WWE in Saudi Arabia: line-up for Super ShowDown includes Brock Lesnar, Goldberg and Roman Reigns
So far, these are the matches that have been announced by the WWE
The card for WWE’s Super ShowDown is starting to come together. The wrestling event is set to take place at the Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard in Riyadh on Thursday, February 27 and now features seven matches on the card after another match has just been announced. The Raw tag team champions Seth Rollins and Murphy will defend their titles against The Street Profits.
Just last week, it was announced that the first women's title match will take place as SmackDown champion Bayley will defend her title against either Carmella or Naomi. There will also be a gauntlet-style match taking place with Aj Styles, Bobby Lashley, Rusev, R-Truth, Erick Rowan and US Champion Andrade.
The card also features Universal Champion "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt taking on WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg for the championship while Roman Reigns and King Corbin will compete in a steel cage match.
It was also announced that the SmackDown Tag Team champions The New Day would take on the newly reunited tag team of The Miz and John Morrison and WWE champion Brock Lesner will face off against Ricochet, with the title belt on the line.
The two briefly met at the Royal Rumble in which Ricochet had an assist in eliminating Lesnar from the 30-man over the top rope match.
While it hasn't been confirmed yet, there are also rumours that WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan will also make an appearance at the event.
This will be the fifth pay-per-view event to take place in Saudi Arabia after WWE signed a massive 10-year deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority in 2018. Last year, the first women’s wrestling match took place in the kingdom as part of the Crown Jewel, at which Natalya defeated Lacey Evans.
The women received a standing ovation after their match. The event also featured British boxer Tyson Fury and former UFC champion Cain Velasquez, both making their in-ring debuts for the WWE.
