RK-Bro make their entrance at WWE Crown Jewel

Following the release of WWE’s 2022 pay-per-view schedule a new report has given an insight on when the company will be returning to Saudi Arabia.

On October 25th WWE released a list of nine pay-per-view events scheduled to take place in 2022.

The main headlines from the schedule centred around WrestleMania and SummerSlam. The list noted that WrestleMania 38 will take place inside AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas on April 2nd and April 3rd 2022. The confirmation of the dates means that the spectacular will take place over two nights for the third time in as many years.

Meanwhile, for the first time ever SummerSlam will not be taking place in August. Instead the summer spectacular will be held in Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday 30th of July.

The schedule also sees an event listed to take place on September 3rd or 4th with the location shown as “TBD.” It has been suggested that this could be the potential long-awaited pay-per-view event to be held in the UK.

Interestingly the announcement from WWE notes that “pay-per-views taking place in February and October will be announced in the near future.” It has since been reported by Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp that this is when the company will return to Saudi Arabia.

WWE held their first ever pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia in April 2018. The show billed as ‘The Greatest Royal Rumble,’ was headlined by a 50-man Royal Rumble Match which was won by Braun Strowman.

The company returned again in November, before running another two shows in the kingdom the following year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic only Super ShowDown took place in early 2020, with WWE returning to the Mohammed Abdu Arena on October 21st 2021 for Crown Jewel.

The event saw the finals of the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments, while Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship in the main event.
