WWE has another trip to Saudi Arabia coming up, but certain Superstars will not be allowed to come. The company will not tell someone to get vaccinated, but international travel is a different story.

According to a report fromFightful, all WWE talent and staff traveling to Saudi Arabia must be vaccinated. This is not revealing any talent’s medical date, but seeing that it is a qualification to make that trip you can pretty much know who is vaccinated on the roster.

While we won’t disclose someone’s personal vaccination status, we have confirmed with WWE and numerous staff and talent that in order to travel to Saudi Arabia for their upcoming WWE Elimination Chamber show, vaccination is required. One step beyond that, a booster is also required.

An email was sent to many talent and staff reminding them of this recently. 


Saudi Arabia has made the call in the past to exclude certain WWE talent from their show. Malakai Black wasn’t allowed to go because of the religious symbolism in his tattoos. Sami Zayn was also not allowed to make that trip due to his heritage as a Syrian, and this is likely still the case. It turns out that Saudi Arabia can also add anyone unvaccinated to the list.

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.
