WWE returns to Saudi Arabia for Saturday’s Elimination Chamber premium live event. The company has walked a fine line by doing business with the controversial regime. Vince McMahon’s organization gets paid huge money to put on shows in the country.

There is always an effort to make the Saudi shows seem like more of a cultural exchange than a monetary one. WWE puts over the “ultra-modern” city of Jeddah and notes some of the social progress that the country has made. Critics have said WWE is supporting a genocidal regime with every event they put on in Saudi Arabia.

The show will go on whether fans like it or not. The WWE superstars appear to have already arrived in Jeddah. A video going around on Twitter shows Goldberg and The Miz as they danced the night away.

“The Miz and Goldberg in Jeddah.”

Goldberg and Miz appear to be having a blast. Their Saudi hosts seem to be welcoming. WWE is doing all it can to continue to maintain its lucrative relationship with the middle eastern nation.

WWE Elimination Chamber kicks off at a special start time of noon eastern on February 19. Goldberg will challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. Miz is set to continue his rivalry with Rey Mysterio. Fans can catch the show in its entirety live on Peacock.
