Stephanie McMahon gave an update on WWE’s effort to make history in Saudi Arabia during her speech at the Celebrating Women in Sports Luncheon event on Wednesday.
During the event, the WWE executive and on-air performer was asked about WWE’s dealings in Saudi Arabia and the correlation to women and their female WWE Superstars performing at their events in the market.
According to Stephanie, WWE will, in fact, promote and present a women’s match in the Saudi Arabian market “in the near future.”
On Spectrum Sports 360, Stephanie McMahon gave an interview after her speech where she spoke more about the subject.
