WWE news: Women's Championship to be defended in Saudi Arabia for the first time ever

Bayley will compete in Saudi Arabia for the first time

WWE will return to Saudi Arabia in less than two weeks time for the second Super ShowDown event in less than nine months.

The company have never gone to Saudi on the Road to WrestleMania, but that all changes this year, and there's been much ridicule over the fact that WWE will then have just nine days to prepare for their next special event - Elimination Chamber.

Unlike past Saudi cards, only one legend is currently slated to wrestle this year, that being Goldberg, who challenges Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship.

And last week it seemed like an all-women's match was to be added to the match list, after an email was sent out advertising a number-one contenders match on SmackDown for Bayley's Women's Championship - with the winner facing her at Super ShowDown.

The latter part though was pulled from advertising, and the winner of the bout - Carmella - got her shot on the blue brand show last night.

However plans have seemingly changed once again as yet another contenders match was made for the same title.

A rematch between Bayley and Carmella may happen in Saudi Arabia

Carmella may have been unsuccessful in her challenge for the belt last night, but she's getting another opportunity against Naomi next week in Phoenix, after both women took their frustrations out on the champ.

And for the first time ever, a WWE Women's Championship will be defended in Saudi Arabia, just months after women were able to wrestle in the country for the first time.

That match saw Natalya face Lacey Evans, but fans throwing bottles at Nattie during her entrance was given just as much attention than the history-making feat.

The Saudi Sports Authority were clearly happy with the response to the match though, as they've cleared the way for two more women to get their chance to wrestle in the Middle East.

With the WrestleMania picture for SmackDown's females looking very unclear right now, Super ShowDown may give us an insight as to what WWE has in mind for when they roll into Tampa on April 5.
