    Super Showdown was held in the King Abdullah stadium, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, June 7. WWE was promoting this event as an equal to Wrestlemania, but it was nothing of that sort. Most of the matches were boring and predictable, and the whole event looked like they were pandering to the locals. All of the WWE titles were played except for the women’s championship. The summarized results of the main matches in WWE Super Showdown 2019 are:

    • The Usos defeats The Revival via pinfall (first match)
    • Universal Championship – Seth Rollins defeats Baron Corbin via pinfall and retains the title

    Earlier reports stated that the Saudi government has approved the women’s title match and both the contenders Alexa Bliss and Natalya even flew into Saudi Arabia. But at the last moment, the match was canceled due to fear of public backlash. Saudi Arabia is a strict country in terms of female freedom, and women are not allowed to perform in public.
    The only female in the whole WWE Super Showdown was Renee Young as a part of the commentary team. It is the not first time that such things have happened with WWE, although the makers will believe the female fighters will have a match in the upcoming November event. Since both Alexa and Natalya had no match, they visited sick children in the hospital of Jeddah as a kind gesture on their part.

Jinder Mahal defeated R-truth to take the title on their way to Saudi Arabia.

     

    R-truth used this opportunity and pinned a sleeping Jinder Mahal on a flying plane. When other wrestlers started chasing R-truth, the fighter escaped into the plane’s bathroom and hid there. After this win, R-truth has become a 5-times champion of the 24/7 title.
