WWE 2K17’s Goldberg is open to a real-life return – and wants to wrestle The Undertaker

Both Lesnar and Goldberg left WWE in acrimonious circumstances after a WrestleMania 20 bout which fans booed out of the building, but Lesnar returned in 2012 – and Goldberg says he’s now open to doing the same. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: [the past is] water under the bridge. If WWE wants to make good money, and have a good opponent for Brock… hey, who knows?” 

Lesnar isn’t the only man on his list of prospective opponents, either. Goldberg also says he’s like to go one-on-one with Seth Rollins – “Captain Crossfit needs to be taught a lesson” – and reserves particular praise for a legend who he never got to wrestle during his brief 2003-04 WWE tenure: The Undertaker.

“Taker is an idol of mine,” he says. “I’ve know him since before I got into the business. I very much respect him both in and out of the ring – as a human being first and foremost, but also as a wrestler, with all he’s achieved. Going up against him would be a dream come true for me – and the fans, obviously.”

Goldberg also explained the deal he has with his nine-year-old son Gage, whereby the latter earns gaming time in exchange for real exercise. “It’s called the 100/100/100: 100 push ups, 100 sit ups and 100 push kicks for 20 minutes on a videogame," he reveals. "As far as I’m concerned he can continue playing it for as long as he likes, as long as he continues to do that stuff, as he gets something out of it at the same time.”

On WWE network’s show Talking Smack, SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan asked the Usos about why they sometimes don’t get good reactions from the crowd even though they are pretty good performers. Jimmy and Jey Uso shared their thoughts about the issue saying that this is a result of fans associating them with Roman Reigns.

Del Rio subsequently shocked audiences with his surprise return at the WWE at Hell in a Cell pay per view on October 25, 2015.

But over the course of the following eight months, Del Rio's matches and involved storylines would prove unremarkable. The most attention generated by the wrestling superstar was usually the result of his tumultuous real-life relationship with girlfriend Paige, a fellow WWE superstar.
