WWE is set to return to Saudi Arabia on February 19 for a rare weekend show in the area, and they're planning on bringing a huge concept over -- the Elimination Chamber.
Fightful has learned that as of now, the working plan is for the Elimination Chamber match and structure to take place at the February Saudi Arabia show. We're unsure of the Premium Live Event name will follow that, or if they'll opt for something different. Some staff that is working with WWE in the area have also been briefed of these plans.
Tentative preparation for the Elimination Chamber to take place in Saudi Arabia in February has been going on since the last show there in November, which is when Fightful first heard rumblings of the rumor. There was also discussion of possibly taping an episode of WWE TV there in the future, though that's hardly confirmed.
Elimination Chamber has been a bit of a tradition during that time of year, with over a dozen Chamber matches taking place in February.
