WWE’s events in Saudi Arabia have been criticized for the fact that women aren’t allowed to wrestle on the cards … but Natalya says she’d love to be one of the people who helps change that.
While speaking with ESPN 1530’s No Holds Barred, Natalya said: “I would really love a chance, one day, to go to Saudi Arabia. I think that would be such an incredible thing for women to make some history over there.”
“For women to be able to one day perform in Saudi Arabia, I know it’s not something that were doing at this moment, but one day I want to be one of the women to do that,” she continued. “For me, I just think it would be so historical for women to make those positive steps over there. I think it’d be a huge step for WWE and a huge step for that country. It’s something I want to be a part of.”
As you may recall, Renee Young was featured on commentary at the last WWE event in Saudi Arabia.
According to WWE, the next show in conjunction with the Saudi General Sports Authority will take place on June 7 at 8pm AST in Jeddah and Goldberg is advertised for the event.
