First the WWE World Cup and now the Tuwaiq Mountain trophy
is also coming to WWE for the Super ShowDown event in Saudi
Arabia later this month.
Well, it looks like WWE has chosen a Saudi name for their
latest prop. Tuwaiq is a narrow escarpment that cuts through
the plateau of Najd in central Arabia, running approximately
800 kilometers from the southern border of Al-Qasim in the
north, to the northern edge of the Empty Quarter desert near
Wadi ad-Dawasir in the south.
The trophy will be awarded to the winner of a six-man
gauntlet match, the latest match added to the Super ShowDown
pay-per-view. The match will feature United States champion
Andrade, Bobby Lashley, Rusev, Erick Rowan, R-Truth, and AJ
Styles. Both Andrade and Styles are currently out, with
Andrade suspended for 30 days and Styles with an injury. The
suspension will be ending just in time for Andrade while
Styles is said to be recovering quicker than expected from
his shoulder injury he suffered at the Royal Rumble.
There are five matches so far announced for Super ShowDown
and no womens match yet.
