WWE Queen of the Ring Reportedly Set For Saudi Arabia


It was reported last week that the WWE planning the first-ever Queen of the Ring tournament. Today it has been reported by Andrew Zarian at the Mat Men Podcast, the tournament is set to be held in Saudi Arabia.

Reports are also suggesting that the WWE will be returning to Saudi Arabia for an event on Thursday October 21st, being shown live on Peacock and WWE Network for fans around the world.

Having an all-women’s tournament in Saudi Arabia would be seen as a huge deal, considering the local laws and restrictions in the country. In recent years, WWE has pushed those rules to allow certain female talent to be featured on their special shows. The first-ever women’s match held in the country by WWE was a match between Natalya and Lacey Evans at Crown Jewel in 2019. Due to local rules, the competitors had to wear full bodysuits, rather than their usual attire.

WWE making more history?

What an iconic, world-changing moment it would be if WWE held an all-women’s tournament in Saudi Arabia. Of course, we’d love to see the first-ever Queen of the Ring tournament held in front of the WWE Universe this side of the world, but this is about much more than that.

This would really stamp down WWE’s impact on local laws and culture after gradually building their relationship with the country. It is a win for all girls and women in Saudi, and around the world.

Who will be competing in the tournament remains to be seen. It is likely WWE may have qualifiers to advance to the tournament with a small handful of women’s superstars headed to Saudi Arabia for the finals.
