WWE has confirmed its return to Saudi Arabia for Elimination Chamber on Saturday, February 19th.

The event will serve as WWE’s only “premium live event” between the Royal Rumble and two-night WrestleMania in April.

The card is scheduled to take place in Jeddah.

Last week, it was reported by Wrestlenomics and Fightful that the Elimination Chamber structure would be utilized for the event, which is the first time an Elimination Chamber has been staged in Saudi Arabia.

Dave Meltzer had reported that the company was debating several alterations to the name including the WrestleMania Chamber and The Annual Elimination Chamber but the news release from WWE identifies the show as Elimination Chamber.

This will be the second event in Saudi Arabia since the pandemic began in early 2020. The company entered into a ten-year agreement with the General Sports Authority of Saudi Arabia in 2018. One year later, they amended the deal to include two events per year.
