Two titles that will not be defended on the show are WWE's Women's Championships. The company has not advertised any of their female superstars for the event. Laws and tradition in Saudi Arabia that have to do with social gatherings or events, much like the 'Greatest Royal Rumble' do not allow for women to be around non-kin men and is extremely rare if it happens. Companies in Saudi Arabia would even have to go the extra mile of creating an all-female environment if they were to hire women.

Back in December, Sasha Banks & Alexa Bliss became the first two women to wrestle in the UAE.

 

Fans of the product showed their displeasure via social media about there not being women's matches being featured on the 'Greatest Royal Rumble' PPV.
