WWE had Alexa Bliss and Natalya travel to Saudi Arabia for the most recent Super ShowDown event in hopes to have them perform. The Saudi government unfortunately did now allow the match to take place, despite negotiations with WWE which broke down on the day the event took place.
WWE’s next event in Saudi Arabia is scheduled for November 1 in Riyadh.
