WWE just announced Goldberg will face off The Undertaker for the first time ever at WWE Super ShowDown, taking place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on June 7. As you may have noticed above, Goldberg seems to be ready for the upcoming fight. WWE has also announced a 50-man Battle Royal and Triple H vs. Randy Orton for their return to the Kingdom.
To quote WWE, “The Saudi General Sports Authority will host WWE Super ShowDown at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, June 7, at 9 p.m. AST (7 PM BST), and feature the first-ever match between WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg and Undertaker. In addition, the event will include Triple H vs. Randy Orton, as they create another chapter of their storied rivalry, and a 50-Man Battle Royal — the largest in WWE history.
WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, AJ Styles and Brock Lesnar are also scheduled to compete at WWE Super ShowDown, which will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East. Additional details on the event’s matches and regional broadcast information will be announced in the coming weeks.”
WWE has been promoting events in the Middle Eastern country of Saudi Arabia since 2018 as part of a ten-year deal with the General Sports Authority, part of the latter’s Saudi Vision 2030. The inaugural event, Greatest Royal Rumble, took place on April 27, 2018, in Jeddah. It included the largest version of the Royal Rumble match to date, with a total of 50 participants.
Crown Jewel took place on November 2, 2018, in Riyadh. In the main event, D-Generation X (Triple H and Shawn Michaels) faced The Brothers of Destruction (The Undertaker and Kane) in Michaels’ first match since his retirement in 2010, as well as the first time that the two tag teams ever faced each other in a tag team match.
