Goldberg vs The Undertaker to take place in Saudi Arabia
Goldberg made an appearance on Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live in Laredo, TX at the Sames Auto Arena. Goldberg cut a promo in the ring about his next match under the WWE banner inside of the squared circle. This led to the lights going out and back on with the Undertaker appearing in the ring that led to them having a stare down.
The former Universal Champion will take on The Undertaker for the first-time ever in one of the top matches advertised for the Super ShowDown event, which marks the third show in WWE’s 10-year deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority.

After twelve years away from the company, he returned to WWE in 2016 and headlined Survivor Series against Brock Lesnar, and Fastlane against Kevin Owens where he won the WWE Universal Championship. He lost the title to Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 in Orlando, Florida.
Goldberg was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year during WrestleMania 34 weekend and was last seen on WWE television the night after Mania on RAW.
The WWE Super ShowDown pay-per-view event takes place on Friday, June 7th, 2019 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium.
At WWE Super ShowDown, The Deadman will rise to step in the path of the uncontrollable force that is Goldberg for the first time ever.
The last time the WWE Universe saw The Undertaker compete was alongside his brother Kane when The Brothers of Destruction took on D-Generation X’s Triple H & Shawn Michaels at WWE Crown Jewel in November 2018. He then appeared on Monday Night Raw the night after WrestleMania 35 to attack Elias.
Now, The Demon Death Valley will step out of the darkness to face the unknown against WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg, who is returning for the first time since battling Brock Lesnar in a Universal Title Match at WrestleMania 33. The collision between the two legendary combatants promises to be one of the top matches of the year.
