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.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
