    Women Are Forbidden To Compete At WWE PPV In Saudi Arabia

    The upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia is problematic for a number of reasons. For starters, women aren't allowed to compete on the card but the fact it's essentially a propaganda show for the government is most concerning. They're the ones deciding who gets tickets and those who have a family with a woman in it are being prioritised to make it look like women's rights are important to the country. Single men, however, are only allowed to have bad seats out of camera shot.

    As a result, it's thought that the response to the show won't be great because most of the people there won't actually be wrestling fans and the best seats are saved for the Saudi General Sports Authority.

    The belief is that the show isn't being promoted that much in Saudi Arabia because the government is more concerned with coming off a certain way to the rest of the world. The building is essentially a sell-out but only because officials have bought all the tickets and there's a very good chance the building won't actually be full. It's a bizarre situation, especially as those attending can't CHOOSE seats.

    Women are treated very differently in Saudi Arabia than they are in the United States and most Western countries, so that's likely why there are no females on the card. In fact, according to Deadspin writer David Bixenspan, he has been told by WWE that there are no plans to have any female wrestlers on the card at all, however, "women and children are allowed to attend."

    The Greatest Royal Rumble will undoubtedly be a history-making one and presumably the first of many WWE shows in Saudi Arabia as the company signed a 10-year deal to keep returning there over the course of the next decade. Unfortunately though, the lack of women on the card is also going to make it a controversial one and hopefully long before the end of WWE's 10-year deal that will have changed.

    Women can't even show their faces, drive or go to school in these Muslim run Countries.. Women have no rights... They get stoned to death if they show some leg. What do you expect?

    Where is the Iron Sheik by the way ..

    Wish the wwf could go back to pre feminist movement. I saw rousey beating on HHH the other day in a Facebook video and could only wish it was the 90s so he could've put a sledgehammer upside her head

    We wouldn't even be able to have a storyline like Macho Man, Miss Elizabeth and George The Animal Steele anymore. It'd be wiped so clean that it wouldn't even be worth watching. I am looking forward to Stephanie hammering Ronda somehow as payback for RAW though.

    WWE (WWF) died around 2005-2007... have not watched a single episode since then

    Best years (the ones I got to watch) 1994-2001... 97-99 was the shit with DX, Stone Cold, Taker, Mankind, Shamrock, Rock, etc

    I think I stopped watching around 1990 so I got to watch all of the original greats in their heyday. The soap operas were crazy when you think about them now but it was so bloody entertaining especially as a kid. I started to watch Total Divas and then Total Bellas because of my child but I rarely will ever watch the regular broadcasts these days.

    What's the problem? They're just putting the women's revolution on hold for a few days.

    Im sure their logic/justification is that if they get in now, then they can build towards one day having the women perform there as well.

    Damn, Muslim countries sound pretty shitty right? Their religion must suck big time, not like the awesome Christianity!

    ďA woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.Ē (1 Timothy 2:11-14)

    ^^^ Yes Koran preaches violence towards woman.. Christians don't do that, aren't called to do that... Please try again.. Adam and Eve were cool together, didn't cover up either ..

    They have beautiful women too. It's a shame. A ridiculous, ancient religion based on ancient beliefs and values. Only still around for control. Needs to be wiped from the modern world.
