We have NXT US, NXT UK, and we could be getting NXT Saudi Arabia before too long…
PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported several weeks ago that WWE higherups were planning to do an NXT Takeover: Saudi Arabia show.
It has also been speculated that the reason NXT Takeover: XXV was announced so late is because it was actually scheduled to take place the day before WWE Super ShowDown in the Kingdom, but plans changed.
Speaking to the media after WWE Super ShowDown, NXT boss Triple H discussed the possibility of an NXT Takeover event taking place in Saudi Arabia, and what would need to happen for the country to get its known NXT brand like the US and UK:
“The goal is to be able to find talent here, recruit talent here, train talent, and to be able to build something off the ground here. Now, whether that’s bringing in NXT TakeOver here or whether that’s building a brand here will yet to be determined. It just depends on how quickly we can find talent and how quickly we can train them.”

One of the stars WWE have found in Saudi Arabia is Mansoor. The Saudi Arabian wrestler actually won the 51-man Battle Royale in his home country at WWE Super ShowDown in what was genuinely an emotional moment.
