WWE announced today that Undertaker will face Goldberg for the first time ever on June 7 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium. (The graphic doesn’t mention Saudi Arabia and they appeared to use the smallest font size possible to include the stadium name.)

Also, Triple H will face Randy Orton, plus there will be a 50-man battle royal which means pretty much the entire roster of male wrestlers willing or able to work in Saudi Arabia will be present.

There are no women advertised for the event. Women wrestlers aren’t allowed to perform in Saudi Arabia.

The name of the show is the same as last year’s Australia stadium event, which doesn’t carry the negative connotations of Greatest Royal Rumble or Crown Jewel, which was booed last fall in WWE arenas when the name was mentioned or the graphic was shown.

This is another “dream match” with legacy stars that is happening outside of the United States on an “above rate paid show” (meaning WWE is getting paid more than any ticket revenue or broadcast fees cover) rather than a legacy title such as WrestleMania or Summerslam.

  1. “a 50-man battle royal which means pretty much the entire roster of male wrestlers willing or able to work in Saudi Arabia will be present.”*

  2. It’s not accurate to say female wrestlers are not allowed to compete. Saudi Arabia does allow female athletes to compete, it just has to be seperate from male athletes. That means WWE could do an all-womens show there if they wanted.
