WWE News: Open Letter From A Saudi Regarding Greatest Royal Rumble

Published

on

Triple H Saudi Arabia Greatest Royal Rumble

Since the Greatest Royal Rumble was announced for Saudi Arabia and it came to light women wouldn’t be wrestling. it has been mired in controversy. Fans have questioned WWE’s decision to hold an event in a country that wouldn’t allow women’s wrestling. Even going as far as to say it is “killing the women’s revolution”.

HHH even made comments on this situation as we reported earlier this week. It appears however that the view from people in Saudi Arabia maybe different from ours. While some fans believe that this is a bad look for WWE, fans in Saudi Arabia believe this is helping for a culture change. Our own Greg Demarco posted this open letter on Twitter with a quote.

This is an open letter from a person whom lives in Saudi Arabia. Some quotes from the open letter; “The country is changing. The culture is changing A LOT in the last two years, and it’s all because of our young Prince that what’s to give the wheel to a younger generation to shale our society the way they want, which I had no concerts, no movie theaters, no comic con, no entertainment events of any kind, and No wrestling shows that are advertised publically because of our countries reputation. But now, WE HAVE ALL OF THOSE! And many of those even don’t segregate men and women. I personally didn’t even think for a second this day will come while I’m alive.”

The open letter would go on to say:

Women will wrestle in Saudi Arabia one day but we have to be patient. Saudi Arabia is changing but it takes time. If WWE decided to not hold this show in Saudi Arabia, it won’t help. Atleast holding it (with the flaws present) gives us hope, and takes us in the right direction”.

This certainly makes me think about this on another level. I can’t begin to actually understand how this person feels while typing this. Hopefully it opens some eyes and allows another perspective, one who actually lives in the culture everyday.

ROH News: Main Event Announced For Honor United

Published

on

With Ring Of Honor’s Honor United event now just four days away on May 24th from Edinburgh, Scotland, the card for the show is getting more clear. Today, ROH has now announced the main event:

The Main Event is set for Ring of Honor’s return to Edinburgh and the ROH World Tag Team Championship will be on the line! “The American Nightmare” Cody turns to his closest Bullet Club confidant Adam Page and the two will face The Briscoes in Scotland at Honor United – Edinburgh, streaming LIVE for all HonorClub members!

MAIN EVENT

ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE BRISCOES (JAY & MARK) vs. “THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” CODY & ADAM PAGE

After surviving title defenses in the past week on the War of the Worlds Tour and ROH TV, Dem Boys head across pond to Edinbrugh to defend the Championships against Bullet Club’s Cody and Adam Page!

Cody has seemingly created a vortex of power within Bullet Club when he defeated Kenny Omega following Superkicks that connected on Omega that were seemingly directed at Cody. On the popular web series Being The Elite’s “Finale,” Cody’s self-centeredness has apparently left him alone and isolated, with his trusted confidant Adam Page even seemingly walking away confused.

Despite winning the ROH Champions vs. Bullet Club match for Bullet Club, Cody finds himself nearly a stranger in a group in which he declares himself to be the leader. But he and Page, two of the top current ROH singles wrestlers, team up to take on the Champions in Edinburgh!

The Briscoes became nine-time ROH World Tag Team Champions when they defeated The Motor City Machine Guns at 16th Anniversary. The Sandy Fork, DE natives call the Championships their property and have proven to be up to the task to remaining champions by any means necessary.

Cody and Jay Briscoe are two former ROH World Champions whose paths have crossed sparsely but Cody will be looking to perhaps get revenge for Jay Briscoe striking Burnard the Business Bear with a steel chair at Bound by Honor – ROH Champions vs. Bullet Club!

Who will leave Scotland as the ROH World Tag Team Champions! Join us when Honor United – Edinburgh broadcasts LIVE for HonorClub!

Ring of Honor returns to Edinburgh and London and debuts in Doncaster when the Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to the UK for the Honor United Tour!

Published

As it was noted earlier, the WWE Superstars of SmackDown Live were in Amsterdam, Netherlands tonight as the company’s European Tour rolls into its final few days. It was reported that Big Cass may have suffered a leg injury (which you can check out here), as he was badly limping through a tag team match where he paired with The Miz to take on Tye Dillinger and Daniel Bryan.

Since then, it has now come out from numerous fans who had attended previous events on the tour that Cass has been limping at every show. This is to sell the beat down given to him by Bryan this past Tuesday on SmackDown. Below are results from tonight’s show in Amsterdam:

  • SmackDown Tag Title Triple Threat: The Bludgeon Brothers retained over The New Day & The Usos
  • NXT Champion Aleister Black defeated SAnitY’s Alexander Wolfe
  • Charlotte Flair, Asuka & Naomi defeated Sonya Deville, Mandy Rose & Lana
