Backstage News From WWE’s Super Showdown Event

WWE Super Showdown has certainly been making waves ever since the event went down in Saudi Arabia last Friday, but not for the best reasons. Fightful reported on a series of backstage notes from the show, which certainly provides fans with an interesting look behind the curtain.

  • Vince McMahon was backstage at the event, and has been to every single Saudi show thus far.
  • The company, and Vince, see it as an opportunity to show both parties that they’re serious about the deal.
  • Goldberg’s family being present at the event was part of his condition to wrestle at the show.
  • Some of the wrestlers that spoke to Fightful were surprised the Taker/Goldberg match went as long as it did.
  • The decision regarding not featuring women on the show was made very close to the start of the show.
  • The conditions were said to be miserable due to the heat, with “hydration salt” drinks being passed around to talent in order to avoid dehydration.
