We’re getting to that time again when the very uncomfortable topic of WWE going to Saudi Arabia will once again be brought up.
The country’s human rights history, its attitude to women and the well publicised state-ordered murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi still hasn’t been enough to force WWE to pull out of their multi-million dollar contract to host shows twice a year in the country.
It has made people wonder where else WWE would hold a show if the money was right, with one fan asking Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer whether Vince would have held a show in Nazi Germany.
Of course he would have. That’s not even up for debate. https://t.co/hYuEDPGliP

You really do have to think what would have to happen for Vince and WWE to pull out of their contract with Saudi Arabia. I’m not going to speculate.
WWE will next head to Saudi Arabia on June 7 for an as yet unnamed show which will feature Brock Lesnar, Goldberg and the Undertaker among others.
