WWE signed a 10-year deal with The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ahead of their initial show back in April last year. The Greatest Royal Rumble was considered a huge success, but ahead of the show, it was reported that the country was asking WWE to bring over a number of wrestlers who had passed away.

Yokozuna and Ultimate Warrior were reportedly on the original list, while other stars such as Goldberg, Shawn Michaels, Kane, The Undertaker, and Hulk Hogan have already been interesting returnees in the Middle East.

WWE has signed up for two shows a year for the next eight and a half years, which means that they will be forced to pull something out of the bag once again this November when they head back over to the controversial country.

Ahead of the show, which is expected to take place in early November, a Tweet by Brad Shepard reports that Saudi Arabia has once again requested a number of superstars to be in attendance including Eddie Guerrero, Big Boss Man, Randy Savage, and even Miss Elizabeth.

Of course, it would be impossible for WWE to bring any of these stars over to be part of the show in the fall for obvious reasons.

WWE obviously can’t follow through with any of these requests, but there are a number of legends who would be happy to head over to The Middle East for a return match.

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently spoke about his desire to return to the ring in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia if the offer arose, but there are many stars like Daniel Bryan, Batista and John Cena who have already stated publicly that they don’t want to be associated with WWE’s on-going relationship with the country.
