• Latest On Possibility Of Female Wrestlers Participating At WWE Crown Jewel 2019
WWE officials were hoping earlier this year that they’ll convince Saudi Arabia officials to have female wrestlers compete at their shows.
That’s the reason behind WWE bringing Natalya & Alexa Bliss to Saudi Arabia in June for WWE Super ShowDown 2019 PPV, in hopes that they’ll do Natalya vs. Alexa Bliss if the Saudi officials agreed.
However, the Saudi officials didn’t grant WWE’s request and the PPV remained an all-men’s show.
A fan asked Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer if there’s any change regarding this situation and it looks like there’s not going to be any change anytime soon.
Below is what Meltzer replied:
“Unless something changes, there are no women’s matches scheduled. It came down to the wire last time and they were told no at the end, after bringing Nattie and Alexa to Saudi Arabia.”
