Elias Reveals He Was The Undertaker's Original Opponent At WWE Super ShowDown 2019
The Deadman faced Goldberg instead...
At the Raw after WrestleMania 35, The Undertaker returned to WWE and interrupted Elias. The Phenom then made his way to the ring and Tombstoned The Drifter.
Elias recently revealed on Instagram the segment was supposed to kickstart a feud between the two Superstars leading to a match at Super ShowDown 2019. WWE changed their minds, however, and The Undertaker went one on one with Goldberg instead.
Elias 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."
'Taker's match against Goldberg is ultimately remembered as one of the worst matches in WWE history and both wrestlers are lucky they weren't seriously injured. The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion suffered a concussion early in the match and almost broke The Undertaker's neck after he botched a Jackhammer.
