So the awkwardly promoted "WrestleMania-equivalent" show in that country that we awkwardly can't talk about is this week, with ZERO promotion beyond Goldberg being announced, a decades-old video package of HHH and Randy Orton's feud, and Ziggler returning out of nowhere to jump Kingston for no logical reason.  That's literally been it. 

The rumor is that Goldberg will finally show up on Smackdown this week to generate the slightest interest in his match with Undertaker.  Why HHH and Orton have done nothing to further their feud despite being on TV every week is beyond me plebeian comprehension since I'm not the senile genius if Vince McMahon.

Obviously, these shows, like most things in WWE land these days, are a financial windfall but otherwise a total disaster.  I don't know what the solution is going forward.  Saudi Arabia is paying them a fortune but it's a political non-starter here in the U.S. and they have neither the time nor the inclination to build any of these matches.  They just stick the show on the calendar, overpay legends to come out of retirement to wrestle on it, and put on the worst shows they possibly can in front of terrorists wearing turbans who stare at their smartphones the entire show in plain view of the cameras. 

At the very least, WWE should eliminate their usual PPV the month of these shows since they can only build to one PPV a month, but they won't do that.

For the record, here's the lineup that has gone virtually unannounced so far:

*WWE Champion Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler.
*WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin.
*Goldberg vs. The Undertaker.
*Bobby Lashley vs. Braun Strowman.
*50 Man Battle Royal.
*Triple H vs. Randy Orton.
*WWE Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor vs. Andrade.
*Shane McMahon vs. Roman Reigns 
*Lars Sullivan vs. Lucha House Party - Handicap Match.

Lars Sullivan will be the most over wrestler there if said fans on their smartphones do any sort of research.

Is there a regular June PPV or did this replace it?

If they weren't contractually obligated to run the show on The Network, they'd probably just as soon not mention it in North America at all.

Honesty thinking this should be a RR discussion.

I'm beginning to think that someone in the Saudi money group is a wrestling fan and is pulling some booking strings. The only reason I can think for these shows to be treated as real PPVs with the weekly TV leading directly into them is that was what the Saudis are paying for.

All this bullshit with Brock saying he'll cash in on Raw, but he doesn't, but now he's going to cash in in Saudi, which was clearly the plan all along, since he's not on the card. So Vince has USA telling him what to do, and the Saudis telling him what to do and has to fill in all the rest with his senile ramblings.

I thought all along the Saudi’s were telling Vince what they want. Maybe not down to the fine details but match ups and type of matches. Which is why the “legends” reappear for these shows. Rinse and repeat for that other big super show they did last year.

Absolutely, but I think they also want Raw and SmackDown to lead I to the Saudi shows.

And I can understand that because the E wants clicks and views but I don’t understand the point in having a second “PPV” in the same month or if they have to have a second “PPV” why not make it an all women “PPV”? Try to provide something different.

It is difficult. 


I will try to obey your request.  Sorry for upsetting your wonderful day.

  
Carry on with your WWE talk.   Nonsense like cancer can kill.
