WWE Hoping To Have Women Compete At Saudi Arabia PPV This Fall
Last month a WWE internal travel schedule was revealed which included all PPV events for the rest of 2019 .
The schedule did not include a Women’s PPV, and although the possibility is open for the company to have one this year, the hope is female stars will be able to compete at WWE’s Saudi Arabia event on 11/1/19.
According to Rajah.com, one of the reasons the company stayed away from including WWE Evolution PPV on their internal travel sheets is due the hopes they can convince the Saudi Arabian government to let female talent compete at the PPV this fall.
Regardless if the Saudi Arabian government allows women to compete, the WWE still may due an all female event, and simply announce it internally at a later date.
Triple H spoke on the omission of female talent from Saudi Arabian events last year with the BBC, and stated they hoped they would eventually be allowed to compete.
“While, right now, women are not competing in the event, we have had discussions about that and we believe and hope that, in the next few years they will be.
“The country is in the middle of a shift in how it is dealing with that – the position is changing, and rights are changing, as are the way women are handled and treated in society.
“We think that’s a great thing and we’re excited to be at the forefront of that change.”
WWE has two events scheduled in Saudi Arabia this year, the first on 5/3/19, and the second on 11/1/19. The company signed a 10-year deal with the Kingdom which ends in 2028.
