Triple H was asked about women not wrestling at the event and will that change in the coming years. Below are the highlights:
On women not wrestling at the Greatest Royal Rumble event:
“I understand that people are questioning it, but you have to understand that every culture is different and just because you don’t agree with a certain aspect of it, it doesn’t mean it’s not a relevant culture. You can’t dictate to a country or a religion about how they handle things but, having said that, WWE is at the forefront of a women’s evolution in the world and what you can’t do is affect change anywhere by staying away from it.”
On if he thinks women will wrestle in Saudi Arabia one day:
“While, right now, women are not competing in the event, we have had discussions about that and we believe and hope that, in the next few years they will be. That is a significant cultural shift in Saudi Arabia.
The country is in the middle of a shift in how it is dealing with that – the position is changing, and rights are changing, as are the way women are handled and treated in society. We think that’s a great thing and we’re excited to be at the forefront of that change.”

“If I walk out there and pretend to be a King, is that going to be offensive to the royal family?”
Cornette then questioned why don’t the WWE (who are making millions of dollars with their deal with Saudi Arabia) pay their women wrestlers hefty money while they sit back at home during the Greatest Royal Rumble.
Lawler responded the following to this:
“I think that’s exactly what’s happening.”
