Goldberg and The Undertaker received a lot of criticism for their match at WWE Super ShowDown earlier this year, but Roman Reigns has defended them.

Goldberg and The Undertaker were heavily criticised by fans and critics alike for their Super ShowDown match in June in Saudi Arabia as it was filled with mistakes and botches that could have caused serious injury.

Since then, some have argued that both superstars should retire from the ring as a result, but both have gone on to wrestle again, The Deadman at Extreme Rules and the WCW icon will wrestle later today at SummerSlam.

During an interview with ESPN to promote being on the cover of WWE 2K20, Reigns defended Goldberg and The Undertaker for their Super ShowDown match, saying it was a tough day for everyone in the Saudi heat.

He said: “First of all, it was so cool. It was unfortunate what happened out there in the desert [against Goldberg in Saudi Arabia]. It was a tough situation. It was hot as hell out there.

"Those guys aren’t in the ring all the time. You have to have your wrestling legs under you. Even when I miss a few live events, I can feel it.

"This is one of those things, the more you do it, the better you are, the better off you are, the better you feel in the ring.”

The Undertaker had the opportunity to redeem himself at Extreme Rules last month, and The Big Dog believe he did just that.

He said: “That was just the main focus: Get him out there, and let’s have fun. He was moving good. He felt that high boot, damn near went over everybody’s head. He’s in great shape, he looked good.

"To be honest, I might be lying if I said there’s gonna be a [better] dream partner out there. That night was so cool, I don’t think I’ll be able to up that. The only other type of tag situations that have been as meaningful have been within The Shield to me because those are my brothers.”

Goldberg will have the chance to redeem himself tonight when he takes on Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam.
