WWE has officially confirmed next month's return to Saudi Arabia.
This year's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view will take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, February 19. The show will be held at the Jeddah Super Dome, which is "the world's largest pillarless superdome."
"The General Entertainment Authority, in cooperation with WWE, has announced that the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event will be held at the world’s largest pillarless superdome in Jeddah, on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022. More details of the event will be announced in the coming weeks," WWE wrote.
"The Elimination Chamber show complements the commitment of the General Entertainment Authority to provide the most famous international events and entertainment shows. This show was preceded by several previous partnerships with WWE to present international shows in the kingdom, which achieved remarkable local and international success, including the recent WWE Crown Jewel show in Riyadh Season 2021 and WWE Super ShowDown in the previous Riyadh Season in early 2020."
Elimination Chamber will be WWE's only PPV between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 38. There will be no WWE PPV in March.
The show taking place on a Saturday is a departure from recent Saudi events, which have been held on Thursdays.
This will be the seventh WWE event to be held in Saudi Arabia since the company's 10-year deal with the Saudi government began in 2018. It's the second time WWE has been back to Saudi Arabia since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
