WWE stars heading to Saudi Arabia next week, including AJ Styles and Mysterio

AJ Styles and Rey Mysterio, among other WWE stars, are reportedly planning to travel to Saudi Arabia to represent the brand. The Gamers Season (also known as Gamers8) event, which is billed as the “largest event for electronic sports and games in the world of Riyadh,” will feature WWE celebrities. Next month is the date. They will advertise both the forthcoming Crown Jewel PPV and the most recent WWE game.

Gamers8 convention

The largest electronic sports and gaming convention in the world, Gamers8, is taking place in Riyadh for 8 weeks through September 8. The Saudi Esports Federation is the organisation behind the event, which focuses on professional esports and gaming, entertainment activities, live performances, and “The Next World Summit,” which will bring together industry leaders and specialists from all over the world. The “gamers season,” with the theme “Your Portal to the Next World,” will provide a unique experience for esports and video game enthusiasts through a number of competitive tournaments featuring the top international teams and players in the “elite competition.”

WWE2K23 promotions or the upcoming PPV?

As we know that WWE2K23 is nearby its release, we might hear some updates of the game during the convention. Mostly it will be revolving around the upcoming pay per view “The Crown Jewel”, where all the WWE stars are going to promote it. Later this year, on November 5, WWE will hold Crown Jewel in Riyadh, making their return to the country. The Kingdom is a significant financial issue for WWE because every event they hold there is worth $50 million, regardless of attendance or gate receipts. Due to a 10-year agreement reached between WWE and the Saudi General Sport Authority, the company visits Saudi Arabia twice a year.

These two big stars will be going next week to the convention as well, confirmed in the latest reports. As we know both of them have been featured in the past 2K game series. Aj styles being the cover art for WWE2K19 and Rey Mysterio being the cover art for the latest game, WWE2K22. The Phenomenal AJ Styles is an avid gamer himself, and did say that it was a pleasure being the part of the WWE in other multimedia platforms as well.

Rumours are of Cody Rhodes being the cover art for this year’s game WWE2K23.

Crown Jewel PPV

The event will feature wrestlers from the Raw and SmackDown brands on Saturday, November 5, 2022, in Riyadh at a location that will be revealed. The 2022 event, which will be announced on May 23, 2022, will be the fourth in the Crown Jewel timeline and the eighth overall for the Saudi Arabian alliance. They have a partnership for ten years, as it was previously stated. Roman Reigns’ victory against Brock Lesnar at the Crown Jewel of the previous year was the main event, and both competitors were dubious of Paul Heyman’s allegiances.
