WWE to return to Saudi Arabia in February

WWE wrestling will return to Saudi Arabia with an event in Riyadh on February 27.

The upcoming bout at the city’s King Fahd International Stadium was announced during WWE’s Royal Rumble on Monday.

After the WWE’s Crown Jewel event in October, various WWE personalities and personnel reported difficulties leaving the country.

The WWE, however, said that the aircraft that was tasked with flying employees out of the country had faced mechanical issues.

In a statement this week, WWE said that “similar to other US-based companies who plan to continue operations in Saudi Arabia, the company has decided to stage the event”.

“Full-year 2018 guidance is predicated on the staging of the Riyadh event as scheduled,” the statement added.

The WWE SuperShowdown event will be shown live across the WWE Network.
