The time is almost upon us for WWE to make another return to Riyadh. The company's first time in Saudi Arabia since Crown Jewel at Halloween, it will be bringing its now-annual Super ShowDown event to the desert this Thursday night.
Given that these large-scale super-shows tend to fall strictly in spring/summer and late fall, it was rather unexpected to hear that one of this year's offerings will take place so early into the year - especially as it's directly in the middle of the road to WrestleMania.
However, that's exactly what's going to happen, as the superstars of both Raw and SmackDown are heading to Saudi Arabia this week in the hopes of giving us a WrestleMania-sized super show less than two months before the Showcase of the Immortals itself.
As per usual with these kinds of events, a certain main event match feels like it was literally pulled out of a hat, but in the creative team's defense, a solid number of matches this time around actually do feel warranted and could very well end up furthering - or even ending - a number of the product's long-running feuds.
With that in mind, let's delve into some of the events we might see take place at Super ShowDown, why they're probably going to happen and, if they do, what kind of impact they could have moving forward.
