WWE news: Goldberg and The Fiend come face-to-face for the first time on SmackDown

Goldberg and The Fiend come face-to-face on SmackDown

Even though WWE are well down the Road to WrestleMania, they've first got to navigate through two special events before they reach Tampa.

They both come within nine days of each other, and the first takes place in just five days time.

Superstars are heading back to Saudi Arabia just four months after Crown Jewel, as the second Saudi-based Super ShowDown is set to take place in Riyadh on February 27.

WWE will be hoping that they don't encounter the problems of their last trip to the Middle East, where all SmackDown stars who travelled overseas missed the blue brand episode in Buffalo due to unexpected issues.

But a lot of the roster have had no issues in accepting the chance to go again, although WWE will be reportedly be travelling with a lighter number of superstars this time.

Goldberg has returned to WWE for Super ShowDown

The main event in Saudi Arabia's capital will see Bray Wyatt put his Universal Championship on the line against a true legend of wrestling.

He may have flopped in his last match on those shores against The Undertaker, but Goldberg has returned to WWE programming and he will be taking on Wyatt's alter-ego - The Fiend - for the title he won in Riyadh back at Crown Jewel from Seth Rollins.

Putting aside the fact that he's done nothing to deserve a title shot in 2020, Goldberg appeared on SmackDown last night to hype up the match for a final time.

Bray Wyatt surprised Goldberg with an episode of the Firefly Fun House

And this time, he finally got to come face-to-face with The Fiend after an impromptu episode of the Firefly Fun House.

What The Fiend ended up receiving though was what may end up happening this coming Thursday, as Goldberg hit him with a devastating Spear to leave him laying.

Wyatt had departed in the darkness no sooner than he arrived though, which means we have to wait for the actual match for him to get his hands on the WCW icon.

You could say that Wyatt isn't really being shown to be a monster as he keeps getting downed by superstars on SmackDown, including Goldberg, Daniel Bryan and Kane.

If you have a flashback to the early days of The Fiend, he was dominating everyone and not showing any signs of weakness.

But when it's come to the matches, he's always been on top, and it's expected to be no different at Super ShowDown where he will surely retain his title.
