What is being said about WWE’s relationship with Saudi Arabia following Endeavor deal

The sale of WWE to Endeavor was officially announced on Monday. In regards to WWE’s relationship with Saudi Arabia moving forward now that Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel is involved, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted the following…

“Given that Emanuel and Endeavor pulled out of their business relationships with Saudi Arabia years ago after the murder of reporter Jamal Khashoggi, the belief from WWE is that current deal will continue through the terms of the current contract which was for 20 events in total.”

Meltzer added that Emanuel could end up softening his stance before the deal expires and doesn’t have to make a decision until around 2028.

WWE’s King and Queen of the Ring event is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, May 27th 2023.
