Time to hurry things up. We’re less than a month away from the latest WWE show in Saudi Arabia and now we need to get some of the matches set up. The card is likely to be bigger than most and that means things need to be added in a hurry. With nothing announced yet, WWE certainly needs to set up a few things and that’s what they did on Monday, along with giving us one other major detail for the show.
As announced on WWE.com, the show will feature a fifty man battle royal, Randy Orton vs. Triple H and a first time ever match between Goldberg vs. Undertaker. The battle royal will be the largest in WWE history while Orton vs. Triple H has taken place several times over the years, including headlining WrestleMania 25. Goldberg and Undertaker have only ever been in the same match once, when they appeared together in the Royal Rumble where Undertaker eliminated him. The announcement also officially named the show as Super ShowDown, which is the same name as a show in Australia last year.
They’ve done this before. Check out Undertaker and Goldberg’s only interaction:
Opinion: I’m not wild on some of these matches but Goldberg vs. Undertaker is an authentic dream match and something that a lot of fans have wanted to see for a long time. Orton vs. Triple H on the other hand isn’t the strongest match in the world and is something that we have seen several times before. The battle royal should be a nice way to get people on the show, though I’m worried about all the people who will be put into the thing.
