The much-awaited rock battle of WWE Super Showdown kicked off in full swing and it was packed with action-pack rosters, high-end emotions and a lot of jaw-dropping moments. From Universal Champion Seth Rollins to Big Dog Roman Reigns everybody was looking on fire to take the ring at super show. The star-studded event took place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, Saudi Arabia on June 7.
Here are some exciting matches from WWE Super Showdown which created a buzz among the WWE fans:
Seth Rollins vs Brock Lesnar (WWE Universal Championship)
The Universal Champion Seth Rollins kept his promise alive at the grand stage of Super Showdown. The heavily bandaged champion who is still trying to recover from Mr. MITB’s encounter wrestled like a warrior against WrestleMania 35 winner Baron Corbin. At the beginning of the nail-biting match, Corbin seemed to dominate the ring against Rollins as the injured giant started off a bit slower. But later Rollins got back on his feet and smashed a big sling-blade over the American giant. Before the wrestler could understand about the next move of Rollins, he rolled back at Corbin and retained his Universal Champion’s title.
This led to a heavy celebration in the ring for Rollins but the moment Universal Champion was about to wrap up his show, The Beast Incarnate arrived on the stage with his Money in the Bank briefcase. After seeing Brock Lesnar at WWE Super ShowDown, Universal Champ forgot all his celebration and ambushed the giant in order to take his revenge. Rollins straightly attacked the ‘Beast in the Bank’ with a steel chair and also stomped his MITB briefcase before leaving the ring. Rollins truly showed who is the boss here in WWE against Lesnar.
Finn Balor vs Andrade (Intercontinental Championship Match)
One of the most favourite giants of WWE, Finn Balor kick started his match in typical demon disguise against WWE SmackDown superstar Andrade. The Mexican professional wrestler pinned down the demon in the beginning by hitting a double dropkick off the ropes but this was not enough to beat the Irish star. Balor then in his answer flew over the ropes and aimed a huge dive on the opponent in order to grab the Intercontinental Championship title against Andrade.
Roman Reigns vs Shane McMahon
In the highly anticipated battle of the show, Roman Reigns was taking on Shane McMahon. In a big move to defeat ‘Big Dog’ at flagship event of Super ShowDown, McMahon unleashed a Superman Punch on the wrestler and choked him up in the triangle. As a result, Shane knocked down the Big Dog Reigns before the last three count in the ring.
Lucha House Party vs. Lars Sullivan
WWE star Lars Sullivan knocked out high-rated group of Kalisto, Dorado and Gran Metalik with the help of DQ. In the match which seemed to look in full control of the Lucha dragons suddenly turned around as Sullivan took all three men out from the Super ShowDown ring after once handed them over a DQ in the match.
It was Kalisto who started the battle first against Lars which was later followed by Dorado and Metalik who tagged the wrestler with many big kicks. This resulted in Lars’ bleeding from the mouth. Sullivan looked in major trouble for the first time but he somehow bounced back on the stage and pulled out all three giants.
Randy Orton vs Triple H
The two globally known giants of WWE, Randy Orton and Triple H then started off their enthralling roster where SmackDown millennium Orton defeated Triple H with the help of his surprising RKO which came out to pin the wrestler out of nowhere. Though, HHH tried to lock the cross face amid the tussling battle but the efforts went in vain as Randy fought back hardly and won the game against the Hunter.
