Goldberg didn't wrestle for a long time after his WrestleMania 33 loss to Brock Lesnar. He was honored with a WWE Hall of Fame induction in 2018, with Paul Heyman himself inducting the former WCW World Champion. Goldberg was the WWE Hall of Fame headliner that year.

He came back to WWE to have a dream outing against The Undertaker, a year later. Goldberg and The Undertaker came face-to-face on an episode of SmackDown, days before their Super ShowDown encounter.

Goldberg vs The Undertaker was a disaster

The match was marred with botches from both WWE legends, and was heavily criticized by the fans and wrestling critics. The Undertaker came out victorious in the end, putting a stop to what was dubbed by fans as a disaster. 

Many slammed WWE for putting two veterans in the ring without any concern for their safety and well-being. Goldberg himself acknowledged the fact that he didn't perform well in the match, and was genuinely upset about the same.

The former Universal Champion didn't appear on WWE TV again for weeks, but his next return was going to happen much sooner than fans had expected.
