WWE is set to return to Saudi Arabia next month with the show taking place on a Saturday.

Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast was the first to report WWE is set to stage its next event in the country on Saturday, February 19th, which differs from past events that have taken place on Thursdays.

The date was confirmed to POST Wrestling.

Due to the pandemic, WWE only held one of its two cards in Saudi Arabia in 2020 and returned this past October with Crown Jewel.

The February show will be the only major event between the Royal Rumble on January 29th and the two-night WrestleMania on April 9 & 10.

In 2018, WWE entered a ten-year agreement with the General Sports Authority to stage events in the country. The following year, they added to the deal with the intention of staging two events per year, which have run on the WWE Network since April 2018.
