It’s become routine that WWE returns to Saudi Arabia each year to feature some of their Premium Live Events, and it looks like this year will be no different.
The plans for the Saudi Arabia show this Fall are currently being finalized, according to a new report from PWInsider. It adds that WWE and their superstars will once again be returning around Halloween time, likely the first week of November or the final week of October.
A conflicting report from Andrew Zarian of F4Wonline.com noted that WWE is actually scheduled to return to the Kingdom in September, and word is that this will be for TLC 2022. A specific date and venue for the TLC show has not been confirmed as of this writing.
WWE and the Saudi General Sports Authority announced in 2018 that they were entering into a 10-year strategic multi-platform partnership to support the Saudi Vision 2030 initiative, which is the Kingdom’s social and economic reform program. The deal called for two events to be held per year, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced delays in 2020 and 2021. WWE visited Saudi Arabia for Greatest Royal Rumble and Crown Jewel in 2018, Super ShowDown and Crown Jewel in 2019, Super ShowDown in 2020, Crown Jewel in 2021, and Elimination Chamber in 2022 so far.
The most recent event that aired live from Saudi Arabia, Elimination Chamber, took place just months ago, on February 19. It continued setting the stage for WrestleMania 38 at the time and included memorable moments like Brock Lesnar regaining his WWE Title, Bianca Belair earning her WWE RAW Women’s Title shot at ‘Mania, and an impressive return to singles action from WWE Hall of Famer Lita.
