Lacey Evans and Natalya will battle in first-ever women’s match in Saudi Arabia at WWE Crown Jewel 2019

WWE held the media conference at Riyadh earlier today and the first announcement made in the conference was the first-ever women’s match in Saudi Arabia between Lacey Evans and Natalya.

In the past three events in Saudi Arabia, WWE was not allowed to book a women’s match at their shows. Last time at Super ShowDown 2019, WWE even brought Alexa Bliss and Natalya with the group. And if they had got the permission, the match would have taken place at Super Showdown between them. However, WWE was denied permission once again.

However, it looks like WWE has finally got permission to hold women’s matches in the country. And it looks like late permission indeed. But Lacey Evans and Natalya will be making history by featuring in the first-ever women’s professional wrestling match in Saudi Arabia.

Michael Cole hosted the press conference at King Fahd Stadium which included the below segments. You can check the complete video below.
