Live Results For WWE Super ShowDown 2020

The next stop on the road to WrestleMania 36...

Welcome to Cultaholic's live results for WWE Super ShowDown and join us throughout the evening as we provide updates from the Mohammed Abdu Arena on The Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

10 matches have been announced for the card, as the show kicks off at 5 pm GMT.

Our very own Ross Tweddell and Jack King gave their predictions as to what they expect to see on the pay-per-view earlier, which you can check out below:



Kickoff Show: The O.C. def. The Viking Raiders

The Viking Raiders dominated the early portions of the match, as Ivar and Erik worked over Karl Anderson, until he managed to get the hot tag to Luke Gallows. The man formerly known as Festus then dominated Erik with eye rakes and power moves. Anderson continued from where his partner left off, wearing Erik down. He eventually managed to make the hot tag as Ivar came flying into the ring dropping both members of The O.C like a one-man wrecking crew. He then went through the usual Viking Raider tropes, doing a cartwheel and leading the crowd in a "War!" chant.

The contest settled down soon after as both teams regained their composure. Ivar then suddenly tried to connect with a Moonsault but missed, which allowed The O.C. to deliver Magic Killer for the win.

The Undertaker def. AJ Styles, R-Truth, Erick Rowan, Andrade, and Bobby Lashley To Win The Tuwaiq Mountain Trophy Gauntlet Match

R-Truth Eliminates Bobby Lashley 

R-Truth is the first man to enter as he leads the crowd in a rendition of "What's up!" which the audience laps up. Bobby Lashley then entered next to kick off the Gauntlet match.

The bout started off evenly as R-Truth hit Lashley with a Hurricanrana and a Stinger Splash until The All Mighty regained his composure and dumped him to the outside. After Truth got back in the ring, Lashley used his power to dominate his opponent with rest holds and a standing suplex.

Truth then fought back and channelled his childhood hero, John Cena, as he connected with a Five Knuckle Shuffle. He then went for the Attitude Adjustment, but Lashley fought out of it. Lashley went for the spear but Truth used his intellect to duck out of the way and the former Intercontinental Champion went running into the ring post, and then fell back over his opponent, giving the former 24/7 Champion the opportunity to roll him up for the elimination.

Lashley was noticeably angered by his elimination and proceeded to beat down Truth, leaving him as easy pickings for Andrade, who was the next to enter.

R-Truth Eliminates Andrade

R-Truth injured his shoulder during Lashley's post-elimination beatdown, which Andrade quickly took advantage of, working over the arm and shoulder.

El Idolo then hit Truth with the Double Knees in the corner, but Truth showed his fighting spirit to kick out at two. With the former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion prone in the other corner, Andrade tried to connect with more knees but went flying over the top rope after Truth ducked out the way.

Truth managed to fight back, however, and Andrade went for the Spinning Elbow, only to smash his head against Truth's causing him to quickly collapse to the floor. Truth then fortuitously fell onto Andrade to cover him for the 1-2-3.

R-Truth Eliminates Erick Rowan

Erick Rowan was next to enter and quickly delivered a vicious slam and elbows to Truth. His opponent managed to fight back yet again and hit Rowan with a Suicide Dive. After both competitors got back to their feet, Rowan accidentally tossed Truth into the Steel Steps, sending his cage tumbling to the floor.

Noticeably shaken, Rowan proceeded to smash Truth in the face with the Steel Steps, drawing the disqualification.

AJ Styles Eliminates R-Truth

Truth had some time to recover before the next round as Humble Styles slowly walked to the ring. Upon the match restarting, Styles beat him down, mocking Truth in the process as he jigged and jived around the ring.

After gyrating a bit more, AJ locked in the Calf Crusher, causing Truth to tap out.

Rey Mysterio's music then played twice, but The Master Of The 619 failed to appear on the entrance ramp. The broadcast then cut backstage to show Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson beating down Rey.

Styles then declared he was the winner by forfeit and demanded the referee ring the bell. The ring announcer then informed the crowd that if his opponent didn't make it to the ring at the count of 10, Styles would be declared the winner.

However, the feed cut to the back again to show Gallows and Anderson laid out. A man in a long black coat then passed across the screen, and The Undertaker's gong filled the arena.

10 minutes later, The Deadman finally made it to the ring to start the final round of the Gauntlet.

Styles protested at Undertaker entering the match but only walked into a hellacious Chokeslam.

Taker then covered The Phenomenal One for the 1-2-3.

The Miz & John Morrison def. The New Day To Win The SmackDown Tag Team Championships

Big E and The Miz started out the match as The Champion quickly overpowered The A-Lister. He locked him in an Abdominal Stretch and proceeded to slap Miz on the bum. Miz escaped the hold, however, and tagged in John Morrison, who took Big E out with a Corkscrew Splash to the outside.

E managed to tag Kofi Kingston into the match and he fought back and forth with Morrison until he connected with the SOS for a near fall. E was then tagged back into the bout, but The Shaman Of Sexy didn't realise and continued to focus on Kingston. This gave The New Day the opportunity to combine for a Double Stomp from Big E's shoulders, but it wasn't enough as Morrison again kicked out.

Miz then entered the contest and led the crowd in Saudi Arabia in a flurry of It Kicks. He then tagged in Morrison and the former Tag Team Champions wore down E. With Big E prone, Morrison tried to hit Starship Pain but The New Day member rolled out the way.

With The Prince Of Parkour staggered, Kingston and E combined for Midnight Hour, but Miz broke up the pin. He then tossed Kingston into the guardrail and hit E with the Skull Crushing Finale, but he managed to kick out at 2 3/4.

Kingston then tagged in and he and Miz fought back and forth, but suddenly, when the Official's back was turned, Morrison smashed a steel chair into Kofi's ribs, which allowed Miz to roll up the Champion and grab a handful of tights for the pinfall victory.

With that, we have new SmackDown Tag Team Champions.

Angel Garza def. Humberto Carrillo

The two fought back and forth, and then suddenly Garza delighted everyone watching as he tore his pants off. He then locked his cousin in a Camel Clutch, but Carrillo recovered and fought out of it, hitting Garza with a Spinning Drop Kick.

The pair hit each other with Superkicks to try and get the crowd to make some noise, but everyone in the front row was, instead, on the phone.

They then exchanged near falls, and on the fifth attempt, Garza managed to pin his cousin's shoulders to the mat after he went for a Sunset Flip.

Seth Rollins & Murphy def. The Street Profits To Retain The Raw Tag Team Championships

The Street Profits made their way to the ring in the colours of Saudi Arabia's flag. The crowd actually cheered in this one, with one fan taking a giant Street Profits cup as a sign.

After Montez Ford connected with a couple of Dropkicks, Murphy channelled all that Seth Rollins has taught him to take control of the contest. He then tagged in his Messiah and they continued to beat down Ford.

Montez eventually reached out to Angelo Dawkins for the hot tag, and he used his Keith Lee like power to take out The Monday Night Messiah and his Disciple. After delivering a combination of spinning clotheslines, Dawkins tagged Ford back in as they teamed to deliver the Salida Del Sol.

Ford then hit the Frog Splash but before the referee could slap the mat for the count of three, Murphy pulled his Lord and Saviour to safety.

Later in the match, Murphy and Rollins went for a Double Pedigree but Dawkins and Ford countered into a Double DDT. With the Champions on the outside, Dawkins hit a Flying Barrell Roll.

Rollins and Murphy managed to regain their composure, however, and with Dawkins draped over the bottom rope, Rollins snuck behind the referee and hit a vicious Stomp, which allowed Murphy to cover Angelo for the pinfall victory.

Mansoor def. Dolph Ziggler

Robert Roode was quickly ejected from the ringside area after he pushed Mansoor before the match started.

Despite Mansoor being from Saudi Arabia, the crowd still didn't make any noise. Dolph Ziggler used many tropes associated with Chris Jericho to dominate the match, asking if Mansoor wanted to give up.

Later, Mansoor managed to execute his babyface comeback and won the match after hitting a Moonsault, in which he went knees first into Ziggler's chest.

Brock Lesnar def. Ricochet To Retain The WWE Championship

A video package aired before the match, hyping up Ricochet's chances of winning.

The Challenger was the first to enter, sporting new attire as Ricochet has seemingly reverted back to shorts.

With both competitors in the ring, Paul Heyman gave one of his usually accurate spoilers and declared Brock Lesnar would walk away as the victor and defend his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. The company must not have plans for the Champion to defend the title at Elimination Chamber.

Ricochet came charging out the blocks, but after missing a Dropkick, Lesnar took him to Suplex City as he proceeded to deliver German Suplex after German Suplex.

He then hit an F-5, and in under two minutes, Lesnar pinned The One And Only for the win.

Roman Reigns def. King Corbin In A Steel Cage Match

The year-long rivalry between Roman Reigns and King Corbin entered its latest chapter. Corey Graves gave hope to many as he declared "it's been a long time coming, but the end is in sight."

Reigns made sure no one could escape through the door as he chained it shut and ate a vicious fist from Corbin for his trouble.

The King Of WWE gained the upper hand as he tossed Reigns repeatedly into sides of the cage. With The Big Dog prone in the ring, Corbin tried to escape, but Reigns quickly recovered and pulled him down. Reigns then tried to escape, but Corbin caught him and tried to deliver an Avalance Powerbomb, but the former Universal Champion fought out of it.

The two Superstars then broke the padlock off the door, and Corbin almost escaped but Reigns stopped him by smashing the door into his head.

The former Mr Money In The Bank then connected with a hellacious Chokeslam but, unlike AJ Styles, Reigns managed to kick out. He then tried to deliver a Superman Punch to Reigns with the chain wrapped around his hand, but only suffered a Superman Punch from The Big Dog. Reigns thought he had the match won, but Corbin lifted his shoulder up at the count of two.

With both men back on their feet, Corbin tried to escape and both Superstars reached the top of the cage and exchanged blows.

After both men fell back into the ring, Reigns grabbed the chain, wrapped it around his fist, and connected with a vicious Superman Punch. He then covered Corbin for the win to end the long rivalry.

Bayley def. Naomi To Retain The SmackDown Women's Championship

The match started off evenly as both Superstars exchanged fists and athletic manoeuvres.

Naomi eventually gained the upper hand, connecting with the Double Stomp to the face, but Bayley countered into the Bayley to Belly, but only managed to get a near fall.

The former Funkadactyl then showed her resilience as Bayley beat her down with Kicks to the leg, a Back Suplex, and a running knee into the corner. Bayley then climbed to the top rope but got caught with an Enziguri.

With Bayley slumped on the mat, Naomi went for the Split-Legged Moonsault, but The Champion rolled out the way which gave Bayley the advantage as she trapped Naomi's leg inside her long t-shirt.

Bayley then debuted a new finisher where she slammed Naomi's face into the mat and covered her for the 1-2-3.

Goldberg def. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt To Win The Universal Championship 

The entrances alone took seven minutes.

The match started with a staredown between The Champion and The Challenger. Goldberg showed no signs of intimidation, and as the crowd cheered his name, he delivered a Spear to The Fiend.

The Fiend then sat up and locked in the Mandible Claw, but he managed to break free and connected with a second Spear. He then hit a third Spear, with Goldberg in the mood for hunting.

A fourth spear almost put Wyatt away, but he managed to get his shoulder up at 2 9/10.

The Fiend summoned something from deep within him, however, and sat up and locked in the Mandible Claw again. Goldberg screamed that he refused to give in and hit Wyatt with vicious knees and headbutts and hit The Fiend with a hellacious Jackhammer.

He then covered Wyatt for the 1-2-3 and with that, a 53-year-old man became Universal Champion after destroying The Fiend within five minutes.

The Fiend then sat up, looked at Goldberg, and as the lights went out, he left the stadium.
