The Undertaker and Goldberg were reportedly involved in a backstage quarrel

There was not much expectation when it was announced that The Deadman would face Goldberg at the WWE Super ShowDown. With both the men way past their prime and the age factor looming as well, it was doomed to be a failure.

But failure was just a soft term aftermath the match, which was classified as a disaster by critics and viewers alike, had much more implications backstage.

Brad Shepard reports that the duo apparently had a huge dispute backstage which apparently involved a lot of shouting. Here’s what Shepard had to say:

The match involved a number of botches and it is also being speculated that Goldberg was concussed. This resulted in the former Universal Champion apologizing to the fans on Twitter.

    I suspect he actually got concussed by headbutting the door in his entrance. It’s happened to him before.

    Well that’s what I thought, as he came very close to the ring post, but then it looked like he immediately cut himself. But yeah, he was moving pretty slow afterwards so I don’t know. So many things you can point to…

  • Robert

    Wasn’t he concussed when he speared the ring post? That’s when his little cut busted oped and he started to gush.

    Just watched it again, that tombstone looked pretty nasty. Not sure why Goldberg didn’t tuck his head in or just didn’t do it in time. This is likely what rang Goldberg’s bell. Didn’t look like it was a case of them slipping, but the setup to the move was definitely awkward.

    As for the finish, that was obviously a mess as they couldn’t pull off the reversal correctly with either Goldberg being barely conscious, both guys being out of gas, or just too sweaty and slippery. The “alternate ending” finishing chokeslam was really weak, unfortunately, and I was kind of hoping Goldberg would kick out and take one more.

    It would have been SLIGHTLY more tolerable if it was not the main event. Like everyone said, expectations were already low for this match. Triple H vs Orton should have been the last match. But I guess what the Prince wants, the Prince gets.
