WWE Super ShowDown 2019: 5 Points to Note
- There were many newsworthy points emerging from the PPV in Jeddah.
WWE Super ShowDown has come and gone and fans and critics weren't shy to let the world know what they thought of the PPV. WWE went big for this event, giving us a dream match that we thought we would never see between two legends, Goldberg and The Undertaker.
Nobody was expecting these two Superstars to put on a flawless match and with them having a combined age of 106 years. Plus, the extremely hot temperature in the stadium that night, things didn't go very well for the two wrestlers.
It was painful watching these two men together in the ring and one can't really blame them for what went down.
Sure, there were career threatening botches, but these two did try to put on the best match they could but it just didn't come out the way they wanted it to.
WWE's preceding event in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Crown Jewel, received generally negative reviews from fans and critics, and this year's event continued that trend. Remember, WWE has a 10-year deal with Saudi Arabia, so this was just the third event under their agreement and there is still plenty of more to come.
A lot went down at the event, such as The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, failing to cash in his Money in the Bank contract, Roman Reigns losing to Shane McMahon and Mansoor winning the largest battle royal in WWE.
With that being said, here are five points to note from WWE Super ShowDown.

#5 Brock Lesnar failed to be A meaningful MITB contract holder
Brock Lesnar shocked the world at the Money in the Bank PPV when he made a surprise appearance and won the contract by retrieving the briefcase.
Fans were not happy with this at first because they didn't want to see Lesnar as Universal Champion again. When The Beast became the Beast in the Box, it made him fun to watch for a while as Lesnar dancing in a WWE ring is truly a remarkable sight.
However, with the company telling fans that Lesnar is going to cash in his contract only for him to change his mind later, it didn't help anyone and the mind games were not working with the WWE Universe.
Lesnar had plenty of chances to cash in his contract on either Rollins or Kofi Kingston, but instead, he chose to fly thousands of miles away to Saudi Arabia only to suffer a failed cash in attempt.
R-Truth has made the 24/7 title mean something compared to Brock Lesnar as Mr. Money in the Bank, who is carrying something he doesn't need.
