WWE Super ShowDown results: Bill Goldberg runs through Bray Wyatt to win Universal title; Brock Lesnar retains WWE title

The road to Wrestlemania 36 continued on Thursday with Super ShowDown ​at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. If you thought it would just be a standard pay-per-view heading into pro wrestling's biggest event of the year, you were very wrong.

In the main event of the show, 53-year-old Bill Goldberg needed four spears and his trademark Jackhammer to fend off "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt and capture the Universal championship for the second time.

The match began with the WWE Hall of Famer and wrestling's hottest act staring each other down. Goldberg immediately speared Wyatt, but he kicked out at one to the shock of the former WCW heavyweight champion. Wyatt proceeded to put in the mandible claw. Goldberg broke out of the hold and blasted Wyatt with three consecutive spears, but once again, Wyatt kicked out.

Wyatt put in the claw one more time but to no avail when Goldberg headbutted him to escape. Goldberg secured Wyatt and barely got him up for the Jackhammer to win the gold.

Here is what happened with the rest of the WWE Super ShowDown card.

WWE Super ShowDown live results, updates

(All times Eastern)

Bayley successfully retains the SmackDown women's title over Naomi

3:03 p.m.: A better than expected match. Bayley as a heel is really clicking for me. Naomi doesn't get the proper credit she deserves. She's just as good of a worker as Bayley. Too bad they didn't have another five minutes since they were getting into a good rhythm. A creative ending where Bayley put Naomi's feet into her shirt and slammed her head off the mat for the pin.

2:51 p.m.: Right now at WWE Super ShowDown, Bayley puts the SmackDown women's title on the line against Naomi. This is the first-ever WWE female championship match in Saudi Arabia.

Roman Reigns takes care of Baron Corbin inside the steel cage

2:41 p.m.: A ho-hum WWE steel cage match. Reigns and Corbin did nothing wrong. It was fine, but there was minimal use of the cage, which defies the logic of the structure. After an exchange of near falls, Reigns grabbed the chain he brought to the ring and used it for the Superman Punch to get the victory.

Reigns now moves to the Elimination Chamber on March 8 in Philadelphia. The winner is likely to meet whoever leaves Super ShowDown with the Universal title.

2:25 p.m.: Coming up at WWE Super ShowDown, Roman Reigns and Baron Corbin meet in a steel cage match. Reigns defeated Corbin at the Royal Rumble and in a six-man tag team match a couple of weeks ago, which saw Corbin being forced to eat dog food. The end of the feud should be with this encounter.

Brock Lesnar squashes Ricochet to retain WWE title

2:17 p.m.: If you expected Ricochet to garner any offense, that was squashed in the opening moments when he attempted a dropkick and Lesnar swatted him away like a bug. From there, it was a one-way beating. After a couple of suplexes, Lesnar performed the F5 for the one, two, three.

I understand having Lesnar dominate someone heading into Wrestlemania 36 against Drew McIntyre. But someone else could have been picked, not a person who has tremendous potential. It's going to be hard to rebuild Ricochet after this drubbing.

2:06 p.m.: Up next at WWE Super ShowDown, Brock Lesnar defends the WWE heavyweight title against Ricochet. Beyond a video package that only aired on the preshow, WWE has given you no reason to get behind Ricochet, who deserves much better.

Mansoor upsets Dolph Ziggler

2 p.m.: Another clunker. This one was surprising because of Ziggler's ability to keep a match together. You can see the inexperience of Mansoor. The native of Saudi Arabia hit an impressive DDT from the top rope followed by a moonsault for the win.

1:47 p.m.: Up next at WWE Super ShowDown, Mansoor battles Dolph Ziggler.

Seth Rollins and Murphy retain Raw tag team belts

1:40 p.m.: Expectations were high. However, this match was slow, and at times, The Street Profits looked a bit lost. The finish occured when Murphy hit a V-Trigger on Angelo Dawkins and then distracted the referee, which allowed Rollins to execute The Foot Stomp to hold onto the gold.

1:30 p.m.: Up next at WWE Super ShowDown, it's Seth Rollins and Murphy vs. The Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins) for the Raw tag team championships. While the match is intriguing, there's no momentum for the challengers. Let's see if Ford and Dawkins can deliver in their biggest bout to date.

Angel Garza once against defeats Humberto Carillo

1:23 p.m.: While Garza and Carillo didn't get the time they received three days ago, both guys executed the hits. The conclusion was the same as their match on Raw, as Carillo attempted a sunset slip but Garza just sat on his shoulders for the pin.

Carillo and Garza naturally have good chemistry because they're related. Would like to see them in a 25-minute affair and let the cousins tear the house down.

1:13 p.m.: Right now at WWE Super ShowDown, Angel Garza squares off with Humberto Carrillo. The cousins had one of the better matches in WWE this past Monday on Raw. Shocked to see it being run back so quickly. Let's see if they are given enough time to put on another good bout.

The Miz and John Morrison cheat to win the SmackDown tag team belts over The New Day

1:05 p.m.: The New Day looked to be on the way to a successful title defense when Kingston and Miz were going to the ropes. Miz reversed position, and Morrison hit Kingston with a chair to the abdomen that allowed Miz to roll up Kingston.

Solid back-and-forth matchup that could have been better had it gone another five minutes. The right move was made for a title switch.

​12:50 p.m.: Up next at WWE Super ShowDown, The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E) faces The Miz and John Morrison for the SmackDown tag team championship. Should be a good one.

The Undertaker returns to win the the Tuwaiq Trophy

12:45 p.m.: Rey Mysterio was supposed be the final entrant, but Styles' running mates in The OC, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, beat him down backstage. The official started counting Mysterio out when the cameras panned backstage to show Gallows on the ground and Anderson tossed right next to him. The cameras looked down and showed someone walking by. That person was The Undetaker.

After taking what seemed like an hour to make it to the ring, The Undertaker immediately chokeslammed Styles for the pin.

Interesting finish. What's the lure of wanting to see Styles vs. Undertaker again after Styles got squashed like a bug?

12:33 p.m.: Styles ends Truth's quest for the cup. Nothing to it. He beat up Truth the entire time until he put him in the submission for the win.

12:30 p.m.: R-Truth wins via disqualification when Rowan batters him with the steel steps. Here comes the former WWE champion A.J. Styles. Does the magical journey end for Truth?

12:24 p.m.: The miracle run of R-Truth continues with a surprise pin over Andrade. It was clunky, as both guys appeared to be looking for Judas Effect. They both connected, and Truth fell on the United States champion.

Erick Rowan is the next contestant. R-Truth for a $1,000 anyone?

12:15 p.m.: R-Truth scores a fluke pinfall over Lashley, who proceeds to viciously attack him. Now the U.S. champion Andrade is the next participant. Should be easy pickings for the returning titleholder.

12:09 p.m.: Lashley and R-Truth start things off.

12:05 p.m.: Kicking off the WWE Super ShowDown main card is Andrade vs. AJ Styles vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Erick Rowan vs. R-Truth vs. Rey Mysterio in gauntlet match.

11:57 a.m.: A video package airs of the Lesnar-Ricochet contest. Where was this on Raw three days ago? There was no buildup until now.

The OC beats The Viking Raiders

11:55 a.m.: Erik attempted a moonsault onto Anderson but missed. The OC went on to hit the Magic Killer for the win.

Not a bad match. Crowd was into it, so hopefully that's a sign of things to come.

11:35 a.m.: The first match on the preshow features The Viking Raiders taking on The OC (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson) in tag team action. The bout was a late addition to the event.

11:30 a.m.: Welcome to Sporting News' live coverage of WWE Super ShowDown. Two title matches top the bill. Brock Lesnar defends the WWE championship against Ricochet and "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt puts the Universal title on the line against Bill Goldberg.

These shows from Saudi Arabia tend to be interesting, so grab the refreshments and stay locked in.
