There’s a reason for that. WWE is entering into one of its busier seasons and that could make things a little more interesting as we move forward. With Summerslam out of the way, it is time to move on towards the last quarter of the year, where we will be seeing several major WWE events in a row. Some of these are going to be more interesting than others, but one stands out above the rest for a fairly specific reason.
WWE is currently scheduled to return to Saudi Arabia at some point in October. Rumors have been circulating that the show will feature the finals of both the King of the Ring and the Queen of the Ring, neither of which has officially been announced. It might seem a bit strange to have WWE going to Saudi Arabia for a women’s tournament but there is a reason behind their logic.
According to Fightful Select, WWE does not feel the need to announce the tournaments in advance as they are not worried about promoting a women’s tournament final in Saudi Arabia. The company feels that they have already broken the barrier for women’s wrestling in the country so there is nothing to worry about when it comes to making women’s wrestling interesting. The event, titled Crown Jewel, is expected to take place on October 21 in Saudi Arabia.
There have been some history moments in Saudi Arabia. Check out how women’s wrestling works there, plus how a tournament win can work:
Opinion: I can get WWE’s thoughts on this, but they might want to announce the tournament sooner rather than later. It would not surprise me to see them setting something up once Extreme Rules wraps up, mainly because a tournament like either of these two doesn’t need a ton of work. This should work out rather well, and I’m curious to see who wins both tournaments.
What do you expect from the tournaments? Who will win each of them? Let us know in the comments below.
