As a savvy pro wrestling insider, I have to break the news that WWE is getting ready to thrill its fans once again with its highly-anticipated ‘Crown Jewel’ show in Saudi Arabia. This overseas event has become a landmark in the wrestling calendar, with both talent and staff pushing their limits to deliver yet another unforgettable spectacle. However, it seems they might have to navigate an unexpected hurdle this time around – the ever-fickle weather gods.
In a recent revelation from the usually reliable BWE, it was shared via their private X account that WWE has genuine concerns about impending weather conditions as the Crown Jewel show draws near. The Mohammed Abdu Arena in Riyadh, admired by many and known for its unique charm, could indeed turn out to be soggy grounds for wrestling fans.
Fans are no doubt eagerly anticipating this afternoon premium live event, especially with the scale of production that WWE events are regarded for. Still, instead of enjoying the press conference, fans might find themselves caught in a rainstorm, which was certainly not part of the planned experience.
WWE is known for conducting their grand wrestling events in outdoor stadiums usually covered with a canopy for several reasons such as hanging production equipment like lights and protecting the ring in case it decides to rain. However, even their best-laid plans might find themselves capitulating to the looming threat of heavy rains coming in this weekend.
If the weather indeed turns out to be unfavorable, the repercussions could extend beyond just a dampened show – it might also mean the superstars are stuck in Saudi Arabia, unable to leave due to weather conditions post the event.
The situation certainly prompts questions about WWE’s regular trips to Saudi Arabia, with weather threats like this potentially dampening the spirits of the entire spectacle. This unforeseen challenge is surely a curveball to both the WWE organizers and fans alike and we can only hope that the rains will not prove to be a spoilsport on the day.
