WWE’s deal with Saudi Arabia is far from over and Vince McMahon’s company is getting ready to take another trip to the Middle East soon enough.
According to Fightful Select, WWE is looking at a February date for their Saudi Arabian return. That has been the plan for months, dating all the way back to their last Saudi trip. No date has been publicly announced yet, but sources in the company reportedly said that February and late fall seem to be the two target times for those trips.
Right now it appears that the working date for the next Saudi Arabian show is February 19th. That would also fall in line with their new schedule.
As of now, staff and talent have the date in their internal calendars as February 19, which is a Saturday, and in line with their new Saturday PPV schedule. This is a change from previous weekday shows there, and gives a travel day in between the event and WWE Raw.
WWE has a lot going on and a ton of money is flowing in thanks to their deal with Saudi Arabia. We’ll have to see who they can rope into going back to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but they usually bring some huge names out of the woodwork for those shows.
