This will be WWE’s ninth trip to Saudi Arabia as part of a 10 year deal with the gulf state and it’s set to be a historic night with Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins all set to feature. It’s set to be a blockbuster night of action and the final WWE premium live event before the pro-wrestling giant heads to London for Money In The Bank, in July.
A number of WWE titles will be on the line including the Intercontinental Title, Undisputed Tag Team Titles and both the RAW and Smackdown Women’s Championships. The event will also see a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion crowned after Triple H unveiled the new belt on RAW to give both WWE brands a World Champion.
Speaking to the WWE universe when introducing the new championship, WWE CCO Triple H said: “On Saturday May 27 at Night of Champions, we will crown a new World Heavyweight Champion. This will be a champion you can be proud of, this will be a champion you can respect and admire. This will be a champion that will defend this championship anywhere, any place, any time, all over the world.”
