The Undertaker and Goldberg's match clearly did not go the way the two Superstars envisioned at Super Showdown.
Super Showdown has been and gone and similarly to the rest of WWE's Saudi shows, it didn't exactly take our breath away. No titles changed hands and Brock Lesnar was paid an obscene amount of money to come to the ring and fail to cash in his Money In The Bank contract. The uneventful show meant we piled all our hopes on the main event.
Goldberg versus The Undertaker. A first time ever match between two of the most iconic wrestlers in the history of the business. In all honesty, a match that would have probably been far more appealing had it happened 15 years ago. Nevertheless, we're getting it now and we went into the match with an open mind.
Sadly, it did not live up to the hype. The match began with Goldberg delivering two spears to The Deadman and we thought it was going the way of his Survivor Series match with Lesnar. However, Taker rallied and the match continued. It really took a turn for the worst when Goldberg attempted to deliver a third spear and went head first into the ring post, inadvertently busting himself open.
Had that not happened, the match might not have been the disaster that it turned out to be. Shortly after, Goldberg attempted to deliver a Jackhammer to The Undertaker. However, he failed miserably and wound up dropping The Phenom on his head. That move led to a botched Tombstone, and then a chokeslam with very little height to finish that match.
The Undertaker won the match, but he did not look happy about it. The bout clearly didn't end how it was supposed to and for a man who has wrestled as long as The Deadman, it was not how he would have wanted his night to go. Chances are he was also still feeling the effects of being dropped on his head to boot. The saddest part of all is that this could well be the last time we see either of these men perform. It would be disappointing if that ends up being The Undertaker's last match.
