WWE is heading to Saudi Arabia once more as it gears up for the 5th event that the company will be hosting in the country. Following the debacle of Crown Jewel, with the delayed flight for the WWE Superstars and the social media outrage that followed, it was assumed there would be quite a few issues with this event, but it appears that is not the case at all.
There have been a few matches announced for the show, but it remains to be seen how many of the Superstars will be heading to the Saudi Arabian show this time, and how large the card is going to be.

WWE Super ShowDown 2020 Predictions and Match Card
The following are the matches announced for the show so far.
#1 WWE Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs Ricochet
If there is one Superstar other than Drew McIntyre that was a thorn in the side of Brock Lesnar at the WWE Royal Rumble, it was Ricochet. The Superstar, known for his agility and ability inside the ring helped McIntyre in eliminating Brock Lesnar by hitting him with a low blow.
Now, having qualified for the Championship match on RAW by defeating Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley, Ricochet is well on his way to getting a shot at the title. Lesnar interrupted Ricochet's celebrations by hitting him with an F-5 to close off the show, letting him know exactly what he thought of him.
With that in mind, this match will be interesting, but the result is obvious. For the time being, the main feud that WWE is building up is between Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre, as the two will be in the main event of WrestleMania. Lesnar will not lose the title before that match.
Prediction: Brock Lesnar to defeat Ricochet
#2 WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (c) vs John Morrison and The Miz
If there is one title match where the titles could actually change hands, it's definitely this one. With John Morrison having only returned to WWE recently, he has not seen much success, but teamed up with The Miz, was able to become the #1 contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships.
For the moment, the team is definitely not going to be an easy challenge for the New Day. With that in mind, there might be a big change in Riyadh.
Predictions: John Morrison and The Miz to defeat The New Day
#3 WWE Universal Championship: The Fiend (c) vs Goldberg
The Fiend has erased every Superstar who has dared step in his path, and this includes Daniel Bryan. The Fiend defeated Daniel Bryan yet again at the WWE Royal Rumble, and that might be enough to bring an end to his reign of terror.
However, The Fiend is set to feature on the card. When Goldberg returned to SmackDown, it took The Fiend absolutely no time to issue the challenge to the former WWE Universal Champion. The two will now be facing each other at WWE Super ShowDown.
Predictions: The Fiend defeats Goldberg
#4 Gauntlet Match for Tuwaiq Trophy: AJ Styles vs Andrade vs Bobby Lashley vs Erick Rowan vs R-Truth vs Rusev
The Gauntlet Match for the Tuwaiq Trophy is an extremely important addition to the Super ShowDown. As always, there is a Saudi Arabian-exclusve trophy, with 6 top Superstars competing for the honor of getting yet another accomplishment next to their name. Also, with it being a gauntlet match, it will be heavily dependant on who comes out first. This could be the day for Rusev to finally have his big moment.
#5 Steel Cage Match: King Corbin vs Roman Reigns
King Corbin and Roman Reigns have been fighting forever. This is a feud that seemingly does not want to die out, but it has been announced that this will be the last time that they will be facing each other.
Corbin and Reigns will face each other in a Steel Cage Match to put their feud to a final rest.
Predictions: Roman Reigns
#6 WWE RAW Tag Team Match: Seth Rollins and Murphy (c) vs Street Profits
While The Street Profits are still new to the main roster, with them challenging Rollins and Murphy for the Tag Team Championships, they could easily come out as the winners. With Rollins and Murphy having other feuds to look into, that would make sense. However, now with apparently a referee having joined the disciples the future might be murky for the Street Profits.
Predictions: Seth Rollins and Murphy
#7 SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Bayley (c) vs Naomi
In a historic first, a Women's Championship Match will be held in Saudi Arabia, as Bayley and Naomi compete against each other. At this point, it's not likely that there will be any change, but the two will put on a show for the audience.
Appearance by Hulk Hogan
At this point, it might be said for sure that Hulk Hogan will be appearing at this year's WWE Super ShowDown. With rumors of a last match for Hogan to end things on his own terms, we might even see him in a match at Super ShowDown, although that seems unlikely for the time being.
