What's the story?

The world of wrestling is still reeling from the impact of the Greatest Royal Rumble. Fans in Saudi Arabia may be in for a treat again later this year.

WWE is apparently set to return to the country for yet another show in the month of November. We thank Uncensored Wrestling and SEScoops for the update.

In case you didn't know...

The Greatest Royal Rumble was a successful collaboration between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia recently. The company put together a set of marquee events including 7 title matches and a 50-man Royal Rumble.

The event was a sell-out, and was watched around the world on the WWE Network. Braun Strowman emerged victorious in the 50-Man Royal Rumble and Matt Hardy/Bray Wyatt claimed the vacant RAW Tag Team Championships. These were the two main talking points following the show.

The heart of the matter

Uncensored Wrestling put out the following Tweet on their official social media account:

Few other details are known beyond this Tweet. What we do know is that after the hype that was generated through the Greatest Royal Rumble after the event was over and done, WWE must be keen on prolonging their relationship with the government of Saudi Arabia with a host of events in the country.

What's next?

We will put out another post when the event officially does get confirmed by WWE themselves. We're uncertain whether WWE will confirm the show immediately after the success of the previous event, or if they may want to announce it closer to November. Stay tuned to stay up-to-date with this update.

Author's take

WWE is a global brand and it's no surprise that they're constantly looking to make strong inroads into international markets. Having consolidated their presence in Saudi Arabia, they would want to maSke their brand stronger across the country.
