WWE tried to get the green light to allow women to wrestle at the Super ShowDown, and it looks like those efforts might have paid off.

It was previously reported that WWE has been talking to the Saudi Arabia General Sports Authority about having women’s match in their country. The talks were so hopeful that Alexa Bliss and Natalya actually made the trip this time. However, as of yesterday that match was not confirmed.

Ring_Rules reports that KSA has given a green light for women to compete at the Super ShowDown. In a tweet translated from Arabic it says:

The WWE green Light was introduced to offer a women’s match


They later tweeted out (after we ran the initial article):

It is worth mentioning that it is possible to change the plans as the discussions were against the game but the last thing is that the game is now presented the green light for it but it may change everything at any moment

WWE will undoubtedly claim this historic moment as their own despite the Russian Circus having females perform in KSA and women performing in athletic events for the Saudi Arabia Olympic team.

It is still a great thing to hear. Especially considering how long Nattie and Bliss had to travel to make the event.

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.
