The first-ever match between Goldberg and The Undertaker was not what fans or WWE officials thought it would be.
As seen at Friday’s WWE Super ShowDown pay-per-view event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium on the WWE Network, the match was cut short after Goldberg knocked himself out. Minutes later, Taker hit a chokeslam for the win. Following the match, Taker didn’t seem happy with the match.
WWE’s Instagram account posted a photo from the contest which saw one fan leave a critical comment. “The Deadman” liked the comment as seen in the screenshot.
The fan wrote, “Can you please stop bringing Undertaker back now? Jesus Christ after everything he’s done for the company just let him retire in peace. Litterally, the match was terrible because those two guys are in their 50s, they can’t compete at Main Event level anymore. You saw how Undertaker was struggling to stand after just 5 minutes, and Goldberg was too weak to even pull off a jackhammer. Just let them live out the rest of their days in peace, or they’ll end up getting seriously hurt.”
Time will tell what the future holds for The Undertaker and Goldberg going forward regarding their in-ring status.
