• Original Opponent For The Undertaker At WWE Super ShowDown 2019

Former WWE 24/7 Champion Elias took to Instagram a few days ago to promote The Undertaker’s docuseries on the WWE Network.

While doing so, Elias confirmed that he was originally slated to face off against The Undertaker at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia in June 2019. However, plans changed when Goldberg agreed to work a match against Taker.

Below is what he wrote:

“Elias v Undertaker was set to happen in Saudi shortly after this segment. Everything about this night was electric. THINGS CHANGED. Myself and The Deadman have crossed paths multiple times since I’ve been here, and I hope it’s not the last.

There is a great story to be told both on screen & behind the curtain. He’s one of the greatest to ever do it. Check out Undertaker: The Last Ride on the WWE network to learn more about the man behind The Undertaker.”

Elias vs. Undertaker had been rumored since The American Badass appeared on the RAW after WrestleMania 35 to take him out.
