WWE-Saudi Arabia Deal
WWE and Saudi Arabia signed a 10-year agreement last year on good terms that soon turned out to be a win-win situation for both sides owing to the success of Greatest Royal Rumble and (highly controversial) Crown Jewel.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that it’s not WWE that is eyeing Saudi Arabia as a cash cow but it’s The Kingdom that is highly seeking WWE as a platform for portraying its greatness on the world stage.
“Okay so here’s the thing, the reason they’re getting paid so much is not because they want WWE in the country. The reason they’re getting paid so much is because they want WWE to broadcast how great Saudi Arabia is to the world.”
“They did do those [propaganda commercials for the GRR], but for the second show they didn’t do any of that which I think was probably a compromise because they couldn’t do it — if WWE did it then they would probably lose a lot of sponsors if they had actually put over Saudi Arabia.”
