Even though the WWE visited Saudi Arabia back in April 2018, the professional wrestling company is heading to the country for a second time for another big show on November 2nd, 2018.

Much like the first event, WWE is hoping to stack the card with several huge names.

As reported by (via NoDQ), Dave Meltzer explains that Brock Lesnar is expected to appear on the show and will get a payday in the seven figure range.

This is because WWE gets around $45 million for doing the shows in Saudu Arabia so it can afford to pay the top guys mega dollars. You can see Meltzer's comments posted below.

"With that kind of revenue at stake, meaning these shows generate more actual dollars for the company than even its WrestleMania shows, they load up on outside talent and give them large paydays. In Lesnar’s case, it is believed to be well into the seven figures for the matches in Saudi Arabia."

It is also rumored that Shawn Michaels could be persuaded to wrestle one more match at the Saudi Arabia event this November. This will be interesting mainly because he officially retired from in-ring competition back in 2010.

That being said, Shawn Michaels might be convinced to wrestle one more match if the payday is high enough.

There were rumors a few years ago that WWE was interested in bringing Shawn Michaels back to wrestle a match with AJ Styles at the 2017 Royal Rumble.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see if Shawn Michaels comes back for one more match.

As for Brock Lesnar, it's expected he will be facing Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match at the November 2nd Saudi Arabia show.
