If Saudi Arabian fans chanted "allahu akbar" to the tune of "this is awesome" I would consider forgiving their head of state for his horrific crimes.

Why bother having a woman ref? Like why bother? I figure that would break some rule.

Also with the bulky sweats under the ref shirt it look she's some kind of stunt double that is gonna be set on fire.

Boy, I think it's about time I tell you the difference between a man and a woman. A woman isn't a woman unless she's pretty. And a man isn't a man unless he's ugly.

I say it's an attempt to bring attention to their new clothing of pajamas with referee shirts on them.

...or at least that's what they'll start producing now...

Something I'm noticing, it seems to me that the woman ref was told to stand as still as possible in the corner and not really be active in the match.

She barely moves, does not admonish the men like other refs would do when they go to the top and what not. Seems deliberate.

Signs of being a good ref.

Admonish them in a no DQ match?

Did they at least put genuine fans in front of the hard cam or can you still see a bunch of disinterested Saudi dudes just walk around not paying attention while the matches go on

No but there's a lot of "This is Awesome" chanting in unaccented English.

I do generally agree that refs are way too visible in matches nowadays, its one of my few issues with AEW, but I'm more pointing out this ref in particular seems to not be reffing the match like she normally does and it seems deliberate.

Little bit of both. Don't know how much crowd noise is piped in. I don't know if a giant "This is awesome" chant in english really happens.

That's admittedly hard to discern in crowd noise.

Also is Vince just keeping an extra copy of a WrestleMania set and HiTC cage in Riyadh?
