WWE has officially confirmed its return to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
WWE has not been in Saudi Arabia since February 2020 when they presented WWE Super ShowDown. At that event, Goldberg would defeat Bray Wyatt to capture the WWE Universal Championship. A month later, the world would begin to shut down due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, as WWE has returned to a full-time touring schedule, they have officially confirmed that they will return to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in October 2021 to present WWE Crown Jewel. An ad for the event ran during this year's SummerSlam event.
