— It was originally reported that WWE would be returning to Saudi Arabia this fall, with October being the rumored month. PWInsider.com reports that WWE has finalized the date and it will be on Thursday, October 21 with the event being held in Riyadh. A Thursday in November was also reportedly considered but either way, it will be the company’s first event back in the country since early 2020 as the two sides work through a 10-year deal. For those wondering, WWE’s scheduled Smackdown event on Friday, October 22 is in Wichita, KS which would be an approximately 18-hour flight from Riyadh.
— Also as reported before, WWE is looking to bring back the King of the Ring tournament as well as hold their inaugural Queen of the Ring tournament this year and they are penciling in the finals to be held at this event in Saudi Arabia.
