    I’m not going to debate religious views but the fact they even let women have a match is progress.

  • Cancel the show

    Yeah, and the stupid country made the women be competely covered from neck to toe, long sleeves too. You know, because of how sexy forearms are, can’t have anybody getting too aroused.

  • I’m Right

    Watch it be the main event.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Well at least HHH will have a better match at that show then WM 34 were going to have to carry Kurt Angle.

    Don’t get me wrong I love Kurt Angle but he can’t wrestle to good anymore.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Oh shut up it not going to be the Main Event if don’t like it don’t watch it.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Didn’t they just have a women’s match over there for the first time ever recently?

  • Cancel the show

    Yes, let’s put those two young kids Cena and Triple H in the main event. And Vince wonders why no one sees the current crop as draws. WWE shouldn’t even be doing this show because of how repressive the muslim world is towards women. If you don’t want the female wrestlers there or make them wear head to toe body suits like they made the women do last year, don’t run the area. WWE effectively shows their approval of the muslim world’s treatment of women running these areas.
