Last month, it was reported that WWE will hold shows on May 3 and November 1 in Saudi Arabia but the venues for these shows have yet to be determined.
However, things have changed as the event next month has been delayed and rescheduled for June 7th. Dave Meltzer reported the news in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. WWE has yet to officially announce this show.
“The only thing we heard about the first date is that it was being moved for logistical purposes,” Meltzer wrote.
Thus, this means that The Undertaker’s next appearance under the WWE banner has been pushed back. It was noted that “The Deadman” was contacted and had agreed to return on the May 3rd show. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar was also scheduled on that show. As noted, The Undertaker currently doesn’t have a match planned for WrestleMania 35.
Due to the schedule change, it will force WWE to postpone live events on 6/7 to 6/9 in Denver, Boise, Oakland, and Stockton. Come early June, WWE talent will have a rough week of travel.
WWE holds RAW and SmackDown TV events in Austin and Laredo on 6/3 and 6/4. Then, they will fly to Saudi Arabia on June 7th and then return to San Jose on 6/10 and Sacramento on 6/11 for RAW and SmackDown.
