How spooky. WWE will be returning for to Saudi Arabia for its bi-annual show on Thursday, October 31 according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.
The show, which is as yet unnamed, will reportedly be held in Riyadh at the King Saud University Stadium.
This will be the fourth show from the country since WWE signed a 10-year deal with Saudi Arabia to host wrestling shows.
Interestingly, and unlike the three previous shows, this one is being held on a Thursday, which means SmackDown Live will still take place on Friday, November 1.
WWE has canceled planned tour dates in Italy for Sunday, November 3 in Florence and Monday, November 4 in Milan after previously canceling dates in England on November 5 in Nottingham, November 6 in Birmingham, November 8 in London, and November 9 event in Minehead.
While fans are used to it by now, it’s fair to say that WWE’s returns to Saudi Arabia are not popular with the majority of fans.
While the company is making millions of dollars in profit for each one, it’s hard to ignore Saudi Arabia’s human rights history and its stance on women and the LGBTQ+ community.
Women are still unable to compete in Saudi Arabia, and a growing number of WWE stars, including Daniel Bryan, John Cena and Kevin Owens, have refused to compete on moral grounds.
