WWE – Saudi Arabia Return
The pandemic seems to be slowing down. This means traveling might once again become a possibility.
WWE has had a long partnership with Saudi Arabia. Sadly, live events in this region came to an abrupt halt when COVID-19 hit.
According to reports, WWE’s jet was seen taking an international trip recently. This is the first time it’s flown overseas since the coronavirus hit.
Where was it headed? The destination was said to be the Middle East.
A Return To Saudi Is “On The Table”
The Wrestle Votes Twitter handle recently posted the possibility of a WWE event in Saudi. Sources from the company have stated that they are likely to return by the end of 2021.

This could mean WWE superstars could be heading back to this area of the world, sooner than later. This year’s WrestleMania was the first time the WWE performed in front of a live crowd in a year.
WWE live event tour dates have not opened up across the U.S. as of yet. But, it’s clear the company is gearing up for this and is in the planning stages.
Still, the company does have its eyes focused on Saudi Arabia. Sounds like the company is eager to return to pre-pandemic life, as many of us are.
