WWE Super Showdown The Undertaker Goldberg

7 June 2019 was not a good evening for legendary wrestlers.

In the main event of Super Show-Down, Goldberg and The Undertaker struggled to live up their "dream match" billing.

NXT's jump to the USA Network (and who knew about it behind the scenes), why Andrade wanted to keep his relationship with Charlotte Flair private and more are also examined...
