— While WWE is pushing their Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia as one of the biggest shows of the year, it has not come without controversey and issues. The first – which has already been noted – is that WWE’s females, despite being part of an empowerment revolution that the company is pushing, are not able to compete in any way due to the country’s rules around women and sports.
— The second issue which is now coming to the forefront is complications in buying tickets. The country’s rules forbid women from attending the event unless they are accompanied by a man and any single men who are interested in going are able to purchase tickets, but are seated in a section far away from women and families. Reports suggest that these seats are far from ideal, likely in the upper deck, and there are only a limited amount of these seats.
— Furthermore, you are apparently not even able to select your exact seats as they will only be assigned shortly before the event begins.
If anyone has more details regarding some of the rules in Saudi Arabia around the guidelines around seating, feel free to drop us a line.
