The Goldberg we saw is a completely different man!

It’s hard to find a wrestling fan who is not talking about Goldberg’s return. Positively or negatively, everyone has their say on the situation and as fans; we are entitled to be so.

The return meant different things for everyone. Some fans were emotionally overwhelmed by seeing him in the WWE ring after more than a decade, while a small portion was busy complaining about how bringing a part-timer is bad.

Either way, as I mentioned earlier, everyone had something to say about the return of Goldberg. On the surface, it was a high-profile return to set up a high profile match.

But if we dig deeper into the segment that Goldberg delivered and the timing of his return, there are certain things that deserve to be dissected. And in this list, we are going to take a look at these talking points.

#5 WWE still relies on their past glory

Blast from the past

The return of Goldberg was a happy sight for many. It was good for WWE in terms of ratings but it once again exposes their inability to create new stars. Every time WWE wants to give their ratings a push, they simply bring in one of the former stars. They draw big, make no doubts about it, but WWE has failed to replace these names.

Over the past few years, this trend has continued and it is more than evident. This technique might be fool proof on a short-term basis, but in the long run, this is going to hurt then big time.
