Well, it's official. Goldberg will be facing The Undertaker on June 7th at Saudi Arabia. Along with it, WWE announced Randy Orton vs Triple H as well, presumably "one last time". Either way, it now puts to rest all we need to know about Goldberg's appearance for Saudi Arabia.

We got the date, we got the potential headliner, we got a big marquee match between two more legends in Orton & Triple H, and we finally got the name of the show - WWE Super ShowDown

This is quite an interesting match up, but one that most will argue is far too late for. Naturally, it's a valid argument because both legends are clearly well past their prime. The Undertaker has looked worse almost every match he wrestles, while Goldberg hasn't stepped into the ring for over two years. The last time he did, it was for a five-minute match.

We're in for another short, yet money match that WWE plans to centre the Saudi Arabia show around. Here are five theories as to why this match is happening.

#5. Easy money

Goldberg can earn seven figures in minutes

The reality is that it's a big win for pretty much everyone involved except the fans who are critical of the match. Realistically speaking, Goldberg and The Undertaker will not be more than five minutes.

Even during Goldberg's comeback run, the longest appearance he had in a match was essentially at WrestleMania in the Universal title match and even then, it wasn't as long as many expected. Either way, the point is that Goldberg can and will train hard, but we all know that the match won't go on long.

Goldberg and The Undertaker will likely earn a good seven figures just for spending a few minutes in the ring. Anyone in their position would be crazy to decline that.
