WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg, Brock Lesnar & WWE Legend The Undertaker has been officially announced to be a part of WWE’s next event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It was recently announced by The WWE that they will be returning to The King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Friday, June 7th at 8PM AST. In addition to Goldberg, Brock Lesnar & The Undertaker, WWE announced that Roman Reigns, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, Braun Strowman, WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins & AJ Styles will also be part of the event.
No matches have been announced as of this writing, although The Undertaker is rumored to be facing Elias. If Goldberg faces Brock Lesnar, it would be their fourth meeting on PPV. Goldberg won the first two matches at WrestleMania XX & Survivor Series 2016. Lesnar, who recently announced that he would not be returning to The UFC, defeated then-WWE Universal Champion Goldberg for the title at WrestleMania 33 in 2017 in Goldberg’s last match for the company.
This will be WWE’s first event in Saudi Arabia since the controversial Crown Jewel Show last November in Riyadh. WWE held the event despite backlash after Saudi Arabia was believed to have ordered the murder of Journalist Jamal Khashoggi. You can check out WWE’s full announcement below:
