It is now official -- "The Dead Man" will be a part of Thursday's return to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for their WWE Super ShowDown 2020 live WWE Network special.
As we reported previously, video surfaced online showing The Undertaker, as well as a number of additional WWE Superstars, arriving at the airport as they travel overseas for the big event (Watch Video Below).
Following the footage leak, WWE has posted a photo from the video on their official Twitter feed, which you can check out below.
Additionally, WWE.com posted an article confirming the news. Check that out below.
The Undertaker sighted in Saudi Arabia before WWE Super ShowDown
Reports had been swirling in advance of WWE Super ShowDown that The Undertaker had been spotted in Saudi Arabia. Earlier today, WWE social media confirmed the presence of the legendary Superstar at the site of WWE Super ShowDown.
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.
