• Women Set To Wrestle In Saudi Arabia In 2020
According to Brad Shepard, the women of WWE will be able to wrestle in Saudi Arabia starting next year:
“According to a source in WWE, the General Sports Authority (GSA) and WWE have reached a deal on women’s matches for future events in Saudi Arabia in 2020.
I’m told the deal was overseen by Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud himself.”
This is something that WWE has wanted to happen for a long time, as this would be another milestone that WWE can brag about when they bring up their Women’s Revolution.
