WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia reportedly have a ten-year deal for two events per year which goes through 2027. WWE’s last event in Saudi Arabia was the Super Showdown PPV from February 2020 just before the Covid-19 pandemic shutdown.
Now that WWE is touring again, the belief is that the company will be producing another event in Saudi Arabia before the end of 2021. Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast provided an update…
WWE gets $50+ million from the Saudi government for each event. If true (Andrew has a good track record), would expect WWE to confirm by Thursday's earnings call since it would improve financial outlook for 2021 and allow for clearer guidance. https://t.co/jWTwnYgGKP
