• Backstage News On Who Got The Blame For Undertaker vs. Goldberg Not Living Up To The Hype
At WWE Super ShowDown 2019, The Undertaker defeated Goldberg in the main event of the show.
The match didn’t live up to its hype because Goldberg suffered a concussion during the match and this led to a lot of negative reaction from fans on Social Media.
According to Brad Shepard, Goldberg got most of the blame for this as the belief is that the match would’ve went according to plan had Goldberg not got knocked out during the match.
Also, people backstage in WWE were wondering why the match wasn’t booked as a simple 3-5 minute explosive match (similar to Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg at WrestleMania 33).
As we noted before, Goldberg vs. The Undertaker lasted for almost 10 minutes and it probably would’ve went longer, but Taker decided to go for the finish before something else happened.
