The McMahon Family has run WWE for decades but everything is susceptible to change. The Greatest Royal Rumble coming up on April 27th in Saudi Arabia is going to be a big night. But it could actually be starting more than some fans might realize.
Bryan Alvarez brought up the fact on Wrestling Observer Live that WWE doesn’t necessarily need Saudi Arabia’s money because they’re still pulling in millions of dollars anyway. But WWE’s relationship with Saudi Arabia actually extends well past the Greatest Royal Rumble.
“They’re not just WWE running shows and someone asked them to come in and run a sold show. They’re opening a Performance Center in Saudi Arabia. They’re opening a performance center there, and listen I don’t know if the Saudi government is going to buy into WWE or buy WWE but I would not be the least bit surprised if that is in the works here.”
“I don’t know about the whole company. I don’t know if [WWE] could sell the whole company because there’s shareholders, would Vince give up his entire… I have no idea. But obviously was UFC years ago Flash Entertainment so it’s possible. This is more than just going to a country and running one show.”
Flash Entertainment is owned by Abu Dhabi interests and just like the UFC, it could be possible for WWE to be an attractive investment as well. Although it might seem like a long-shot, you never know how things can turn out because this kind of situation could evolve into something more.
