WWE will travel to Saudi Arabia next week for the Night Of Champions 2023 premium live event.

Below is the current match-card for the show:

– Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes

Tournament Finals To Crown The Inaugural World Heavyweight Champion: Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (c) vs. The Bloodline (Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa)

– Trish Stratus vs. Becky Lynch

RAW Women’s Championship Match: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka

Intercontinental Championship Match: Gunther (c) vs. Mustafa Ali

According to insider source BoozerRasslin, WWE is planning a 2-day extravaganza for the Saudi Arabia fans for the Night Of Champions weekend, similar to the WrestleMania weekend festivities.

WWE talent and people from 2K Games will be present. Also, Sami Zayn, Mustafa Ali and WWE’s other Muslim talent will visit Mecca, Islam’s holiest city.

Also, to make this event feel even more special, WWE’s marketing strategy is to promote this as a “Triple Main Event” show, with the main event matches being the World Heavyweight Title match, the Undisputed Tag Team Title match, and the rematch between The Beast & The American Nightmare.

When it comes to the financial side, WWE’s Saudi Arabia events are almost as big as WrestleMania. They get paid somewhere around $50 million per event from the Saudi Ministry Of Sport.

The following matches are expected to get added to this event:

RAW Women’s Championship Match: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka

SmackDown Women’s Championship Match: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Natalya

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez (c) vs. Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler
