In less than one month, wrestling fans around the world will finally be able to see two iconic legends face off in the ring. On June 7, 2019, The Undertaker will have a match against a returning Bill Goldberg on the WWE Super ShowDown card in Saudi Arabia. Goldberg hasn’t been in the ring for more than two years, but he is in the gym working hard to face “The Deadman,” and he’s made some great progress.
The Inquisitr reported the big match announcement earlier this week, and it’s hard to believe what WWE is doing. The Undertaker vs. Goldberg match has been teased on a number of occasions over the years, but for some reason, WWE never pulled the trigger on it.
At Super ShowDown, the first-ever match between the two will take place — and neither man has been in the ring for quite a while. Many had thought The Undertaker was done for good after his last match at WWE Crown Jewel in November, but it appears as if the time has not yet come for him to hang up his boots.
Goldberg has been out of the ring for much longer, as his last match was a loss to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33. There are many fans who felt as if that was his final in-ring bout as well, but the former WWE Universal Champion always said he likely had a few more left in him.
With three weeks to go until the pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia, Goldberg posted a photo of himself working out in the gym. The former world champion looks to be in the best shape of his life.

3 weeks out...... Best way to describe the final push is like shoving an elephant into a thimble! #whosnext #spear #jackhammer #aintdoneyet #devestationcontinues @wwe #runningoutoftime #notmessingaround #muaythai #wrestling @dodgeofficial #mayorofmuscleville ???????? #imback #oldschoolgoldberg ????
This is one of those face-offs that could be considered to be a dream match, as both men are legends of the ring. The Undertaker has dominated the squared circle for almost three decades, and Goldberg has one of the longest winning streaks in pro wrestling history.D
Despite both men working for WWE at the same time, throughout different runs, they have never had a match together — a rather surprising oversight that seems overdue for correction.
Goldberg is looking great, and appears ready to take on one of the most iconic legends in wrestling history in The Undertaker. In three weeks, WWE will present Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia. Some other interesting matches have been slated for the event, as well, including Triple H vs. Randy Orton, and a wild 50-man battle royal.
