• Backstage News On WWE Bringing Back Night Of Champions
WWE was set to introduce a new premium live event titled ‘King & Queen Of The Ring’ on May 27th in Saudi Arabia.
However, that isn’t the case anymore.
WWE has replaced this event with ‘Night Of Champions’, which last took place in 2015 (where Sting got injured in the main event match against Seth Rollins for the WWE World Title).

Wrestling Observer reported the following about WWE bringing back Night Of Champions:
“Regarding the reason the 5/27 show in Saudi Arabia was changed from King & Queen Of The Ring to Night Of Champions was a booking decision. We were told it will become obvious why after the Puerto Rico show (Backlash) and in the build to the show.”
May 27th is the day Roman Reigns will complete 1,000 days as champion.
Below is what the upcoming WWE PLE schedule looks like:
May 6: Backlash in San Juan, Puerto Rico
May 27: Night Of Champions in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
July 1: Money In The Bank in London, England
August 5: SummerSlam in Detroit, Michigan
