WWE last went to Saudi Arabia in February 2020
WWE have confirmed the company will be returning to the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia with Crown Jewel 2021 in October.
An advertisement for upcoming event ran during this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view on Saturday night, announcing that Vince McMahon's promotion would be heading back to the Middle East in October.
Reports have indicated over the past couple of months that WWE were planning a resumption of their big-money deal with Saudi Arabia towards the end of 2021. The COVID-19 Pandemic and subsequent halting of touring for WWE meant the promotion has not been to return to the country since presenting WWE Super ShowDown in February 2020.
WWE has been hosting shows in Saudi Arabia since 2014 and, in 2018, announced a 10-year strategic multi-platform partnership between the promotion and the Saudi General Sports Authority, which sees the company host two pay-per-views a year in the country.
No matches have been confirmed for Crown Jewel 2021 as of yet but rumours indicate the show could play host to WWE's King Of The Ring, and Queen Of The Ring, Finals.
