A dream match that WWE fans thought that they would never see is going to happen within a month.
Goldberg has signed a new contract with the company and will be making his return their next event in Saudi Arabia on Friday, June 7. The Super ShowDown will take place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah and will air live on the WWE Network.
On Monday, WWE confirmed a 50-Man Battle Royal, The Undertaker vs. Goldberg and Triple H vs. Randy Orton for this show. Goldberg reacted to the news when he wrote the following:
For over two decades, this has been a contest that many fans wanted to see but couldn’t due to the fact that Taker was in WWE and Goldberg in WCW. Even when Goldberg did a one-year stint in WWE from 2003-2004, the match never took place as Taker was on SmackDown and Goldberg on RAW.
Moving along to 2016 when Goldberg made his grand WWE return, the two never had a feud. Instead, Goldberg beat Brock Lesnar in short fashion at the Survivor Series PPV event. He would later wrestle Kevin Owens and then worked his most recent match at WrestleMania 33 in 2017.
They did share the ring and even got physical once. That came at the 2017 Royal Rumble PPV during the Royal Rumble Match. The two came face to face before brawling with other stars in the match. This would lead to Goldberg hitting a spear on Taker before Taker then eliminated him.
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. Additional details on the event’s matches and regional broadcast information will be announced in the coming weeks.
