WWE’s Saudi Arabia Deal Is Causing The Company To Run Fewer Live Events

WWE has a ten-year deal with Saudi Arabia that we are currently in the second year of. This partnership will not only see two shows a year go to KSA, but the controversial country also expects WWE to spread their fed messages in return.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that WWE will be running another Saudi Arabia show on November 1st this year. That is probably going to cause some more issues, but they are in this deal for the long-haul. After all, KSA is giving WWE a lot of money.

It is also noted that due to the Saudi Arabia events, it has caused WWE to run fewer live events during their UK and European tour around the Saudi shows.

It should be noted that the May and November dates in running Saudi Arabia cut down on the number of dates in Europe for the tours in both months, and allow them to concentrate on more larger arenas

WWE likes to brag about the fact that they had more people attend the last run of European events, but that is because they ran fewer of them so more fans had to travel. It looks like the Saudi Arabia shows are not stopping any time soon, so we can probably expect more of the same to come.
