Report: WWE possibly requested women’s match in Saudi Arabia for next year

WWE will be holding their fourth event in Saudi Arabia on October 31st. No female superstars will be brought to the event.



Owing to Saudi Arabia’s culture and religious beliefs, women are not allowed to wrestle in the country. However, WWE might be trying to change that.

According to a report by Brad Shepard on the Oh, You Didn’t Know Patreon, WWE has requested for a match between female superstars in Saudi Arabia. It is likely they are trying for next year, as this year it is no longer possible.

“According to a source in WWE, the General Sports Authority (GSA) and WWE have reached a deal on women’s matches for future events in Saudi Arabia in 2020.

I’m told the deal was overseen by Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud himself.”

While it entirely depends on Saudi Arabia, it is noted that this is only the fourth event out of the twenty in Saudi Arabia. So we might get to see a women’s match eventually.
