WWE has a 10-year long contract with Saudi Arabia, and the company held several major shows there over the past few years. In these events, we multiple legends and even WWE Hall of Famers compete to make them feel even more special.

WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg also competed at several of these events. This year also WWE returns to Saudi Arabia as WWE Crown Jewel set to take place on October 21st, 2021. Goldberg also set to battle Bobby Lashley in No Holds Barred Match at the pay-per-view.
On the recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that former Universal Champion Goldberg has a specific deal with WWE Saudi Arabia shows. The reported details of this contract could explain his extra incentive to compete at these events. Meltzer revealed that the WWE Hall of Famer gets significantly more money for Saudi matches than anyone else.
“The other match that is going to be there is Lashley and Bill Goldberg, because that one won’t be put on TV, because Goldberg does have a specific deal with the Saudi shows that is very lucrative,” said Meltzer. “And if you were gonna pull his match to put it on TV, he wouldn’t be happy at all. That’s millions of dollars of difference. It’s not like all the other guys who are going to get paid the same, whether they’re on the show or not.” (H/T: WrestleTalk)
