• WWE Might Face Issues At Next Saudi Arabia PPV
Saudi Arabia officials prefer their WWE PPVs on Friday and that might be a problem next time as SmackDown will move to Friday nights when it moves to FOX later this year.
Below is what the Wrestling Observer noted regarding this:
“Right now for 11/1, the WWE has a listing for a FOX show from Newark, NJ and a show in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and King Saad University Stadium. So that would either mean split crews or they’d have to change the Saudi date.”
It won’t be surprising if WWE decides to have only the RAW roster work this show (as most WWE wrestlers don’t like to work Saudi Arabia PPVs anyway).
Also, the next Saudi Arabia PPV might feature women in action as well.
