WWE RAW Legends Nights concluded with the shocking return of Goldberg. Contrary to reports of him returning to face Roman Reigns, Goldberg instead came out and challenged Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship. Before Goldberg's return, McIntyre wrestled a tremendous bout with Keith Lee for the title that left the fans enthralled.
Goldberg last wrestled in WWE at WrestleMania 36, where he lost his Universal Championship to Braun Strowman. Interestingly, he was initially supposed to face Reigns, but the onset of the pandemic saw The Tribal Chief withdraw from the event. After that, a match pitting the two had felt imminent, but now the plans have seemingly taken a different route for the former two-time Universal Champion.
To his credit, Goldberg looked in great shape, and his appearances will surely boost the dwindling ratings in the coming weeks.
Goldberg's return on WWE RAW draws mixed reactions
Some fans are skeptical about Goldberg wrestling even after having a string of poor performances in the past. On the other hand, there are others who fear Drew McIntyre would be losing his title just like The Fiend had earlier last year. A squash loss for McIntyre can damage his character, and WWE would likely face a lot of brickbats from the fans if at all they book Goldberg to go over.
Some fans even proclaimed the return ruined what could have been a great ending to the show, with McIntyre and Keith Lee showing mutual respect after their incredible match.
It would be intriguing to see what direction WWE heads in now that this match seems to be finalized. A Goldberg win wouldn't be the worst thing to happen if WWE takes it as an opportunity to give McIntyre his win back at WrestleMania 37. However, a convincing win for The Scottish Psychopath could propel him further and make him look a million bucks. This also allows other challengers to contend for the title on the Road to WrestleMania.
The likes of Lee, The Fiend, Lashley, Ricochet, and Riddle could prove to be better candidates for the championship going forward. On the other hand, Sheamus has seemingly been left out of the mix. After building up their eventual clash for weeks, WWE has chosen to put the angle on the backburner for now.
