"The Fiend" Bray Wyatt will defend his WWE Universal Championship against Hall of Famer Goldberg at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia. Goldberg appeared on the latest episode of SmackDown where he issued a challenge to "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt. It was instantly accepted by the champion.
Goldberg was expected to make his much-awaited return to WWE after a six-month hiatus. He last entered inside the squared circle to decimate Dolph Ziggler at WWE SummerSlam. Goldberg lost to Undertaker at Super ShowDown last year. While fans expected to see the 53-year-old in San Jose, California, Goldberg appeared on the show via satellite to lay down a challenge for the Universal Championship at Super ShowDown.
Goldberg, who lost the Universal Championship to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33, admitted that he never received a rematch for his championship. The 53-year-old revealed that he craved another championship and wasted no time in challenging "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt for a match at Super ShowDown.
