Recently, Jerry “The King” Lawler indicated on his “Dinner With The King” podcast that WWE was intent on paying their female talent for the Greatest Royal Rumble show. This is despite not being able to appear on the show due to the culture of Saudi Arabia.
PWInsider have said they’ve confirmed female Superstars are being paid as if they were on the show. This was something beyond the control of WWE and the women themselves.
WWE is reportedly making major money from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with the new 10-year deal the two sides have made. There are now expected to be more events held in the future.
Take a look back at the Greatest Royal Rumble below in a video uploaded to WWE’s official YouTube channel:
It is unknown if every woman on the main roster in WWE received the money or if WWE only chose to send money to the women who would’ve featured on the card. Wrestling Rumors will provide an update on this news if it does come out.
