. What? Y’all thought you actually mattered?

  • Charlie Bronson

    Next year they need to come up with a more significant reward for winning the rumble there. Make the PPV must see.

  • Charlie Bronson

    That certainly helps the stockholders.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    This is good news for the WWE wrestlers because it means bigger paychecks.

  • Dirt McGirt

    $45 million a year? That’s a lot of oppression!

    Can’t say that I blame them. And the GRR was actually a hell of a lot better than almost all of the ppvs this year so far.
