WWE Co-President Michelle Wilson On Working With Saudi Arabia

WWE Co-President Michelle Wilson has said the company is pleased with the Greatest Royal Rumble, and hopes their example may lead to a cultural change in Saudi Arabia in the coming years. 

Speaking about working with Saudi Arabia, despite the recent women's evolution, Wilson said that the company will continue to commit to campaigning for women's rights. 

She said: "I think everyone is familiar with the fact that we have obviously been very vocal about our female performers and re-branding them as Superstars."

"There are many countries around the world where we perform and we're respectful to the cultures there but we certainly hope to be a part of the change moving forward."

The WWE announced the Greatest Royal Rumble on March 5, but faced controversy due to Saudi Arabia's restrictive laws against women. 

Wilson said how the WWE have already made strides in leading a cultural change in the country, giving the Sasha Banks Vs Alexa Bliss match from a live event last year as an example.

"We will continue to treat those cultures respectfully while hoping to be a part of some of the change that will be taking place," she said.
