10:52 AM PT -- TMZ Sports just spoke with Stephanie McMahon about the historic 1st women's match in Saudi Arabia -- and she's FIRED UP!!
"As a woman, as a mother, as just a person, I couldn't be more proud. I am ecstatic, I am thrilled, I am many different adjectives to describe how I feel right now."
Steph says WWE officials have been working on getting a women's match in Saudi Arabia for "a long time" ... and dealt with several powerful Saudi officials behind the scenes to make it happen.
As for ring attire, Stephanie says the women will NOT wear the usual flesh-baring outfits they rock in the U.S. Instead, they'll wear full-body suits similar to what the women wore in the match in Abu Dhabi.
Steph noted the outfit adjustments were made out of respect for the Saudi culture -- "We need to be respectful of the cultures in the countries we perform in."
