The Undertaker will forever be regarded as legend in the world of professional wrestling. His contributions to the business will never be forgotten as he has given 30 years of his life and sacrificed his body.

The Undertaker and Goldberg squared off against each other at WWE Super Showdown in 2019. For many fans this was a true dream match as they have been wanting to see the two duke it out inside the squared circle for many years.

Unfortunately, the dream match turned into a nightmare as it was a botchfest and it could have turned out to be fatal for both competitors involved during various instances.

While speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, Goldberg talked about his catastrophic match against The Undertaker. Goldberg admitted he didn’t know if he could’ve gone through the match. He also claimed he got concussed during the match as well.


“Yeah, 100%. Undertaker in Saudi,” he said about matches he didn’t think he could finish. “I’d been out for a while and everybody’s got a routine, and I kind of forgot my routine. But I remembered the headbutt. So, on the way out, I headbutt the door. And I don’t know where I am after that, I’ve got no idea what’s going on.

I’m kind of getting to the ring and then we’ve got the spot where he moves and I hit the turnbuckle. Well, I didn’t go out and look at the turnbuckle beforehand, and it was a different setup from what we normally would have at Raw or SmackDown. I took that one. I try to take things as realistic as possible and I took it wrong. So, let’s just say I got another concussion right there and opened myself up pretty good.

It’s the referee and the booker’s responsibility to call what’s going on in there. You know, they’re on the mic and the headset and everything. The referee, I remember he came up to me 10, 15 times during that match, ‘how’re you doing?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m good, I’m good.’ And by the time he’d walk away, I’d go, ‘I don’t know what’s going on.’

It was a different answer every time and the fact is, I never should’ve done what I did. But I did, I tried to go through with it but unfortunately, it turned out to be a debacle. It’s a wonder that we both didn’t get smashed during that match. It was a very bad missed opportunity. But hey, at the end of the day, I was just trying to provide a better show for everybody else.”

The Undertaker had previously mentioned how he hated the match and regretted doing it. Both The Undertaker and Goldberg would go on to have better matches in order to redeem themselves from the colossal failure that was their Super Showdown encounter.
