WWE Crown Jewel will see Natalya take on Lacey Evans. This is a big match for Saudi Arabia even though those two have wrestled many times before.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the first-ever WWE match in Saudi Arabia. He said the issue was never about what the women will wear to the ring. In fact, it was part of the agreement that they will wear different ring attire.

“They’re not going to wear their US wrestling outfits on the show. That was part of the agreement that they won’t. So that was never an issue.”

For some reason, Saudi Arabia didn’t want female wrestling until now. WWE Crown Jewel will see history being made as Lacey Evans takes on Natalya.


The ring attire that Evans and Nattie wear at WWE Crown Jewel will likely look very different than what fans are used to. Their arms and legs are likely to be totally covered. They might never wear the same pro wrestling attire to the ring again, but those outfits will undoubtedly be a part of pro wrestling history.

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.
