The main news coming out of Friday Night SmackDown was that Bill Goldberg will be challenging The Fiend Bray Wyatt for the Universal title later this month.
Goldberg appeared on the show discussing his time as Universal champion in 2017 and never receiving a rematch before issuing the challenge, which was accepted by Bray Wyatt during his Firefly Funhouse segment.
The two will meet for the Universal title at Super ShowDown on Thursday, February 27th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Goldberg won the Universal title in March 2017 from Kevin Owens and lost it the following month to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33, which was the end of Goldberg’s run at that time. He returned in 2018 to enter the WWE Hall of Fame and had his next match in June 2019 against The Undertaker at Super ShowDown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. After a disappointing match with The Undertaker, Goldberg won a short match against Dolph Ziggler last August at SummerSlam in Toronto.
Wyatt won the Universal title in Saudi Arabia last October defeating Seth Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere match.
During Friday Night SmackDown, a steel cage match between Roman Reigns and King Corbin was also added to the Super ShowDown card.
