WWE is looking to finalize its plans for a return to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi shows have traditionally aired in the afternoon, and the upcoming show is expected to follow suit. WWE has a 10-year partnership with the Saudi General Sports Authority, and it is compensated handsomely to host two events in the country each year.

PWInsider reports that WWE plans to hold its next PPV in Saudi Arabia in late May.

Last year’s first Saudi show was Night of Champions in May, followed by Crown Jewel in November. WWE’s updated PLE 2024 schedule:
