The Undertaker will be facing off against Goldberg at WWE Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia this weekend. Many are wondering why there is no proper buildup or storyline between the two legends ahead of their match. On SiriusXM’s Busted Open radio, Mark Henry explained that there was no need for a storyline.
When Henry was asked if the match had enough of a story, he said a story was not required at all.
“It’s not about all the wins and losses that Goldberg and Undertaker have amassed in all of these years,” he said. “These are 2 of the greatest wrestling icons in the history of the game. Any time that you can put together fantasy warfare…this is modern day fantasy warfare.”
Mark Henry and Matt Camp compared this match to something one would see in a video game. Henry went on to explain that due to Undertaker mentioning of Goldberg’s family and his desire to not wrestle with the “family man” version of Goldberg, a buildup is not needed.
“If I was Goldberg, and he mentioned my family, my kid, I’d go on TV tonight and say ‘Listen dude, you’re a man, you will bleed just like anyone else … You wanted the Goldberg that was 100-0? You got him.’,” he said. “If we get that guy, you don’t need buildup, you don’t need a storyline, you just need to turn the music on and let these two monsters walk to the ring, and it’ll be like Godzilla and Mothra.”
