... WWE opted to get in on some of those sweet, sweet Undertaker clicks sites like ours have been enjoying since yesterday. They’re also hoping confirmation the Dead Man is in Riyadh ahead of Super ShowDown tomorrow (Thurs., Feb. 27) will drum up more interest in an event which will occur on a weekday afternoon here in the U.S.

WWE.com has an entire post speculating about what Taker might be doing in Saudi Arabia, which plants seeds for a confrontation with Goldberg:

The Undertaker sighted in Saudi Arabia before WWE Super ShowDown

Reports have begun swirling in advance of WWE Super ShowDown that The Undertaker has been spotted at a market in Saudi Arabia. Photographs circulating on social media seem to confirm the presence of the legendary Superstar at the site of WWE Super ShowDown. If true, why is he there?

His apparent presence obviously lends itself to more questions than answers. Undertaker’s in-ring appearances are an increasing rarity, and he is not yet advertised for a match at tomorrow’s show. And yet, it would make a certain sense for him to appear, as The Phenom already has plenty of history in the Kingdom and, perhaps, some unfinished business as well.

Not only did Undertaker compete at a pair of 2018 events in Saudi Arabia — defeating Rusev in a Casket Match and falling to the reunited DX alongside Kane — he memorably battled Goldberg at last year’s WWE Super ShowDown event. Goldberg, of course, is scheduled to face ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship tomorrow. Depending on how things shake out, we could be headed from one rivalry straight to the other. It could be equally likely that The Deadman won’t be competing and will instead simply add his presence to the festivities. Tomorrow will bring the answers. Until then, we wait.
Reports indicate The Phenom will face AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 on April 5 in Tampa, and speculation had been that any appearance at Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard on Thursday would be part of the set-up for that match.

We’ll know more tomorrow.
