A new report has indicated when WWE is expected to return to Saudi Arabia in 2023 following Crown Jewel which took place in November.
WWE signed a ten-year deal with Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Entertainment that will see the sports entertainment behemoth produce stadium shows from the country until 2027.
The first of those events to be held was the Greatest Royal Rumble event in April 2018 and since then the Saudi shows have become home to some of the biggest stars WWE has to offer due to the riches available from these shows.
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted when he expects WWE to be returning to the Middle East, saying that the company would be holding its next premium live event there in May. There is no word what the name of that event will be.
The last time the company was in Saudi Arabia was for Crown Jewel on the 5th of November 2022. That event saw Roman Reigns successfully defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in the main event against Logan Paul. Brock Lesnar was also on the card as he defeated Bobby Lashley and the first-ever Last Woman Standing match took place in Saudi Arabia as Bianca Belair retained her Raw Women’s Championship against Bayley.
