Vince McMahon had final say when it came to the WWE product. Now, that he sold his business, things have changed. In fact, he called Saudi Arabia the home of WWE.
Vince McMahon Calls Saudi Arabia The Home Of WWE
Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou fought in a boxing match Saturday from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Fury was a massive record, considering his record and Ngannou was far from a betting favorite has the former UFC Heavyweight Champion made his boxing debut.
It was a competitive bout, which saw the challenger drop the champion. In the end, the fight went the distance with Fury earning a majority decision as two judges gave him the contest with the third judge seeing it a draw.
Both spoke to MMA Junkie, where they spoke before the massive fight began.
WWE’s The Undertaker mostly went over being happy seeing how the country has evolved and their passion for pro wrestling.
The reporter went over the arena to Vince and wants to know if WWE will hold events there in the future.
“This is a pretty special venue,” said Vince McMahon. “Obviously, just coming together.”
“Well, this is our home now,” said Vince McMahon. It’s been pronounced. This is our home. WWE’s home.”
Currently, WWE is in the middle of a 10 year deal with Saudi Arabia. WWE is supposed to produce 2 shows per year from the country, although they are a little behind because of no traveling during the pandemic.
This Saturday, November 4, WWE will air Crown Jewel. It comes from Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh. It will be the first pay per view in Saudi Arabia since WWE and UFC merged under the same parent company, Endeavor.
So, is anyone buying all the praise Vince McMahon is sending the way of Saudi Arabia or does it all involve the large sum of money the Middle Eastern country brings to WWE?
