• Date For WWE’s Saudi Arabia PPV For 2021
WWE has a 10-year deal with Saudi Arabia to do two pay-per-views events over there every year.
However, WWE couldn’t do 2 events in Saudi Arabia in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But it’s not a problem, as the pending events will be added at the end of the deal (which basically means Saudi Arabia will still get 20 shows in this deal, only the deal will stretch for 11 years now).
According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast, WWE is planning to do a pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia on October 21, 2021 (which will most likely be under the ‘Crown Jewel’ banner).
WWE’s last pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia was WWE Super ShowDown in February 2020. That show featured The Undertaker winning the Tuwaiq Mountain Trophy by defeating AJ Styles, Brock Lesnar retaining the WWE Championship by defeating Ricochet and Goldberg defeating The Fiend to win the Universal Championship.
