The ending of Super ShowDown brought a scary end to what was an embarrassing night for WWE.

Goldberg vs. The Undertaker reinforced the amount of risk that exists when you put two 50-year-old wrestlers against each other. The match was laid out exactly as it should have been and was on its way to being good, but things fell apart when Goldberg got knocked out.

Goldberg (who already had a mark on his forehead going into the match) got busted open when he went for a spear into the corner and rammed his head into the post less than three minutes in. From there, things only got worse.

The Undertaker hit a Tombstone piledriver where Goldberg landed directly on his head. Goldberg went for a Jackhammer, but he couldn't hit the move properly and dropped Undertaker with a brainbuster. It appeared that they were going for a Tombstone reversal spot at the finish, but both of them fell down. Undertaker then just hit a chokeslam and pinned Goldberg.
