Corbin went on to add that, following the fallout from the controversial Hell in a Cell main event, Roman Reigns will defend the WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar in a Triple Threat match at the show.
Ever since the Greatest Royal Rumble this past April, rumors have been rampant that WWE could be making a return to the kingdom of Saudi.
There are also reports that this event could mark the in-ring return of the ‘Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels.
