Al-Hilal vs Al-Nassr had a surprise guest in the Riyadh Season Cup final, making the atmosphere rapturous as fans did not expect to see such a thing.

Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami was invited but failed to pick up any points, losing 4-3 to Al-Hilal and 6-0 to Al-Nassr to crash out of the three-team tourney in the first round.

The highly anticipated 'Last Dance' between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo also fell away after the Portuguese winger pulled out due to a muscle injury, which forced the club to cancel their China tour, per the Guardian.

The Undertaker appears at Riyadh Season Cup

As seen in a video recirculated by DAZN Football, a guest star appeared ahead of the kick-off in the form of WWE Legend, The Undertaker, who was dressed in his wrestling gear.

Fans were clearly surprised at seeing the Phenom, with the former wrestler making an entry his usual way during his time in the square ring, with his theme song in the background.

The 58-year-old, whose real name is Mark William Callaway, had a career which spanned over 35 years and was the company's face of fear throughout his career, often portrayed as 'the Dead Man'.

He went 21 straight Wrestlemania matches without losing before the streak was ended by Brock Lesnar in 2014, where it was reported he suffered a concussion and wasn't part of the decision.

Sports Brief previously reported on Brentford giving Ivan Toney a unique unveiling as the striker returned from his eight-month betting ban against Nottingham Forest.

The Bees switched off the lights at the Gtech Community Stadium to give an effect like The Undertaker's, as Toney’s name was read over their public address system.
