Strowman vs. Lashley added to WWE Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia


Another match has been added to the lineup for WWE's return to Saudi Arabia.

WWE announced today that Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley is set for Super ShowDown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, June 7. Super ShowDown is taking place at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium and will air live on the WWE Network, with the broadcast starting at 2 p.m. Eastern time.

Strowman was originally announced as one of the participants for tomorrow's men's Money in the Bank ladder match, but Sami Zayn is replacing him after defeating Strowman in a falls count anywhere match on this past Monday's episode of Raw. The story of the falls count anywhere match was that Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre got involved and helped Zayn win.

Strowman vs. Lashley is the fourth match that's been announced for Super ShowDown. Goldberg vs. The Undertaker, Triple H vs. Randy Orton, and a 50-man battle royal are set for the show. Roman Reigns, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, Universal Champion Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, and Brock Lesnar are also advertised.

Super ShowDown is the third event in WWE's 10-year deal with the Saudi General Sports Authority.
