WWE Night of Champions 2023 is coming to Saudi Arabia this weekend with a typically stacked card.
The wrestling giant is taking over Jeddah for the premium live event, which was initially set to be the King and Queen of the Ring tournaments before plans changed and the show had a rebrand.
Just like football, the F1 and more, WWE has its own ties to Saudi Arabia, with this weekend’s show marking the latest in the company’s longrunning partnership.
For this show, the company has gone all-out with five championship bouts, some grudge matches and more, with potential disarray in The Bloodline and a guaranteed new World Heavyweight Champion.
There’s so much on the line on a stacked weekend for wrestling fans.
As always, we’ve put together our regular guide with all the matches, streaming details and more, and here’s everything you need to know about the show…
When is WWE Night of Champions 2023 and where is it?
WWE presents Night of Champions on Saturday (May 27) with all of the action on the main card kicking off at 6pm for fans in the UK at a much more sociable hour. The earlier start time is because it’s airing live from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
How can you watch WWE Night of Champions 2023?
Of course, there will be a Kickoff show available on the WWE Network, WWE.com, the WWE app, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch at 5pm.

WWE Night of Champions predictions: New World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns in action and more
There’s a lot at stake tonight, with the main event going to one of two matches realistically – with the most likely being the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Title bout.
Look to Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn to retain here, potentially with The Usos costing Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa to dissolve The Bloodline and set up a bitter family feud for the summer months.
Seth Rollins and AJ Styles could also main event, and it’s one of several showstealers with The Visionary a safe bet to become the new World Heavyweight Champion.
Rhea Ripley should beat Natalya to keep herself rolling while Asuka could end Bianca Belair’s lengthy run – but either way, WWE needs to sort out the mess of the Raw and SmackDown Titles being on the wrong show since the draft.
Brock Lesnar could get his win back over Cody Rhodes, and Trish Stratus should steal a win over Becky Lynch to keep their rivalry going.
On paper, GUNTHER v Mustafa Ali appears to be a foregone conclusion, but the Ring General could lose here to move onto bigger and better things, or his IC Title reign will continue. Either way, Ali’s stock could soar with a spirited performance.
