still real to me dammit
Only five percent of Saudi wrestling fans have ever seen AEW, and of those, 50 percent are thinking of a time they saw TNA once.

Recently released financial records from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and upstart competitor All-Elite Wrestling (AEDub) prove that WWE still has a firm grip on the key demographic of males, aged 18 to 99, who are obscenely wealthy Saudi royals and barons. 

“AEW has made basically no inroads into the lucrative and war-torn Middle East region,” reports longtime wrestling journalist Dan Mutzler. 

“WWE is definitely winning the Saudi Night Wars.” 

While much of AEW’s profits come from live events and merchandising in North America — and funding from an obscenely wealthy Pakistani-American tycoon — the company has not captivated the semi-attention of Saudi wresting fans the way WWE has. 

WWE is likely to gain an even greater foothold in the Middle Eastern marketplace with the introduction of a new weekly show, Saudi Night Heat.
