WWE confirms Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia for next month

WWE's next event in Saudi Arabia is now official.

A video that aired during tonight's Royal Rumble broadcast announced that this year's Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia will take place on Thursday, February 27. The show will air live on the WWE Network starting at noon Eastern time.

On commentary, Tom Phillips said the show will be held in Riyadh.

This will be the first time WWE has returned to Saudi Arabia since their post-Crown Jewel travel delays. Crown Jewel 2019 was held at Riyadh's King Fahd International Stadium on October 31.

Following Crown Jewel and those travel delays, WWE announced an "expanded" partnership with the Saudi General Entertainment Authority. It officially guarantees that WWE will hold two large-scale events in Saudi Arabia through 2027.

WWE's 10-year partnership with Saudi Arabia began with the Greatest Royal Rumble in April 2018. This year's Super ShowDown will be the fifth event in the deal.

Last year's Super ShowDown took place in Jeddah on June 7 and was headlined by The Undertaker vs. Goldberg.
