WWE Rumors: Goldberg to work similar schedule to Brock Lesnar until WrestleMania 33
Now that WWE has two beasts on its roster, the company will have to book both Brock Lesnar and Goldberg as part-time performers. It has been less than a week in Goldberg made his triumphant return to the ring at Survivor Series, taking down the Beast Incarnate in less than two minutes.
Since then the man who wasn’t part of a WWE program has been signed to work the Royal Rumble, where he will be a participant in the Rumble match and could possibly be part of WrestleMania 33.
The rumours about Goldberg’s schedule was first announced by cagesideseats.com. Just like Lesnar, it is rumoured that Goldberg isn’t expected to be part of the company’s plans after WrestleMania 33, until which he will work part time.
It has only been nine weeks since Goldberg first made news by calling out Lesnar after Paul Heyman issued a challenge to Mr Who’s Next.
After making short work of Lesnar, in what amounted to a squash match in Toronto last Sunday, it was learned The Beast Incarnate lobbied for a longer program. It now seems feasible that the two could face off in San Antonio in January and then close out their feud in Orlando.
There has been speculation, according to ringsidenews.com there could be one more date involving these two superstars. As of now, Goldberg is committed to three matches total.
Until last week, the last time wrestling fans saw Goldberg was in WrestleMania XX in the main event with Lesnar.
Goldberg beat him and both left the company following the event in Madison Square Garden.
Lesnar has been a part-time performer with WWE, since his return in 2012. He had been out of action from wrestling for eight years, spending time in UFC, where he became the promotion’s heavyweight champion. Goldberg left the business completely, working in other ventures which included acting.
Prior to Goldberg’s official return to WWE, there had been rumours of him facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 as Shane McMahon’s replacement in the Hell in a Cell match. That never materialised.
Talk about Goldberg becoming a performer in WWE gained steam when it was revealed he would be part of WWE’s 2K17 video game. There had been questions as to whether Goldberg would be able to perform at a high level, being away for over a decade.
There was also speculation that an injury on Monday Night Raw prior to Survivor Series would hamper him in the ring. The win in such short fashion guaranteed there would be at least one more match.
