WWE will return to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at King Saud University Stadium on Thursday, October 31st.
PWInsider reported the news and it has been confirmed to us by a WWE source. This would be WWE’s fourth event in the country as part of a lucrative 10-year deal that calls for two shows per year.
The previous date penciled in for the show was Friday, November 1st, which would have been on the same day as SmackDown Live on Fox. Since most of the male roster would have been overseas, it would have been impossible for them to be at SmackDown but that is no longer a problem for WWE now that they have locked in Thursday.
The October 31st date might not sit well with some of the talent because it means they will not be able to spend Halloween at home with their family.
