The event's storyline revolves around ongoing feuds between Superstars who usually compete in the same brand, i.e. either RAW and SmackDown.
WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg appeared in a video interview where he expressed his desire to challenge 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt for his Universal Championship as he never got a rematch for the title after losing it to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33. The Fiend accepted and the match was made official.
Ricochet won a No. 1 contender's triple threat match on the February 3 episode of RAW to earn a WWE Championship opportunity against Brock Lesnar at Super ShowDown.
After John Morrison came back to WWE, he has been featured on the Blue brand and has teamed up with his former tag team partner The Miz. Both him and The Miz have been feuding with SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day and will now challenge them for the titles after winning a No. 1 contender's match on SmackDown.
Roman Reigns and King Corbin have been continuing their feud throughout the past few months on SmackDown and after Corbin demanded to have another match with him, The Big Dog accepted and said that their match will take place inside a steel cage.
Apart from that, Superstars from RAW - AJ Styles, United States Champion Andrade, Erick Rowan, Bobby Lashley, R-Truth and Rusev were announced to take part in the first-ever Tuwaiq Trophy Gauntlet Match.
Carmella and Naomi will face each other on the February 21 episode of the Blue brand and the winner of that match will earn the opportunity to challenge Bayley for her SmackDown Women's Championship.
Seth Rollins and Murphy will defend their RAW Tag Team Championships against The Street Profits on Super ShowDown. The match was made official following February 17's episode of RAW where Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins came out to rescue Kevin Owens and The Viking Raiders from getting beaten down by Murphy and AOP.
This year's WWE Super ShowDown event will take place on Thursday, February 27th, 2020. The show will air live from the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on the WWE Network.
