Goldberg possibly suffered concussion at WWE Super Showdown

The Undertaker and Goldberg squared off at WWE Super Showdown in a match that largely disappointed the fans, considering it was two legends. However, Goldberg didn’t start off the match on a good note.

Goldberg entered the ring while having a cut on his forehead, which some fans might not have spotted. This is believed to have been caused by headbutting a locker or a door which he always does before a match.

According to a report by Wrestling News, there is concern backstage that Goldberg suffered a concussion at WWE Super ShowDown.

I just spoke with someone backstage at Super ShowDown and I am told that trainers are checking on Goldberg and the belief is that he may have suffered a concussion.

We will keep you updated regarding Goldberg’s condition if we learn more.

    Ok my bad I didnt mean dead weight him as in to try to make goldberg look bad I meant it as he didnt have enough energy to execute the jackhammer & despite him trying the reality was he was just deadweight to be lifted. Honestly I dont think taker could take Jack hammer in general, basically he has to hold himself in a handstand as goldberg hold him up & I dont think he can do that with his bad body.

    You said Taker was dead weighting Goldberg, which is a suggestion of unprofessional behaviour. Just like those people who try to claim Hardcore Holly did it to Lesnar when Lesnar broke his neck

  • jedi

    Never said he was unprofessional I said he dropped goldberg on his head. Iv seen it 3 times & taker broke his grip before goldberg’s head hit the floor. I’m not saying the post didnt mess him up or that taker was unprofessional but I am saying taker did not hold on to goldberg like he normally would nor did goldberg clasp his hands like needed to either which resulted in Goldberg being planted head first.
    The only way taker could be called unprofessional here but more along the lines of bad calls is he should have ended it much earlier when it was clear goldberg was not in his right mind.

    He looked out of it in the hallway and took too long to come out to the stage. He was working on automatic some how

    Goldberg was out of it early in the match, you could see it. The botched jackhammer was due to that, nothing to do with Taker being unprofessional.

    He was out of it way before the tombstone.

    I’m thinking he got concussed on the Tombstone and they’re covering it up by saying it happened before the match. Just hearing the concern people had after reviewing that Tombstone is scary to watch, let alone the match itself.

    Apparently Goldberg was concussed after head butting the door during his entrance and he thought he could continue

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Maybe then Goldberg might not have been so miserable like he was (allegedly) during his first run if he’d gotten this match

  • wildeye

    I agree

    Nah, if you look just prior to that when Goldberg ran into the turnbuckle that opened him up, he was never the same after that.
    Taker did everything correctly in that tombstone (for an old guy) it was Goldberg that let go of his hold around Takers waist (possibly slipped due to sweat?)

    Either way even if not botched at all, the 2 big moves shouldn’t of happened for either guy.
    Keep it to Spears and Choke Slams.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    This is why they should have done it in 2003-2004

  • wildeye

    If you watch after he opened the door you can see he was stunned when he walked out. Also it took a bit of time for him to come out to the stage so someone was probably a bit concerned. He tweeted saying sorry he knocked himself out. He was at fault for hitting his head but not in full control. I’m not a Goldberg fan but you can tell something was wrong with him

  • Dystre Fjell

    It’s a miracle he hasn’t died after all the terrifying botches in that match… Not saying that as the angry internet fan, but as a concerned guy for the safety of both legends who should have a peaceful retirement from this business. Goddamn the dirty Saudi paychecks !

    Taker dropped him on his head for tombstone, after that complete down hill! Also frankly as the vet & ring general taker is after the botched jackhammer that was mostly taker dead weighting goldberg he should have went straight to chokeslam ending & not even attempt that sloppy dangerous tombstone reversal they were trying. God forbid the tombstone reversal did work taker would have paralyzed goldberg if he did it again. Audible to chokeslam was key!!
