The much-anticipated showdown between WWE legends The Undertaker and Goldberg failed to deliver over the weekend.
And a disturbing moment after the match looked very scary and real.
The ‘WWE Super ShowDown’ in Saudi Arabia was dubbed as “equal if not better than WrestleMania”, and while it had the pomp and circumstance of the annual extravaganza, that's where the comparison ended.
The show ended with the first-ever meeting between The Undertaker and Goldberg.
In the blistering heat in Saudi Arabia, both men looked sloppy and well past their prime, and the tedious affair ended with "The Deadman" scoring the win.
But it came about after both men botched a number of moves, including a sickening moment where The Undertaker dropped Goldberg on his head during the famous ‘Tombstone piledriver’.
Goldberg was supposed to tuck his head between Undertaker’s legs, but his head and neck were left exposed and came crushing down onto the canvas.
Concerning footage then showed Goldberg collapse as he left the ring, with the legendary wrestler later revealing he’d suffered concussion during the fight.
“Knocked myself out and thought I could finish.... love my fans.....but let u down. Everyone else that found ‘pleasure’ ..... hope ur happy,” he wrote on Twitter.

A number of fans and pundits were just happy he was alive and walking after the horrifying botch.
Goldberg was damn near paralyzed, this was before the botched jackhammer, likely didn’t have much strength after. Also refused the second tombstone which I can’t blame him for. pic.twitter.com/2k2l9JY1dE— Matt Ballard (@Mballard85) June 7, 2019
The match was Goldberg’s first in over two years.
Afterwards, he ‘liked’ an Instagram post to WWE which read: “Can you please stop bringing Undertaker back now?
“Jesus Christ after everything he has done for the company just let him retire in peace. Literally, the match was terrible because those two guys are in their 50s, they can’t compete at main event level any more.
“You saw how Undertaker was struggling to stand after just five minutes, and Goldberg was too weak to even pull off a jackhammer. Just let them live out the rest of their days in peace, or they will end up getting seriously hurt.”
