Cristiano Ronaldo was among many who were left awestruck as the WWE Superstar The Undertaker made a special appearance during the Riyadh Season Cup final against Al-Hilal on Thursday. The Undertaker made his way towards the ground with his trademark entrance as the lights in the Kingdom Arena went off while a giant moon was projected on the screen and laser lights were flashed throughout the stadium. The Undertaker, also known as Mark William Calaway, walked through the stage and unveiled the trophy to the fans present inside the stadium.

Coming back to the match, Ronaldo made his first appearance since overcoming an injury. However, his team lost 0-2 to rivals Al-Hilal.
Ronaldo, who turned 39 earlier this week, started the game as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Salem Al-Dawasari struck in the first half to seal the win for Al-Hilal.
Ronaldo had a stupendous 2023 as he ended the year by becoming the world’s top goal-scorer. In 2023, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored 54 goals for his country and his current club, Al Nassr.
Ronaldo also holds the world record for the most international goals, scoring 128 for Portugal since making his debut in 2003. He won a UEFA Nations League and EURO Cup with his country.
In the ongoing season of the Saudi Pro League, the Portuguese has appeared in 18 matches for the Riyadh-based club and scored 20 goals. Ronaldo also made nine assists in the 2023-24 season for Al Nassr.
