Welcome to Ringside News’ results for WWE Super ShowDown 2019.
Today’s show from Saud…. I mean Jeddah, is WWE’s third big event in the Middle East. Now we all know these events are controversial, to say the least, but there isn’t much point talking about it here. The show is happening and we’re here to tell you about it.
With that in mind, the main event, presumably, for Super ShowDown is The Undertaker Vs. Goldberg. Truth be told, this a match that nobody wanted to see and has trainwreck written all over it – although Taker’s last match in Saudi Arabia was really good. Yet on SmackDown Live, when Goldberg cut a promo and Undertaker appeared, the electricity was palpable and it just further cemented the notion that today’s stars lack that Superstar aura. Of course, most of it isn’t their fault, but that doesn’t change the fact that Taker and Goldberg drummed up more excitement in one night than Corbin and Rollins have done in a year.
Speaking of which, Baron Corbin will face Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship, while Dolph Ziggler will face Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship. The latter match will simply be an in-ring masterclass from two veterans, while the former isn’t all that exciting, except for the fact that Brock Lesnar is lurking around with the Money In The Bank briefcase. Though if history tells us anything, it’s that Brock will probably decide not to cash-in and tell us to watch Raw on Monday, where he “definitely” will cash-in.
Elsewhere tonight, you have Becky Lynch fac…no, wait, there’s no women allowed. That’s right. Anyway, so it’s Triple H Vs. Randy Orton. Another random encounter threw together for the sake of this PPV, but these two have such a long history together that it should be a fun match regardless. Here’s hoping Triple H has a cool entrance if nothing else.
The rest of the card consists of Finn Balor Vs. Andrade, Braun Strowman Vs. Bobby Lashley, Roman Reigns Vs. Shane McMahon, The Uso’s Vs. The Revival, Lucha House Party Vs. Lars Sullivan, and a 50-Man Battle Royal. As you can tell, it’s a hefty card that is likely to run four hours. Starting with the Kick-Off Show at 1 PM.
And that’s the preview for WWE Super ShowDown. What matches are you excited for? Will you even watch? Let us know by downloading the Ringside News app, following us on Twitter or Instagram, or simply leaving a comment. And remember to enjoy the show!
