As of this writing, there are no women's matches expected or announced for the show but Pro Wrestling EVE has announced that for the second consecutive WWE Saudi Arabia show, they will host a live stream to showcase women's wrestling that may not be featured at Super ShowDown.

Following the Greatest Royal Rumble event, the Saudi GSA issued an apology after WWE's women were shown in an ad at the venue.
The General Sport Authority would like to apologize to the viewers and attendees of last night’s WWE event that took place in Jeddah, over the indecent scene involving women that appeared as an ad before a segment. It would like to confirm it’s total disapproval of this, in the shadow of its commitment to eliminate anything that goes against the communities values.
The authority has made sure to ban showing of any segment that involves women wrestling or any scenes related to it, and stipulated that to the company (WWE). The authority also disapproved any promotional stuff with pictures or videos showing women in an indecent way, and emphasized on commitment of this rule. And it’s a commitment that the authority would still commit to forever in all of it’s events and programs."
Recently added to the Super ShowDown match card was Lars Sullivan taking on the trio of Lucha House Party in a 3-on-1 Handicap match.
