Saudi Arabia APOLOGISES for showing 'indecent' female WWE wrestlers

While WWE did what it could to ensure that its entire male roster took part in the event, Zayn was conspicuously absent, as he didn't have a match in the undercard, nor did he take part in the titular 50-man main event. The event, that featured the largest Royal Rumble match in WWE history, ended with Braun Strowman holding the giant trophy and a championship belt above his head as he outlasted 49 other men to emerge as the victor of the huge 50-man match. Triple H clarified in an interview that they were in talks for having women superstars perform in their future shows.

The event came at a cost that has some people doing head scratching and questioning World Wrestling Entertainment's commitment to the women's evolution as well as being LGBT friendly. And while he didn't win the match, he spent one hour and 15 minutes inside the ring, which is a new record for most time spent in a Rumble match.

That rule was apparently also in place for any promotional material that WWE ran during the event as the Saudi Arabia General Sports Authority tweeted out an apology about WWE showing women wrestlers during the broadcast. Fans remember the hype surrounding German wide receiver Moritz Böhringer, but it was another popular foreign prospect who has taken a route to the WWE following their National Football League stints. It understandable for the company to be sensitive to the culture. WWE's decision to partner with the Saudi regime is looking increasingly embarrassing, a venal cash-grab which makes a mockery of any of the company's alleged pledges to social causes, and in particular, their much vaunted "women's evolution". Perhaps a women's only pay per view giving them a showcase.

The venue was about 90% full by eyeballing it but everyone in attendance couldn't wait to see what the WWE Superstars had in store for them.

However, it was noticeably missing during his performance. Hussein said he never expected WWE to come to Saudi Arabia, but they're here. This is once again, something WWE knew before accepting the 10-year deal. It appears the payday offered made WWE forget the equality movement. The firm operates through Network, Television, Home Entertainment, Digital Media, Live Events, Licensing, Venue Merchandise, WWEShop, and WWE Studios divisions.95.95 is the P/E ratio.
