WWE didn’t have permission to let women wrestle at Super ShowDown, but they brought Alexa Bliss and Natalya anyway. They did so in hopes that they would get permission to hold women’s wrestling match, but it’s not looking likely at this point.

Saudi Arabia isn’t allowing females to wrestle at WWE events which is interesting because women have been allowed to perform in other ways in the past such as part of the Russian Circus. However, it appears that Saudi Arabia isn’t allowing it at this point.

Bryan Alvarez revealed on Wrestling Observer Live that right now they are in Saudi Arabia and preparing for the Super ShowDown event, but they are not planning anything for the women on the show.

“All I know as of this moment is that they had a creative meeting today regarding tomorrow’s show and at no point during the creative meeting today was there a discussion of the women’s match.”


It’s not 100% that the women’s match won’t be happening, but right now that match is not in the plans. At least they aren’t discussing it right now backstage, but it might be a worse look for Saudi Arabia since WWE brought women to compete, but they aren’t letting them.

Apparently, Alexa Bliss and Natalya got a very long plane ride just to sit backstage if they are even allowed to attend the event at all considering Saudi Arabia’s customs.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
