WWE officials are planning for their next event in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Last week, WWE held the Super ShowDown pay-per-view event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the Mohammed Abdou Arena that was headlined by Goldberg dethroning Bray Wyatt as the Universal Champion.
PWInsider reports that WWE is looking at returning in late October or early November. What’s interesting is the fact that a return date of Thursday, August 20 was pitched at one point in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
However, it was nixed due to it being close to SummerSlam as well as the concern of the temperatures during this time of the year in the country. It would be in the 100-120 degree range.
Although not confirmed, it’s possible that WWE goes with the Crown Jewel 2020 name for the next event this fall like they did last October.
WWE started its deal with Saudi Arabia in 2018. The sports entertainment company signed a 10-year partnership with the Saudi General Sports Authority to bring annual WWE events to Saudi Arabia in support of a new campaign, Saudi Vision 2030.
