• Date For WWE Super ShowDown 2022 In Saudi Arabia Revealed
In 2020, WWE began doing one of the two Saudi Arabia PPVs of the year before WrestleMania, and that is going to be the case this year as well.
According to Andrew Zarian, WWE is planning to return to Saudi Arabia on February 19th for Super ShowDown 2022. This will happen on a Saturday, as opposed to the usual Thursday PPV in Saudi.
While no matches have been announced for this event so far, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg are expected to be a part of this event.
WWE’s last visit to Saudi Arabia was on October 21, 2021 for the Crown Jewel PPV, where the top matches on the card were Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns, Goldberg vs. Bobby Lashley and Edge vs. Seth Rollins inside Hell in a Cell.
Many fans called Crown Jewel 2021 WWE’s best Saudi Arabia PPV to date.
The last Super ShowDown PPV took place in 2020, where The Undertaker, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar had matches.

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (January 6, 1985) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1985, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
