The WCW legend and Undertaker will lock horns one-on-one on June 7 at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah for the first time ever.
The three-time world champion spoke out about the upcoming dream match on his personal Instagram account where he shared an image of himself and Taker from the 2017 Men’s Royal Rumble Match, the only time in which they came face-to-face.
The former World Heavyweight Champion said there were many reasons why it was tough to get on board with this fight and one of them was that the bout will probably not be as highly-anticipated as it would be during the Monday Night Wars in the early 2000s.
But the ex-Universal Champion understands that the past can’t be changed and he still considers the upcoming encounter as a dream match.
Many contributing factors making it an extremely difficult decision for me to accept this match
The 52-year-old veteran has tremendous respect for Undertaker’s legendary career but is now focused on beating him in Saudi Arabia.
Goldberg posted: “Many contributing factors making it an extremely difficult decision for me to accept this match.
“A match against #Undertaker would’ve been a dream 10-15 years ago but it never happened.
“We can’t change the past, but somehow the stars have aligned and though it be bit later than desired, this matchup is still a dream for me.
“I have nothing but respect for Taker, he’s a legend, BUT now I do what I do… prep for war 1 more time.”
Goldberg’s last match took place at WrestleMania 33 where he lost the Universal Championship to Brock Lesnar.
Undertaker’s most recent fight was at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia where he reformed The Brothers of Destruction with his scripted brother Kane.
But the three-time tag team champions lost to D-Generation X, consisted of Triple H and the returning Shawn Michaels.
Super ShowDown will also stage a 50-Man Battle Royal – the contestants have yet to be announced.
Triple H will also take on his former Evolution protege Randy Orton with whom he has had many legendary encounters in the past.
There is no confirmation as to whether or not female wrestlers will be performing in Saudi Arabia after being omitted from the first two shows, the Greatest Royal Rumble and Crown Jewel.
