Get ready for a Super Showdown—WWE’s next trip to Saudi Arabia has been confirmed.

During tonight’s Royal Rumble broadcast, WWE confirmed Super ShowDown would be the next event to take place in Saudi Arabia as part of their current agreement. The event is set for Thursday, February 27 in Riyadh and it will air at noon Eastern time.

This is the second Super Showdown event to take place in Saudi Arabia (the first was June 7, 2018) and the fifth overall event as part of WWE’s ten-year deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority. WWE also hosted Super Show-Down in Australia in 2018.

This is WWE’s first trip back to Saudi Arabia since Crown Jewel took place on October 31, 2018, which was newsworthy due to the issue that saw talent being delayed getting back to the United States. Travel issues from that trip forced WWE to make last-minute changes to that week’s SmackDown, which saw an NXT invasion take place.
