WWE returns to Saudi Arabia on June 7th for an event that is rumored to be called Super Showdown. The company is waiting until after Money in the Bank this weekend to begin the official build towards the show, since the storylines will make more sense after Sunday night’s pay-per-view.
Goldberg vs The Undertaker and Triple H vs Randy Orton are the only official singles matches on the card at present, while a 50-man Royal Rumble match has also been announced, but interestingly Braun Strowman may not be defending his Royal Rumble title from last year’s Greatest Royal Rumble show since the Monster Among Men may not even be part of the match if recent leaked images are to be believed.
There are many matches being advertised for WWE’s return to The Middle East including:
Drew McIntyre vs Braun Strowman
Seth Rollins vs Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship
Finn Balor vs Andrade for the Intercontinental Championship
Roman Reigns vs Shane McMahon
Kevin Owens vs Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship
The 50 man Royal Rumble match also has a number of names advertised including Daniel Bryan, Bobby Roode, The Miz, AJ Styles, Cesaro, Elias, Cedric Alexander, Sami Zayn, Aleister Black, Rey Mysterio, Bobby Lashley, Buddy Murphy, Jey Uso, Baron Corbin. It is worth noting that none of these matches are considered to be official at present and all cards are subject to change.
Given the direction that WWE’s storylines are taking at present all of these matches look likely to fit in well and lead in nicely to Stomping Grounds a few weeks later. These matches also seemingly give away the fact that Seth Rollins will retain his Universal Championship this weekend since he’s defending the title against Lesnar even though AJ Styles still stands in his way in Connecticut on Sunday night.
