WWE has announced that their upcoming Saudi Arabia PPV event, dubbed “Super ShowDown,” will be headlined by a legend vs legend match, as Goldberg makes his return to the ring to take on The Undertaker. It will mark the first time ever that they’ve faced one another.
Goldberg, 52, has not competed in WWE since dropping the Universal title to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in 2017. The Undertaker, 54, has popped up here and there over the last couple of years, with his most recent appearance coming at the April 8 edition of Monday Night Raw immediately following Wrestlemania 35.
In addition to Goldberg vs Undertaker, the WWE has also announced Triple H vs Randy Orton 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 Super ShowDown.
Speaking of Lesnar, the Beast Incarnate last fought at Wrestlemania 35 on April 7, where he lost the Universal championship to Seth Rollins. Lesnar was reportedly mulling a return to UFC, but UFC President Dana White recently revealed that the former Heavyweight champion has decided to retire from fighting inside the octagon.
WWE Super ShowDown will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East on June 7.
