As if that weren't enough, Hulk Hogan will serve as the host for the event, marking his first on-screen appearance for the company since 2015 when he was sacked and removed from the WWE Hall of Fame for making racially insensitive remarks.

"Considering the heinous crime committed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the Company faced a very hard decision as it relates to its event scheduled for November 2 in Riyadh", the WWE acknowledged in its statement.

Other matches on the card include Brock Lesnar vs Braun Strowman for the vacant Universal Title, AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship and The New Day vs The Bar for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship. Plus, there is the World Cup Tournament which sees eight wrestlers battle, with four from RAW and four from SmackDown.

That was after plunging 6 percent in the week since WWE confirmed it was staging the event despite the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents.

WWE's top star John Cena and wrestling legend Daniel Bryan have been removed from the show for unspecified reasons, but rumours suggest they refused to be part of it.
