EVEN Cristiano Ronaldo can get starstruck it seems.
Ronaldo, 39, has been lighting up the world’s screens on a football pitch for more than two decades, but it seems even the legendary CR7 can’t help but fanboy a bit when The Undertaker comes to town.
The WWE icon turned up in Saudi Arabia for a friendly match between Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr and league leaders Al-Hilal.
Just as the game was about to kick off the lights dimmed in the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh.
Then an abrupt gong – familiar to WWE fans – echoed around the arena to signal the arrival of The Undertaker.
Fans online were proclaiming football had “peaked” following the introduction of one of WWE’s biggest legends.
And it seemed even Ronaldo could not help but be excited himself.
TV footage showed the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star talking to team-mates with a huge grin on his face and smiling as The Undertaker unveiled the prize for winning the friendly.
Fans online couldn’t help but notice his reaction.
Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one fan said: “Ronaldo is enjoying 😂.”

However, Ronaldo would not be able to get his hands on the trophy after Al-Hilai won the game 2-0 courtesy of goals from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Salem Aldawsari.
Saudi Arabia struck a multimillion 10-year deal with WWE in 2019 that saw the wrestling giants staging a series of lucrative pay-per-view shows in the Middle Eastern country.
Undertaker has wrestled several matches in the country against the likes of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, AJ Styles and Goldberg.
