WWE Will Host Multi-Day Try Out In Saudi Arabia Later This Year

Will Mansoor find a tag team partner...

After Crown Jewel in November 2019, WWE announced they had extended their partnership with Saudi Arabia, whereby they will hold two events in the Middle Eastern Kingdom every year until 2027. The company's relationship with the Kingdom has attracted mass criticism, with some of WWE's own Superstars refusing to travel to the Middle East.

This hasn't stopped WWE, however, and the company is "excited" to promote closer ties with Saudi Arabia as they recently announced they will be holding their largest-ever tryout in the country in June.

The tryout will take place over four days in the country's capital Riyadh. According to the announcement, 50 athletes will be given the opportunity to earn a WWE developmental contract should they impress the company's trainers.

As part of the announcement, Triple H said: "We are excited to return to Saudi Arabia following the success of our first tryout in 2018 where we recruited a variety of elite athletes from the Middle East, including standout talent Mansoor, who has already played a meaningful role in various WWE events in Saudi Arabia.

"I have a message for every athlete and performer in Saudi Arabia who has a dream of becoming a WWE Superstar. WWE is coming to Riyadh to help you make that happen. This is your chance to take an opportunity and one day you could be walking down the ramp as a WWE Superstar while thousands of fans chant your name."
