The show is being held in the city of Jeddah it was noted in Fightful Select that on a flight to Saudi Arabia is RAW commentator Renee Young who was on the call for Crown Jewel in November, and former SmackDown Live Women's Champions Natalya and Alexa Bliss.
A particularly interesting note for this week -- Renee Young, Alexa Bliss and Natalya were all said to be on the flight to Saudi Arabia this morning. We're told WWE chartered a flight out of San Antonio and it was a major upgrade from the cramped conditions last go around

Fans of the product have been calling upon WWE to push to have a women's match on a Saudi Arabia show. Alexa Bliss said during an interview recently that she would love to wrestle in Saudi Arabia and back in March, Fightful reported that there was an internal push to get women on the forthcoming shows.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet has provided additional details regarding Bliss and Natalya traveling to Saudi Arabia. The report notes that there's hope that they'll be allowed to wrestle on the show. WWE has not been given the green light for that match but they are hoping that permission will be given before this Friday.
