Yesterday, WWE organized its King and Queen of the Ring premium live event in Jeddah, KSA.

The event had a hot, and enthusiastic interaction from the fans followed the same chanting and cheering mood they had for SmackDown like counting the count out numbers and the pins in Arabic. In addition, they recited some Arabic and traditional chants during the show. 

Several WWE Superstars received more than impressive reaction from the fans like Cody Rhodes, LA Knight, Becky Lynch, Bianca Blair, Jade Cargill, Samy Zein; especially when he appeared with the Arabic "thawb," and of course the legendary Randy Orton.

During the kick off, there was a match for the WWE Women's Tag Team titles between the champions Blair, and Cargill against Indie Hartwell, and Candice LeRae. As expected, the champions retained the titles. 

After that, the main show started with a good match between WWE Women's World Heavyweight Champion Lynch against Liv Morgan.

The match witnessed the interference of Dominik Mysterio which helped Morgan to capture the title.

After that, the triple threat match between Zayn, the WWE Intercontinental Champion, Chad Gable, who received huge "you s...k" chants, and the big Bronson Reed.

All pro wrestling fans were interested in this match due to the outstanding skills and performance of the three superstars. 

Samy retained which is somehow expected, but the biggest highlights of the match are between Gable and Otis when Otis mistakenly hit Gable.

It seems that the story of Gable chasing a single title, or maybe another story with Zein.

After that, Nia Jax defeated Lyra Valkyria in a short match. Jax could be among the names that deserves to be crowned with the title, and receiving another title shot, especially with her good second WWE run.

Next came the semi-final of the King of the Ring between Orton, and Gunther. This match opened a wide discussion and controversy between regarding the end of the match as Orton's shoulder didn't touch the mat of the ring. The style of the match was unique. It was good but still the ending of the match was an upset for a lot of fans.

The show closed with a very dynamic and impressive WWE Undisputed title match between Rhodes and US Champion Logan Paul. Paul showed not only a good in-ring performance, but another level in narrating the story of the match revolved around the brass knuckles.

Rhodes retained after executing three Cross Rhodes for Paul to successfully pin him. 

During the match, Saudi actor and comedian Ibrahim Al Hajaj prevented Paul to use his brass knuckles and helped Rhodes.

Rhodes showed huge respect to the fans, the commentators, Al Hajaj, and the referee. It is another sign of Rhodes maturity, respect, and professionalism. 

In a nutshell, the show in terms of story development, and final results is good, but the quality of some matches, and the way of the match ends upset some fans.

Moreover, a lot of people in the KSA were upset with the dates of the SmackDown, and King and Queen of the Ring show as this time of the year is an examination period for both school and university students.
