- Updated: February 14, 2020
WWE is all set to host its Super ShowDown 2020 in Saudi Arabia as it prepares for the 5th event under its banner to take place here. After the fading out of Crown Jewel and delayed flights for its superstars along with widespread indignation on social media subsequently, it was initially assumed that the event would run into rough weather as well. However, things are proceeding smoothly as of now with some matches already confirmed for WWE Super ShowDown 2020.
This is the third such Super ShowDown event that will take place at the King Fahd International Stadium at Riyadh in Saudi Arabia on the 27th of February, 2020. The show will be aired at varying times in different locations. The dates for airing are the same for the USA, India and UK although they are 28th February for Australia.
Super ShowDown 2020 Timings and other Details
The starting time for WWE Super ShowDown is 1 PM EST (USA) and a kick-off show of 2 hours may precede the event although nothing has been confirmed on this aspect till now. The actual show may start from 11 AM EST as a result. For now, the Main Card timings are 9 AM PST (Pacific Time), 11.30 AM IST (Indian Standard Time), 6 PM GMT (United Kingdom) for 27th February and 5 AM ACT (Australian time) on 28th February.
Super ShowDown 2020 Predictions
WWE Championship- Ricochet vs. Brock Lesnar
Ricochet has been able to put Lesnar off balance at the Royal Rumble held sometime earlier. The superstar is known for his incredible agility and enabled Drew McIntyre to eliminate Brock Lesnar, hitting him hard with the low blow. After having qualified for this championship bout by trouncing Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins, Ricochet will finally have a shot at this title. However, previously, Brock Lesnar disrupted his winning celebrations, putting the F-5 on him. This will be the main match and the budding feud will certainly make for an interesting contest although the main feud being created is between Lesnar and McIntyre so that will probably culminate in a face-off at WrestleMania in the future.
Prediction- Brock Lesnar to emerge victorious.
WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship- John Morrison and The Miz vs. The New Day
This one is going to be a cracker. John Morrison has recently come back to the WWE Universe and after pairing up with The Miz, he has already become a major contender for winning the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. However, it will not be easy to defeat The New Day and this could possibly be one of the most exciting matches taking place in Riyadh.
Prediction- The New Day to be defeated by John Morrison and The Miz.
Assumptions about the Remaining Matches
The previous two matches have already been announced and here’s taking a look at some of the assumed ones:
WWE Intercontinental Championship: Braun Strowman vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Strowman has played a vital role in PPVs linked to Saudi Arabia and this time could be the same. Strowman has recently emerged victorious at the Intercontinental Championship although Shinsuke may also gear up fiercely for this fight.
Prediction: Braun Strowman to defeat Shinsuke Nakamura.
WWE Universal Championship: Goldberg vs. The Fiend
The Fiend has been successful in eliminating almost every WWE Superstar in his way and this covers Daniel Bryan as well. The Fiend defeated him at Royal Rumble and this may conclude his overall reign. However, he is sure to get a spot at this event and who better as an opponent than Goldberg? Goldberg is one of the iconic wrestlers returning to the WWE and this may lead to a whole new feud. It may also create a new feud between Roman Reigns and The Fiend if the former comes out to save Goldberg post the match.
Prediction- The Fiend to defeat Goldberg.
Kevin Owens and The Viking Raiders vs. The AOP and Seth Rollins
This is one of the biggest WWE feuds and should find a place at the show. Kevin Owens may pair up with The Viking Raiders when Samoa Joe is absent, for competing with Seth Rollins and The AOP.
Prediction: Seth Rollins and The AOP to defeat The Viking Raiders and Kevin Owens.
Hulk Hogan may make an appearance at WWE Super ShowDown 2020 and there are rumors floating about a final match for him to bow out on his own terms. However, such a match here seems unlikely although an appearance could be possible. WWE Super ShowDown 2020 will be streamed live in India on the WWE Network along with Sony TEN 1 and TEN 1 HD for English along with TEN 3 and TEN 3 HD for Hindi. Saudi Arabia will certainly witness a truly exciting event!
