As part of a 10-year deal with the country, WWE are going back to Saudi Arabia once again next month.

Their last show came in November in the form of Crown Jewel, with the main event seeing Shawn Michaels come out of retirement to team with his former partner Triple H to face the Brothers of Destruction - Kane and The Undertaker.

We also saw the 'WWE World Cup' that wasn't like a World Cup at all take place, and to be fair we are still seeing storyline progression from that tournament with the whole Shane McMahon and The Miz feud.

It was made clear when news of the first show in 2018 - Greatest Royal Rumble - was being put together that the money men behind the show wanted many legends to appear.

They've managed to secure another big name for the upcoming event on June 7 - which has been named Super ShowDown, the exact same as the Australia show that was hosted in October.

It was confirmed last week that Hall of Famer Goldberg would be competing for the first time since WrestleMania 33, where his brief Universal Championship run ended at the hands of Brock Lesnar.

It seemed as though the WCW legend may face Bobby Lashley at the event after the pair teased an interaction on social media, but in the last hour WWE have confirmed his opponent - and it's huge news.

For the first time ever, Goldberg will go one-on-one with The Undertaker, in a bout that's around 20 years in the making.

Goldberg and The Undertaker have never gone one-on-one against each other - that will change on June 7

The two have actually had a stare-down at the 2017 Royal Rumble, and the Raw prior to the event, but never a match together.

With both being over the age of 50 now, it's not going to be a technical classic, but it'll be very intriguing to see how long the match goes and who goes over who.

Also confirmed for the event is Triple H v Randy Orton who must be facing each other for the 100th time now, and a 50-man Battle Royal match has also been confirmed.

There's going to be a massively mixed reaction to the already announced matches, and also the return to Saudi Arabia after the controversy in November, but you cannot deny that Goldberg v The Undertaker is very, very interesting.
