The WWE Smackdown Superstar, Charlotte Flair! “Having watched the paper reviews from home, and feeling the energy and not even being there performing, I am looking forward to being in it and seeing just how amazing and crazy the fans are. Like in a good way how excited they are that we are here.” Her first time in Saudi, Flair expressed her excitement for being in here and finally coming up close with the dedicated fans of Saudi. “I think it’s just incredible that we’ve been able to come here so many times, and it just goes to show how global WWE is and how our fanbase just keeps growing and growing.” Without a doubt, the WWE fanbase has just gained a new fan: US!
“Being able to perform here as a woman means so much to me! Allowing us to – it’s just awesome all around.” – Charlotte Flair.
The Hall of Famer, Lita! When asked about the loyalty and love of the Saudi fans’, Lita responded saying, “To hear about it is one thing, but to experience it, it’s not like I didn’t believe it but you can feel the connection it’s just a mutual feeling, they’re so happy to have us come but we’re so happy to be able to perform live in front of fans that have been waiting for so long, the warm welcome and support of the people is really touching”
“Big deal for the women to have the elimination chamber match and the tag team match!” – Lita.
The Almighty, Bobby Lashley! Being his fourth time in Saudi, Lashley discussed why he loves coming to Saudi, saying “I love coming here for so many different reasons, the fans, everybody comes out, you guys fill the stadium!” he continued with, “We want to have the best matches that we can, best shows that we can, and when we come here the crowd is so alive and hyped. It just brings our energy levels up.”

The road to WrestleMania continued as the men took on the ring! The themed entrance of each wrestler hosted by the chant of the audience added a punch of thrill and excitement as we eagerly watched until the Elimination Chamber began!
