Vince McMahon Hasn't Ruled Out WWE Returning To Saudi Arabia In 2020

We could see one more Saudi show by the end of the year...

On February 27, WWE returned to Saudi Arabia for Super ShowDown. The pay-per-view is widely regarded as one of the worst shows the company has put on in recent memory as a 53-year-old Goldberg defeated "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt to win the Universal Championship, Brock Lesnar vanquished Ricochet in 90 seconds, and Mansoor continued his winning streak in his home country. 

It is considered unlikely that WWE will return to the Middle Eastern Kingdom for a second pay-per-view in 2020 because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but Vince McMahon didn't rule out holding another Saudi show during the annual stockholders meeting

McMahon said: "Oh, that's a possibility. Obviously, Saudi has been going through what we in America have been going through. As far as COVID's concerned. Right now, I think they're doing a little bit better than we are, considerably better. So there's a possibility that we'll still get a show in before the end of the year, as was scheduled. But we're not certain because, you know, who can be certain about what COVID-19 is going to do."

As of writing, Saudi Arabia has the 13th most coronavirus cases in the world as 271,000 people have tested positive for the virus.  As a result of COVID-19, 2789 people have died.
