It appears as though last night’s Greatest Royal Rumble event will not be the last WWE show held in Saudi Arabia in 2018.
Uncensored Wrestling confirmed on Twitter that Turki Al-Sheikh announced another major WWE event will be held in the Saudi Arabian capital city of Riyadh in November. No further information has yet been released on the show, whether this could be another special live feature for the WWE Network is yet to be determined but with the success of the Greatest Royal Rumble and the global buzz that WWE has generated from the show it is definitely not out of the realms of possibility.

Last night’s Greatest Royal Rumble event also stirred up some controversy, most notably the fact that no Women’s division performers were permitted on the show. Early on in the broadcast WWE played a video promoting the culture change that Saudi Arabia had been experiencing over the past few years, including the fact that Women were now permitted to drive in Saudi Arabia.
Former Women’s Champion Sasha Banks appeared to be unimpressed with the segment, she tweeted “I’m so inspired” during the event. Whilst this is a cleverly worded tweet it could easily be seen as a sarcastic jab, check out her comments below and let us know what you think in the comments.
