WWE has revealed details about its upcoming Saudi Arabia show, including the name and three of its matches.
Since WWE has signed a decade-long deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority, we knew that the next show was imminent. WWE previously revealed that the next Saudi Arabian show would be taking place on June 7, and that it would feature returning legends Goldberg, The Undertaker, and Brock Lesnar. Turns out two of those stars will be facing off.
In a press release rolled out earlier today, WWE has revealed more details about the June 7 show. As well as the revelation that it will be called Super Showdown, the biggest take home is that Goldberg will take on The Undertaker. This will be the first time the two icons have ever gone one on one. Lesnar's duties for the evening have not yet been revealed.
Another match announced for Super Showdown is not a first-time bout, but it is a match we have not seen for more than nine years. Triple H versus Randy Orton. The pair has a long and storied history dating back to The Viper's time in Evolution. If The Game can pick off Orton in Saudi Arabia, that just leaves Ric Flair for him to beat in order to complete a 2019 Evolution clean sweep.
The only other match currently announced for the show is a 50-man battle royal. We imagine that Superstars will begin to declare themselves as participants in the match, possibly as soon as tonight on Raw. It will be the largest battle royal in WWE history, but most notably, will not be a 50-man Royal Rumble match like it was this time last year.
A handful of other Superstars have also been announced, including both of WWE's current World Champions. They will presumably both be defending their titles at Super Showdown. Sadly, as of right now, it would appear that women are still not allowed to compete in Saudi Arabia. Here's hoping Lesnar doesn't get a title shot as the fear of him becoming champion again on top of women still being banned from Saudi shows would be too much for us to bear.
