Alexa Bliss and Natalya went to Saudi Arabia for the WWE Super ShowDown event, but they were not allowed to wrestle in a match. This was certainly a waste.
Bliss recently spoke to TV Insider and said that despite her and Natalya not being allowed to compete in a match, the two had a very good time in Saudi Arabia as they met women and children.
“I didn’t really know what to expect in Saudi Arabia. I knew it wasn’t going to be like Abu Dhabi. It’s very interesting to see how everything is over there. We had fun. When Nattie and I got to interact with kids in the hospital, they knew who we were. They know the product. The show itself was awesome. It was actually a really good experience.”
Alexa then went on to talk about how she and Natalya were greeted by women in Jeddah, who were happy to see them and asked them questions about their time in Saudi Arabia and if they were enjoying their stay.
“Every woman Natalya and I spoke to were super welcoming and asking us how we liked Jeddah. They said whatever they could do to make our stay better to let them know. Women there were just so excited to meet us. We had so many come up to us thanking us for coming and how they really hope to see a match. I think it’s definitely within reach. Everyone seems to be on board with us having match there.”
We hope that eventually WWE will be allowed to have women’s matches in Saudi Arabia. Though that might take some time.
