WWE & Saudi Arabia have expanded partnership

WWE Superstars were stuck in Saudi Arabia longer than they intended to. AJ Styles explained how it was an issue with paperwork and fuel, with the pilots needing to sleep. On the other hand, WWE said it was due to mechanical issues.



Despite what all the rumors suggested, WWE made an official statement regarding their partnership with Saudi Arabia. They said they have a good relationship with the country.

“We have a good relationship with our partners, and the feed issues were unrelated to anything of that nature [payment dispute]. We’ve been public with mechanical issues, the charter company has as well”

They then released another statement where they talked about “expanding’ their deal with Saudi Arabia.

Following the historic Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, WWE (NYSE: WWE) and the Saudi General Entertainment Authority (GEA) have expanded their live event partnership through 2027 to include a second annual large-scale event. WWE and GEA also continue to work towards the completion of a media agreement in the MENA region.

This long-term partnership demonstrates WWE and GEA’s commitment to bring sports entertainment to the region and supports Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.

It is unknown what WWE meant by a second large-scale event as they already hold two events every year. So it seems there is no problem between the company and Saudi Arabia.
