Corbin to challenge for Universal title at WWE Super ShowDown


Baron Corbin is now the number one contender to the Universal Championship.

Corbin defeated The Miz, Bobby Lashley, and Braun Strowman in a number one contender's fatal four-way match on tonight's Raw and will challenge for Seth Rollins' Universal title at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.

Corbin pinned The Miz to win the fatal four-way, which was announced as an elimination match. Lashley and Strowman brawled through the crowd and to the back and never returned.

Lashley vs. Strowman had already been confirmed for Super ShowDown before tonight.

The number one contender's match was originally announced as Miz vs. Lashley vs. Strowman vs. AJ Styles, but it was revealed that Corbin was replacing Styles due to Styles being injured. Corbin also attacked Styles during a backstage segment tonight.

Brock Lesnar still has his Money in the Bank briefcase coming out of tonight's Raw. He's advertised for Super ShowDown but doesn't have a match announced yet.

Super ShowDown is the third show in 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.

Here's the updated card for the event:

  • Goldberg vs. The Undertaker
  • Triple H vs. Randy Orton
  • Universal Champion Seth Rollins defending against Baron Corbin
  • WWE Champion Kofi Kingston defending against Dolph Ziggler
  • Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon
  • Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley
