During Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble event, WWE aired its “Best of Both Worlds” ad which features the women and men of WWE singing a song to promote the move to dual branded WWE PPV events.
The video prompted the Saudi Arabian General Sport Authority to issue an apology for the ad, which featured women wrestlers, who were not permitted to perform at Greatest Royal Rumble.
Reddit user Compromise has translated the apology issued by the GSA, and you can read it, along with the actual statement issued by the GSA via Twitter, below:
The General Sport Authority would like to apologize to the viewers and attendees of last night’s WWE event that took place in Jeddah, over the indecent scene involving women that appeared as an ad before a segment. It would like to confirm it’s total disapproval of this, in the shadow of its commitment to eliminate anything that goes against the communities values.
The authority has made sure to ban showing of any segment that involves women wrestling or any scenes related to it, and stipulated that to the company (WWE). The authority also disapproved any promotional stuff with pictures or videos showing women in an indecent way, and emphasized on commitment of this rule. And it’s a commitment that the authority would still commit to forever in all of it’s events and programs.
