Spoiler Free Wrestling News Update For June 7th, 2019
Alexa Bliss vs Natalya Not Approved By Saudi Government
The Wrestling Observer has been reporting that WWE was attempting to get approval to present a women’s match on Super ShowDown between Natalya and Alexa Bliss. They then began reporting on Friday that the match was not given approval and would not happen at Super ShowDown. What this means for a future women’s match on a Saudi Arabia show remains unclear.
“Those in Saudi Arabia noted to us that Natalya vs. Alexa Bliss, a match they hoped to be a late addition on today’s WWE Super ShowDown event, was not approved by the Saudi Arabian government.”
At one point, the government had indicated to WWE they could have their first women’s match on this show, but then wavered on it.
