The Deadman has arrived in Saudi Arabia.
WWE posted a picture on social media of The Undertaker arriving in Saudi Arabia, just one day before the company's Super ShowDown event takes place. Undertaker isn't scheduled to compete on Super ShowDown but it had been previously reported that he was slated to appear on the show, but would be there to start the build to a WrestleMania match against AJ Styles.
Reports have begun swirling in advance of WWE Super ShowDown that The Undertaker has been spotted at a market in Saudi Arabia. Photographs circulating on social media seem to confirm the presence of the legendary Superstar at the site of WWE Super ShowDown. If true, why is he there?
His apparent presence obviously lends itself to more questions than answers. Undertaker’s in-ring appearances are an increasing rarity, and he is not yet advertised for a match at tomorrow’s show. And yet, it would make a certain sense for him to appear, as The Phenom already has plenty of history in the Kingdom and, perhaps, some unfinished business as well.
Not only did Undertaker compete at a pair of 2018 events in Saudi Arabia — defeating Rusev in a Casket Match and falling to the reunited DX alongside Kane — he memorably battled Goldberg at last year’s WWE Super ShowDown event. Goldberg, of course, is scheduled to face “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship tomorrow. Depending on how things shake out, we could be headed from one rivalry straight to the other. It could be equally likely that The Deadman won’t be competing and will instead simply add his presence to the festivities. Tomorrow will bring the answers. Until then, we wait.
Fightful will have live coverage of Super ShowDown, starting on February 27 at noon ET.
