WWE signed a ten-year deal with Saudi Arabia for a ton of money. Those shows bring a lot of revenue for WWE and that is how they are able to afford such huge names. The company will go back to Saudi Arabia in 2021, and it appears that they have landed on a date.
Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast tweeted out that he heard October is the current month for WWE’s return to Saudi Arabia. The projected date right now is Thursday, October 21st.
Hearing from source:
WWE will be returning to Saudi Arabia in October.
(If there are no restrictions at that time)
Heard 10/21 but have not double confirmed.
Any Saudi shows that WWE missed due to the pandemic will be tacked onto the end of their existing deal. The company is now effectively in an 11-year partnership with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
WWE has a lot of things in the pipeline as they get back on the road with live touring. They aren’t going to pass up that money from Saudi Arabia either, and it appears they have plans to keep those trips going.
