Saudi Arabian influence throughout the world is well documented. Their immense wealth and power have added credence to the saying “money makes the world go round” and it would seem WWE is also being lured in.
In a report by The Dirty Sheets, they reveal that the Saudi General Sports Authority, officials sponsors of WWE events in Saudi have reportedly made a whopping $20 million offer for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to appear as WWE Champion at an event in 2019.
There have been rumors that The Rock could be returning to WWE for a feud against his real-life cousin Roman Reigns, which would culminate in a match at WrestleMania 35 on April 7, 2019, in East Rutherford, New Jersey. An offer by WWE has been made to Johnson at around $4 million to appear at the biggest show of the year and also SummerSlam in 2019 which will be held in Toronto.
If Johnson accepts he will be approaching the $25 million mark for three matches, something which has never been achieved by a professional wrestler.
