5 Shocking decisions WWE made at Super ShowDown 2019
#2 The Cash In That Never Happened
You might be one of the few people that did not expect a cash in at Super ShowDown 2019, as the entire wrestling fanbase expected WWE to book Lesnar in either one of two matches at the show. The first is a potential war with Seth Rollins over the Universal Title, and the second would be shocking cash in on Kofi Kingston for the WWE Title, but neither of those things happened.
This was something many did not assume would happen, as Lesnar had been teasing a Money in the Bank cash in for the longest time, and now it seems like he won't do as he promised anytime soon. This bait-and-switch tactic by WWE will ruin the narrative they have set out, as fans don't appreciate the constant teasing by Lesnar, and that doesn't bode well for a programme that is supposed to the best the company has to offer.
#3 Home Town Hero
The fifty man battle royal WWE had been advertising at the Super ShowDown event was one of the least anticipated matches on the show's match card. While that might seem a bit unfair for the fans, you can't really blame them when the previous battle royal type match was the Greatest Royal Rumble match back in 2018, and that was an unfortunate flop. So, expectations were low heading into this one.
While the quality of the match was not anything to lose your head over, the match did give us a shocking but pleasant moment when Saudi Arabia's very own Mansoor eliminated Elias to shockingly win this match.
Now, while fans would complain that this victory should have been given to a star that would use the credibility on Raw or Smackdown Live, WWE going for an out of the box winner was a pleasant surprise. This might have been the loudest moment of the night, as Mansoor remains the home town hero by winning the biggest battle royal in WWE history.
