Goldberg won’t win the Universal title

WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg will face “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship at Super Showdown 2020. Earlier reports suggested that a shocker could be in-store where Goldberg would end up defeating The Fiend and become the new champion. This could cause a mega Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns match at Wrestlemania 36.

But the latest from Wrestling Observer updated The Fiend vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship is still the current plan at WrestleMania 36. So Goldberg would put over The Fiend digesting a loss at Super Showdown. Thus the Fiend would be the only third name after Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker to pin Goldberg, clean.

Christian is returning at the Road to Wrestlemania

It looks like the former World Heavyweight Champion Christian could be coming back to the WWE after a long hiatus to get involved in the Edge-Randy Orton feud. Brad Shepard is the one who stated the following regarding a potential comeback by the Captain Charisma,

“According to a source in WWE, retired Superstar Christian has been discussed as a possibility to get involved in the rivalry between Edge and Randy Orton.

I’m told his involvement may even include an in-ring return, pending medical clearance.

The plan is for the rivalry between Edge and Randy Orton to go all the way to April for WrestleMania 36, so they’ll need to fill time and the backstory is already there.”

It will be interesting to see whether WWE uses Christian in an in-ring capacity especially considering that he was already reportedly retired from in-ring competition.

Vince McMahon’s preference for the event’s main event is still believed to be Roman Reigns vs Bray Wyatt.”

But Raw executive director is heavily pushing for McIntyre to get the main event spotlight. So the plans may have changed in recent times as WWE will be making Drew McIntyre get ready to headline Wrestlemania, officially.

Sting vs. Undertaker happening at Wrestlemania 36

Perhaps the biggest news around this year’s Wrestlemania is the comeback match of The Undertaker at the grandest stage of them all. After one year’s hiatus, he may be competing in the showcase of immortals in a massive showdown against Sting.

According to talkSPORT.com, WWE Hall of Famer Sting has been cleared by the doctors for an in-ring return. He was openly campaigning for the dream match against The Undertaker which is said to be granted by the WWE officials,

“WCW icon has been medically cleared to have another WWE match. And it’s believed that match will be with The Undertaker.

Whether it is on or off, Sting seems determined to get his match and Undertaker would likely enjoy working with him too.”

The Dirty Sheets has already reported that Sting signed a deal with WWE during Royal Rumble 2020 weekend for one more match, at least. Previously the plans were to put him in a match against The Fiend at Super Showdown. But Goldberg secured that spot which may be why we can expect to see Sting could be booked in the dream match at Wrestlemania.
