Cristiano Ronaldo was left stunned after watching WWE legend The Undertaker walking out and lifting the trophy during the Al-Nassr vs Al-Hilal match in the Riyadh Season Cup on Thursday.

The Undertaker, who retired from wrestling back in 2020, made an entrance to the venue with his iconic entrance music playing in the background.

The 58-year-old lifted the trophy and added to the electric atmosphere at the ground. Afterwards, the cameras turned towards Ronaldo, who enjoyed The Undertaker’s performance before the high-voltage final.

However, Ronaldo did not have the best of days on the field as Al-Nassr lost the match 0-2.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Salem Al-Dawsari made sure that Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr did not have much of a chance to dominate.

The game began with intense competition, but it was Al-Hilal who broke the deadlock in the 17th minute through Milinkovic-Savic's skillful play. His goal set the tone for the match, giving Al-Hilal an early advantage.

As the game progressed, Al-Nassr, despite having Ronaldo in their ranks, found themselves unable to breach Al-Hilal's sturdy defence. Ronaldo's presence, while influential, was not sufficient to turn the tide of the game on this occasion.

In a demonstration of local talent, Al-Dawsari doubled Al-Hilal's lead, securing the victory and ensuring that the coveted Riyadh Cup would be adorned in the blue and white colours of Al-Hilal.

This triumph added another prestigious trophy to Al-Hilal's already impressive collection, which includes numerous domestic league titles and cups, as well as continental accolades.

The win not only provided bragging rights over Al-Nassr but also continued Al-Hilal's dominance in recent head-to-head encounters, marking their seventh victory in the last nine meetings between the two sides.

Al-Nassr are currently placed second in the table in the Saudi Pro League with 46 points, thanks to wins in 15 out of 19 matches. Al-Hilal, on the other hand, are sitting on top with 53 points courtesy of 17 wins from 19 games.
