The booking decisions for and after the event raise many questions

With the return of WWE to Saudi Arabia, we were prepared to see a number of different parties come together to put together a grand show which can be boasted about for years. WWE tried to pull off a WrestleMania type event in Jeddah and brought in all the ingredients to do so.

What was missing was some solid storylines for many of the matches, and good creative writing to ensure that each match becomes enjoyable.

While the show did deliver some high spots, it fell apart in many places which made many of the matches and bookings questionable.

In this article, we will look at the biggest questions we have from the show and how they made an impact on either the show, the storylines, or the superstars involved.


#4 The 24/7 Championship

Putting the title on R-Truth has been a good decision

When the 24/7 Championship was introduced, it was met with mixed reviews over the internet by the WWE Universe. While some liked the concept but hated the design of the belt, many couldn’t figure out why WWE would even launch the championship.

After R-Truth won the belt, he has made it one of the most fun aspects of WWE Network today, and we are usually treated to an amusing video where superstars are trying to find R-Truth and win the title from him.

A missed opportunity for the championship came during the Super ShowDown event where the Battle Royal was held. WWE could have entered R-Truth into the Battle Royal too and made it a fun affair where superstars would have been more interested in keeping Truth in the match and trying to pin him for the championship rather than competing to win the Battle Royal.

This would have added more flavor to the repetitive use of Battle Royals where superstars usually don’t get to win much.
