The next chapter in WWE’s controversial relationship with Saudi Arabia continues, as they announce the name for the next mega show in the country.
Named ‘WWE Super ShowDown’, it will take place at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, June 7 at 9pm (7PM GMT). This show will be headlined by a first-time ever dream match between Goldberg and The Undertaker, a return to the battles between Triple H and Randy Orton as well as a 50-man battle royal.
In a press release on WWE.com, they have said;
The Saudi General Sports Authority will host WWE Super ShowDown at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, June 7, at 9 p.m. AST, and feature the first-ever match between WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg and Undertaker. In addition, the event will include Triple H vs. Randy Orton, as they create another chapter of their storied rivalry, and a 50-Man Battle Royal — the largest in WWE history.
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, which will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East.
Additional details on the event’s matches and regional broadcast information will be announced in the coming weeks.
This is the third WWE pay-per-view event held in Saudi Arabia, following ‘WWE Crown Jewel’ and ‘The Greatest Royal Rumble’. The first Super ShowDown took place last year in Melbourne, Australia.
