• Saudi Arabia Officials Offer $20 Million For WWF Legend To Become WWE Champion & Work Their April Show

We previously noted how WWE’s big money deal with Saudi Arabia is going to result in the in-ring return of Shawn Michaels at the WWE Crown Jewel PPV on November 2. Saudi Arabia officials are also funding appearances of stars like The Undertaker, HBK, Brock Lesnar and more to build-up to the WWE Crown Jewel PPV.

We have noted multiple times before that Saudi Arabia officials are big fans of Old School Wrestlers and requested a number of Old School wrestlers to work the Greatest Royal Rumble earlier this year.

Well, the Saudi officials now want another big Old School Star to appear at their show.

According to the Dirty Sheets, Saudi Arabia officials want Old School WWF Legend The Rock to appear as WWE Champion at the planned April 2019 show in Saudi Arabia and they have offered to give $20 million for this appearance!

Dirty Sheets noted last month that WWE officials have discussed Roman Reigns vs. The Rock for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35 and Rock is reportedly set to make $4 million from that WrestleMania match if it goes down.

If The Rock agrees to work WrestleMania 35, then it is almost certain that he will work the Saudi Arabia show as well and become the champion. This would mean that The Rock would make make $24 million in a single month from just 2 matches!

Dirty Sheets also noted that if The Rock walks out of the Saudi Arabia show still the champion and works SummerSlam 2019 (where he would drop the Title), then The Rock would make a total of $26 million from just 3 matches!

No wrestler in the history of Professional Wrestling has made this much money from just 3 matches.

It was noted that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and John Cena have made more than $10 million in a single year, but never this much for just 3 matches!

We’ll keep you updated on this situation.
