We are just a couple of days away from the third instalment of WWE's Saudi Arabia megaevents, WWE Super ShowDown, which will take place live from the city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

The card for the show looks set with many amazing matches announced. If WWE books this well, it could well be one of the best PPVs of the year. But there are certain booking decisions that WWE and Vince McMahon should avoid to turn the fans against them.

In this article, let's take a look at the 3 decisions at WWE Super ShowDown that could cause a massive backlash among fans. What would be your reaction if any of these happened? Let me know in the comments section below.


#3 The Demon King suffering a loss

In what could be the best match of the night, Finn Balor would defend his Intercontinental Championship against another former NXT Champion and Mexico's next big star, Andrade.

What makes this match special is Balor bringing back his Demon King avatar to the ring. We last saw the Demon King at WrestleMania 35 where he pretty much squashed Bobby Lashley to win the Intercontinental Championship.

While it could have been a great opportunity to build a new star in Andrade by putting the Intercontinental title on him, the inclusion of the "Demon King" factor has just made it all too difficult to do the same.

In case you don't know, The Demon King has been the most protected character on the main roster, being undefeated ever since Balor's move up from NXT in 2016. Throughout this time, Balor has defeated superstars like Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt, and many more as the Demon King.

The booking of the character is indeed justified as The Demon is a huge attraction and should be protected well. While every good thing needs to come to an end, WWE Super ShowDown is not a big enough stage for the Demon to suffer his first main roster defeat.

The rivalry has also not been built that nicely for the fans to be invested in it. Andrade pinning Balor might turn the crowd against him as fans might not like seeing the Demon suffer a loss.
