Saudi: WWE to Return for King and Queen of the Ring
The WWE is returning to Saudi Arabia for King and Queen of the Ring.
The event will take place at the Jeddah Superdome on May 27 and will be the first live King of the Ring pay-per-view since 2015. Not many details have been released, including which wrestlers will compete.
The last time the WWE crowned a King and Queen of the Ring was at Crown Jewel in October 2021 in Riyadh, with Xavier Woods defeating Finn Balor in the men’s match and Zelina Vega beating Doudrop in the women’s.
This will be the ninth WWE event held in Saudi Arabia after a 10-year partnership was signed between the American wrestling promotion and the country’s Ministry of Sport in 2018. In 2019, it was announced that the WWE had expanded its partnership to hold two “large-scale” shows in the country every year until 2027.
The most recent event was the Crown Jewel. That bout also featured WWE Undisputed Universal champion Roman Reigns, who defeated Logan Paul in the main event.
