WWE Female Wrestlers On Route To Saudi Arabia

Natalya and Alexa Bliss are on their way to Saudi Arabia. While they will not participate in a match, they are heading there. If this is the first step towards women competing in Saudi Arabia that has to be considered a positive step.

Renee Young has previously traveled to Saudi Arabia and performed as a commentator and is reported to be en route to Jeddah again for this show as well.

Here is what Triple H said to the BBC about women one day performing on a show in Saudi Arabia.

“While, right now, women are not competing in the event, we have had discussions about that and we believe and hope that, in the next few years they will be,” Triple H said to BBC in 2018.

Dustin Rhodes On Talk Is Jericho

Dustin Rhodes was Chris Jericho’s guest on the latest episode of Talk Is Jericho.

“We really fought hard to get this thing finally done and we were just always told ‘it’s not good enough to be on the big show’ and to me that was bulls**t, they were wrong,” he continued. “I focussed so hard on this that I probably over-focussed because I was so nervous. I’d been out of the ring for 8 months but as soon as the chants started, we could do no wrong.”
