You have to start somewhere. There are a lot of controversial aspects to wrestling, from the violence to some of the storylines being a bit too intense to some of the storylines being a bit too immature and all points in between. With that being said, there are few shows that are less controversial than the Saudi Arabia shows. WWE goes to the country a few times a year for special cards and we may know a featured match for the next show.
Back in 2013, the Wyatt Family made their debuts on Monday Night Raw after a successful career down in NXT. Their first target was Kane, as Wyatt went after one of the show’s resident monsters. The feud went well for Wyatt, who won their major match and went on to become a two time World Champion. The second reign is still going on at the moment but the past may be repeating itself.
An image has been making the rounds on Twitter showing an advertisement for the next Saudi Arabian show featuring the Fiend defending the Universal Title against Kane in an Inferno match. This would be the same kind of match that Wyatt defeated Kane in during Wyatt’s main roster debut at Summerslam 2013. It should be noted that neither the match nor the show itself have been confirmed by WWE, meaning that it is difficult to tell if this is a legitimate advertisement or not.

We’ve seen this one before. Check out the first version of the match:
Opinion: I’m not sure if I believe this one but it is certainly something that sounds rather interesting. I know the Saudi Arabian shows aren’t all that popular, but it can be a bit fun to see some of the different matches that they throw out there for a change. The Fiend is a special attraction and putting him out there against Kane again is fine for a one off match. Assuming this is true of course, which may not be the case.
Do you think the match will happen? Do you want it to? Let us know in the comments below.
