RIYADH: Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair is set for a return to Riyadh on Nov. 5 for the WWE’s Crown Jewel event, a trip which has excited her for competitive and cultural reasons.
“I’m very psyched to be back in and now this will be my third time going back to Saudi Arabia. So it’s a show that we all now look forward to because we know that it’s going to hopefully continue to keep happening.
“It’s one of the bigger premium live events. So I’m excited to come back and I want to just come back and experience more culture too.” She also wants to experience the country’s “amazing” food.
Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia is one of two international dates announced by the WWE. The other event will be held on Sep. 3 in Cardiff, Wales, titled Clash at the Castle.
Belair said she felt honored to be part of the WWE’s global shows, and praised the company for having faith in their women stars. “We have such an extensive roster, so much talent on the roster as far as the women (are concerned),” she said. She said the WWE’s Elimination Chamber held this past February in Jeddah, featured the most women ever on a show. “So that speaks volumes of how extensive and deep our roster goes.
