The hits just keep on coming. WWE is in a weird place at the moment with its major broadcasting deals. While they wait on the SmackDown Live move to FOX in October, there is also the major deal with Saudi Arabia, which has not been very well received by the fans. These deals both bring in a lot of money, but what would happen if WWE had to choose? We may now know that answer.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE currently has a live SmackDown Live as well as a Saudi Arabia show scheduled for Friday, November 1. At the moment, there is no word on what WWE is going to do to address the issue, though there is a possibility of working both shows with a split crew. There is also the chance of moving the Saudi Arabia show, though all of them have been held on a Friday so far.
There is a lot happening on these Saudi Arabia shows. Check out a recap of Super ShowDown:
Opinion: How did WWE not see this coming in advance? Didn’t they know that the shows were going to overlap a long time ago? Anyway, the best solution would seem to be changing the Saudi Arabian show as there are other dates that could accommodate the show. I’d hope we don’t get a split crew show, as the full roster shows are hardly worth seeing in the first place.
What will WWE do about this? What are you expecting from the next Saudi Arabia show? Let us know in the comments below.
