October 21 is pencilled-in as the planned date, though it hasn’t been confirmed yet.
If true, the two women in the final will only be the third set of women to have fought a match in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Natalya and Lacey Evans were the first to do so at Crown Jewel 2019 with Natalya defeating Lacey Evans. Due to local policies, they were both forced to wear t-shirts with full-body suits instead of their normal in-ring gear.
Bayley and Naomi were the second with Bayley succesfully defending her titles against the Glow back in 2020. That was the first time a women’s championship was defended in Saudi Arabia.
