WWE will hold its next Saudi Arabia event on Thursday, October 31 at the King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com. Recent WWE events in Saudi Arabia have been held on Fridays, but the Smackdown television series moving to Fox on Fridays forced the change.
Powell’s POV: I did a quick search for Halloween in Saudi Arabia. The first return is a story about how Saudi teens risk arrest and fines to celebrate Halloween, which is banned by the country’s leadership due to the holiday’s “roots in paganism and its association with evil spirits.” In other words, it’s probably safe to assume that WWE will not go with a Halloween theme for this event despite the fact that it will be held on October 31.
