What’s the story?

Per an announcement put forth by Saudi Arabia, women will be allowed to participate in sporting/non-sporting events in the country.

The aforementioned announcement has now set the professional wrestling community abuzz regarding speculation that WWE’s show that’s set to take place in Saudi Arabia later this year may feature Women’s matches.

In case you didn’t know…

The WWE recently signed a 10-year contract that allows the promotion to put forth WWE shows in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

One of the 2018 calendar year’s biggest sports-entertainment events—WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble PPV—took place at the King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia last month.

The heart of the matter

As noted, WWE is set to organize yet another major show in Saudi Arabia later this year, as the promotion puts up shop in Riyadh for a major event.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is regarded as one of the fastest growing nations in the world, and under the visionary leadership of 32-year-old Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, several social changes and women’s rights causes are presently receiving an impetus in Saudi Arabia.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has now announced the “Quality of Life program 2020”—something that promises to elevate the living experience for one and all in the nation.

One of the key features of the aforementioned Quality of Life program, is that women will be allowed to participate in any sporting or non-sporting events in Saudi Arabia—with said program now effective in the Middle-East nation.

In reference to the same, the belief is that WWE’s major show in Riyadh that takes place this November could feature Women’s matches on the card.

Honestly speaking, it’s awesome to see that the world keeps progressing, as regards women’s rights and matters of the sort.

If the grandeur of WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble is any indication of things to come, one has got to look forward to many more years of great WWE shows in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
