WWE Reportedly Feel They've 'Broken The Barrier' For Women's Wrestling In Saudi Arabia
WWE have presented two women's matches in Saudi Arabia so far
WWE believe they will have no problem promoting women's matches at their future shows in Saudi Arabia as they've 'broken the barrier'.
Lacey Evans and Natalya became the first ever women to wrestle a WWE match in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel in 2019, with the 70,000 fans in attendance at the King Fahd International Stadium showing their support for the duo.
Having made history in 2019, WWE presented Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia in early 2020 which saw Bayley defend the SmackDown Women's Championship against Naomi, and Fightful Select is reporting that the promotion is not anticipating any further problems with women's wrestling at the shows in the future.
WWE is reportedly planning on presenting both the King Of The Ring Final and the Queen Of The Ring Final at the Crown Jewel show in October and, having 'broken the barrier, the company is not concerned about advertising women's matches for the Saudi Arabia shows going forward.
Crown Jewel 2021 is set to be presented on Thursday 21 October 2021.
