WWE’s 10-year deal with Saudi Arabia will continue, even with the UFC merger, and now the company has confirmed their next premium live event in the controversial country. Jeddah will host Night of Champions, and it will likely be a huge show.
WWE has the ability to bring in top talent for their Saudi Arabia shows, because they have such a large budget. This money has seen part-timers make a journey around the world to perform in a packed stadium, but they were compensated very well.
WWE’s next premium live event in Saudi Arabia will go down on May 27th in Jeddah. The company confirmed this in an announcement today, along with a graphic for WWE Night of Champions.
No matches have been announced for this big event yet. Odds are, they will get some premium names for the show. Roman Reigns is not working Backlash on May 6th, so it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see him wrestle in Jeddah on the 27th.
We will have more on this ongoing story here at Ringside News. Keep checking back as more information is known about the upcoming Saudi Arabian event.
