The world of football met the wrestling ring in a shocking twist. Beloved wrangler 'The Phenom', otherwise known as The Undertaker, made waves with his iconic entrance in Saudi Arabia's Kingdom Arena for the Riyadh Season Trophy presentation. Footballers from both Al Nassr and Al Hilal watched on as the legendary wrestler made his eerie walk to collect the trophy amidst his famous druids.

Embracing his WWE persona, The Undertaker hoisted the trophy just like the urn carried by his late manager Paul Bearer. Among these spectators was none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, who couldn't help but laugh at the surreal pre-match ceremony with his teammates.

Social media users were left gobsmacked. One user exclaimed: "Wait this is real life?! I thought it was clipped together." Another echoed: "The crossover we didn't know we wanted," and one chimed in with "This is weird and awesome at the same time. It's crazy." It's worth noting that WWE has been hosting live shows in Saudi Arabia since 2018. Despite facing criticism due to the country's traditional values, progress has been made. In fact, Natalya and Lacey Evans had a historic moment when they became the first women to wrestle in Saudi Arabia in 2019.

WWE has put on several women's matches in Saudi Arabia, with the latest happening in November 2023. The Undertaker has also wrestled there twice, beating Rusev in 2018 and Goldberg in 2019. Cristiano Ronaldo was seen enjoying watching the former WWE champ before his match against Al-Hilal. But he wasn't smiling for long as Al Nassr lost 2-0, with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Salem Aldawsari scoring the goals.

Cristiano's return

The 39-year-old star recently came back to play after missing his team's big 6-0 win over Lionel Messi's Inter Miami on February 1. They had to cancel their tour in China because of an issue with Ronaldo. They couldn't play their games against Shanghai Shenhua and Zhejiang, which upset many fans. Ronaldo said sorry to the fans: "I have played for 22 years and I am a player that doesn't have too many injuries. "So I'm really sad because Al-Nassr and myself have come to China to enjoy the tour. We have not cancelled the game, we want to push for the game and be back here... Unfortunately, I have some problems, but this is part of football and my life."
