Jericho as special guest referee, huge NXT debut coming up and much more.
Soaking up rumours and speculating about them, is something that all wrestling fans out there love to do. And as always, the WWE fan base was buzzing about a string of things throughout the past week.
WWE’s announcement of Goldberg’s return has shaken things up on the internet. There were also talks about the latest hiatus that John Cena is planning to take after No Mercy, which was masterfully hidden by WWE with James Ellsworth.
Chris Jericho also featured in an interesting position in the rumour mill. And as always, we are going to list down the top rumours and look at their potential impact on the WWE landscape.
#5 No long term plan for Goldberg
The current plan is for Goldberg to face off against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Both the superstars are unlikely to cross paths till the pay-per-view but then again the plans could change.
As things stand, Goldberg does not feature in WWE’s long term plans. The Survivor Series match is supposed to be a one-time thing unless Goldberg manages to attract tonnes of fanfare.
There is also no news on how WWE would book the match going forward and it could go either way. No matter how the company books it, expect negative comments to arise as the fans wouldn’t want to see both the superstars suffer a defeat.
