The heavily-rumored presence of The Undertaker in Saudi Arabia did not take long to bear fruit during WWE Super ShowDown, as the legendary Superstar won the Tuwaiq Mountain Trophy Gauntlet Match as a surprise entrant — much to the chagrin of prohibitive favorite AJ Styles.
The Phenomenal One has recently been proclaiming himself the most talented Superstar of this or any era, and while he didn’t run the entirety of the gauntlet, he still proved an infuriating spoiler before Undertaker made his entrance. Styles entered the bout at No. 4 and quickly snapped a miracle run by R-Truth, who went on a 3-0 run against Bobby Lashley, returning United States Champion Andrade and Erick Rowan (by disqualification) in the first three bouts of the gauntlet.
Alas, Styles quickly denied Truth that glory, submitting him with the Calf Crusher to tee up a final against Rey Mysterio — at least until a locker room attack by The O.C. put The Ultimate Underdog out of commission, setting Styles up for a default victory unless a new opponent presented himself. Undertaker answered, dispatching Gallows & Anderson in the backstage area before making his bone-chilling entrance and pinning the two-time WWE Champion with a Chokeslam to claim the Tuwaiq Mountain Trophy and serve Styles a painful reality check. Yes, AJ is talented enough to defeat any Superstar from any era. But there’s at least one that he hasn’t.
