• Winning Streak Going On In WWE To Keep Saudi Arabia Officials Happy

According to the Wrestling Observer, Mansoor (WWE’s first-ever Saudi Arabian-born wrestler) is on a 49 match winning streak because WWE officials want to keep Saudi Arabia officials happy.

It should be noted that Mansoor has suffered losses in WWE, but he has won his last 49 matches.

Mansoor made his first-ever WWE appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV in Saudi Arabia in April 2018.

Mansoor only wrestles on NXT, 205 Live & WWE Main Event, and has never competed on RAW & SmackDown (which are WWE’s main weekly shows).

However, Mansoor has competed at WWE’s big Saudi Arabia PPVs. At Super ShowDown 2019, he won a 51-man Battle Royal. At Crown Jewel 2019, he defeated Cesaro in a singles match. At Super ShowDown 2020, he defeated Dolph Ziggler in a singles match.

Mansoor (age 25) got married recently and made the announcement last night.

We recently noted that WWE is very likely to return to Saudi Arabia at some point within the second half of 2021.

Wrestling Club has now confirmed the expected location for that upcoming overseas WWE Network LIVE special event on their Twitter account:

“The Super Dome in Jeddah is expected to host the upcoming WWE Show in Saudi Arabia”

The Tweet has since been deleted, so they probably released confidential information ahead of time.

The last time WWE promoted a show in Saudi Arabia was Super ShowDown 2020 on February 27, 2020, where WCW Legend Goldberg defeating Universal Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in the main event to win the Title.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (April 27, 2015) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away

On this day in 2015, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Verne Gagne at the age of 89 due to alzheimer’s disease.

Verne used to be a multiple time amateur wrestling champion and even represented the United States Olympic Team at the 1948 Olympic Games.

Most Old School Wrestling fans remember Gagne as the promoter of the legendary ‘American Wrestling Association’ territory, including 10 title reigns as their World Heavyweight Champion.

In 2006, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his son Greg Gagne, the night before WrestleMania 22, years after he was already inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame in 1993.

† REST IN PEACE VERNE GAGNE

February 26, 1926 – April 27, 2015
