Vince McMahon Is Reportedly Still Trying To Secure a Women’s Match For WWE Crown Jewel



Next Thursday night, WWE will present Crown Jewel live from Saudi Arabia. This is the company’s fourth trip over to the Middle East and once again the card is not expected to feature any female wrestlers.

It is illegal for women to wrestle in the country which is why WWE has had such a hard time trying to convince Saudi Arabian authorities to let their female performers have a slot on their bi-annual show.

This hasn’t stopped Vince McMahon from trying to negotiate so that the women are also allowed to make the trip, with Alexa Bliss and Natalya even heading over to Saudi Arabia back in June for Super ShowDown in the hopes that their match would be given the green light at the last minute, but this didn’t happen.

So far, Renee Young is the only employee who has been allowed to work as part of the show in Saudi Arabia because she is a commentator. Despite this, Young is not expected to make the trip over next week since she no longer works on commentary.

Despite being told a number of times that the women cannot perform, it appears that Vince McMahon is still not ready to admit defeat. According to a report from Sportskeeda’s Tom Colohue, the WWE Chairman is still holding talks with Saudi Arabian authorities in the hopes that he can secure a women’s match for next week’s show.

McMahon is aware that a women’s match would be a huge step forward for both WWE and the country of Saudi Arabia, but he has tried a number of times already and always gained the same result.

The fact that there was no Women’s match or segment last night on Raw shows that WWE is focusing on other storylines heading into Crown Jewel and could have accepted that a women’s match isn’t feasible.
