Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler official for WWE Super ShowDown


After it was set up on last night's SmackDown, Kofi Kingston defending his WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler has officially been announced for Super ShowDown.

WWE uploaded a post-SmackDown video where Kingston accepted Ziggler's challenge for Saudi Arabia. Ziggler made a surprise return to WWE television last night and attacked Kingston, who was put on a stretcher at the end of the angle. When he got to the stage, Kingston got up and insisted on walking to the back on his own.

Ziggler cut a promo later in the show where he explained his actions. Ziggler talked about the opportunities Kingston has taken advantage of and said that it should have been him.

WWE is hyping that Brock Lesnar will appear on next Monday's Raw and announce which champion he's going to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on. If that match happens at Super ShowDown, it appears that it will be Universal Champion Seth Rollins defending against Lesnar.

Super ShowDown is part of WWE's 10-year deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority. It's taking place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah on Friday, June 7 and will air live on the WWE Network starting at 2 p.m. Eastern time.

Here's the updated card for Super ShowDown:

  • Goldberg vs. The Undertaker
  • Triple H vs. Randy Orton
  • WWE Champion Kofi Kingston defending against Dolph Ziggler
  • Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon
  • Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley
  • Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor (as his Demon character) defending against Andrade
  • 50-man battle royal
