So far, the WWE has had two PPV events take place in Saudi Arabia since signing their deal back in 2018. Reportedly worth $450 million, the deal would allow Saudi Arabia to host multiple WWE events over a decade.
Last year, the WWE held the Greatest Royal Rumble in April and Crown Jewel in November. The company received some serious criticism from fans, critics, and even members of the United States Government in regards to their deal and decision to continue with the Crown Jewel event despite the Saudi government’s involvement in the disappearance and death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Now, they will be heading back to Saudi Arabia this May. Fightful has learned that the company’s next event will be held there on May 3rd. It was reported by the Wrestling Observer that the company already had dates booked for May and November of 2019.
It’s unknown if this will be another Greatest Royal Rumble event, or if the WWE will bring in a new gimmick altogether.
