After a terrible match in Saudi Arabia, Undertaker was visibly upset with how the match had gone. However, did things escalate between the two legends?
Goldberg and Undertaker’s first-ever bout has gone down in history for all the wrong reasons.
The two legends met at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia and it has been reported that Goldberg was paid $2 million to make a return after seemingly retiring after WrestleMania 33.
The match went horribly wrong when Goldberg hit his head flush on the ring post, suffered a concussion and split himself wide open.
From there on in it was a botchfest that has received plenty of criticism and The Undertaker looked furious after the bell, despite being the victor.
Brad Shephard and Slice Wrestling – two inconsistent sources at best – had reported that things got heated between the Undertaker and Goldberg once they got backstage.
However, videos have also emerged of Goldberg collapsing at ringside on his way to the back and several outlets are reporting via their sources the altercation, in fact, did not happen.
talkSPORT can confirm our sources indicate that Undertaker was concerned at Goldberg’s condition, quite the opposite of the other reports.
Mike Johnson of PW Insider seems to corroborate our story with the longtime wrestling insider saying the rumours are false as various WWE officials have denied them and even said that Goldberg was in no shape to fight or argue with anyone due to his weak condition.
Johnson said: “I have not heard one person with any legitimacy claim this as being true.
“In fact, when I asked about that rumor, it was quickly shot down by those who were actually in Saudi Arabia, so I tend to think that story is 100% fiction.
“Goldberg was not in any position to be fighting with anyone after their match.
“My belief is that he was checked out by WWE’s medical staff and if there was interaction after, it was likely Undertaker checking on his well being.”
Considering the main event featured two men who do not compete regularly at a combined age of 105, hopefully the WWE will learn their lesson.
