WWE attempting to have a women's match in Saudi Arabia

WWE Super ShowDown takes place this coming Friday night from the King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. But it's not exactly a public relations goldmine. Some for reasons beyond their control (like tattoos). Given what took place a year ago, fans are still not in support of the company returning to the country for what is referenced as a "WrestleMania-level pay-per-view".

WWE is looking to change that.

PWInsider reports that Natalya is headed to Saudi Arabia for the upcoming WWE Super ShowDown 2019 event, which would make her the first female WWE Superstar to travel to the country.

The match would feature Alexa Bliss vs. Natalya.

On June 7, 2014, a Walmart truck driver rear-ended Tracy's limo bus which killed his friend and mentor, James McNair. The 61-year-old woman spoke to Page Six , and admitted, "He was yelling at me, I got scared ", after the accident.

It has not been confirmed if Nattie and Alexa will be wrestling on the show - although it would seem unusual that WWE has not promoted the match if it was happening, due to the 'progressive' nature of their relationship with Saudi Arabia.

Super Showdown is headlined by a first time match between The Undertaker and Goldberg.

Triple H will also lace up the boots again to take on his former protege Randy Orton, and Brock Lesnar will keep up his ideal record of appearing at all the Saudi shows, although he's now not scheduled for a match.
