Male only audiences for WWE events in Saudi Arabia

The very successful tour of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, came to a close on
Saturday with one final show at the Green Halls Stadium, the same location
which held all three back-to-back shows. This was the first time that WWE
ran shows in Saudi Arabia and the shows were exclusively for men only,
with females banned from attending due to the very conservative Muslim
laws. The shows were originally going to take place in February but they
conflicted with the national Al Janadriyah Heritage and Cultural Festival
annual ceremony which was also going to take place at the same location
and WWE decided to reschedule to their tour. Perhaps the most interesting
news of the tour is that while The Shield battled as a group in the first
two nights against the Wyatt Family, on the last night of the tour
yesterday, Roman Reigns wrestled Randy Orton in a one on one match and won
with his Superman punch.
