As per The Game, the weather condition was not in favor of the wrestlers in Saudi Arabia, on that night. The temperature was 150 degrees with humidity being almost 100. The heat was draining out energy off their body. No wonder it affected the bodies of The Undertaker and Goldberg the most since they both are 50-plus. Check out more from Triple H on this matter during an interview with TalkSport,
“People can say what they want to say about Saudi Arabia or the match between Undertaker and Goldberg. Listen, my hats off to both of them, it was a bad situation. I can attest to it that it was about 105 degrees and 100 percent humidity at ringside and even Randy [Orton] and I when we were talking about it afterward, there were moments where I wanted to change gears but I just cannot! It’s humanly impossible at this moment. It was like wrestling in a sauna, it really was.” And there were those moments like when you step out of a sauna and you’re like ‘jeez, I’m lightheaded I might pass out’ – it was so ridiculously hot. And you put pressure on yourself and everything on top of that, so it’s a lot.” (Quotes courtesy NoDQ.com)
There have been numerous reports about the bygone match between The Undertaker and Goldberg, held at Super ShowDown earlier this year. This was about to be a dream match for the fans which could have delivered to the fullest extent. The fans have never witnessed these two legends wrestling in a match before this and hence the expectations were pretty much high.
All of those turned into disappointments, the way the two veterans executed the match. Most of the fans mentioned this one as perhaps the worst bout of their career for sure. They both could barely move properly resulting in several botches throughout the encounter. Goldberg even knocked himself out by hitting hard into the ring post causing a bust-open case.
Most of the pro-wrestling fanatics were out to post-mortem the matchup and passed their expert opinion and thereby pointing out that The Undertaker and Goldberg should immediately retire. Thankfully, they both managed to make a valiant comeback and saved their pro-wrestling careers for good. We hope to see them back in a wrestling ring, quite soon.
