Saudis at Jeddah's 'Super Showdown' were reduced to tears while witnessing their compatriot win WWE's largest-ever Battle Royal.
23-year-old pro wrestler Mansoor Al-Shehail outlasted 49 other men in the event to secure a thrilling win.

Mansoor was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, but lived most of his life in the USA.
He became WWE's first ever Saudi wrestler in 2018 after signing a contract with the WWE.
It was in the same year the company started holding pay-per-view matches in Saudi Arabia.
