WWE Running In Saudi Arabia

WWE kicks off a three show loop in Saudi Arabia on Thursday. All three shows are from The Green Halls Stadium in Riyadh. Riyadh is the Capital of Saudi Arabia and is described as an “ultraconservative Muslim kingdom, home to Islam’s holiest sites.”

For this reason there are no Divas on the tour and according to the Ticketmaster listing, the shows are “for males only.” The shows are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and all carry a bell time of 8:15 PM.

If you attend any of the shows, please submit a live report.

    Disgusting why they want to go there. Any company that would do business in a place that denies women of their rights is questionable themselves. WWE must support their views

      Or, you know, they just want money.

      Have you been to Saudi before? I know many people from there; things aren’t what your nice little media outlets would paint them out to be.

        Abdullah Mohammed Al Dawood stated at a religious service urging his 97,000 “followers” to sexually molest women that work as cashiers in groceries stores in order to force women to stay at home to protect their chastity
        Also
        Quran IV/34 states “Allah created women for men’s enjoyment, punish those who rebel against your desires”
        Quran IV/15 states “if a women is lewd, confine her till death”
        Quran II/223 states “women are yours to do with what you please”
        I can continue

          Fun fact my friend. I’m a Muslim. This isn’t a forum to spew anti-religious propaganda but I’ll just say that all those verses are not only being misquoted, but quoted out of their actual context among other things.

          “Abdullah Mohammed Al Dawood stated at a religious service urging his 97,000 “followers” to sexually molest women that work as cashiers in groceries stores in order to force women to stay at home to protect their chastity”

          I don’t really care who said this. This statement, in actuality, goes against the basic tenets of Islamic law and I know of no Saudi personally who would actually condone this. They actually hold their women in high regard(there are some questionable things but their social conditions are blown out of proportion in the Western world)

          And I know which Chapter you’re referencing from the Qur’an. You’ve misquoted EVERY single verse. Good lord. You have a right to hate on a religion, as you so please but at least have some intellectual decency/honesty when doing it.

          Everything you’ve posted here is nothing more than skewed information; typical of those like you, who’ve read one or two propaganda-spewing blogposts and feel empowered to say something they know little about.
