After Goldberg made his much-anticipated return to WWE programming and accepted Brock Lesnar’s challenge last week on Raw, much ado has been made about the details of their match, and if Goldberg may even stick around till WrestleMania 33 regardless of the outcome.
While the Lesnar-Goldberg match is rumoured to be slated for Survivor Series, the WWE are also open to the idea of retaining Goldberg’s services so that he can at least be advertised for WrestleMania 33.
Latest reports regarding the same seem to suggest that the WWE want him to work a retirement match at WrestleMania, but there has been no word either way as to his status. Given that he is almost 50, and coming off a 12-year long hiatus, it seems like the WWE want to ascertain if he is in sufficient ring shape before giving him the second bite at the cherry.
What is being rumoured, however, is that regardless of whether he performs at WrestleMania 33, he will be headlining the Hall of Fame inductees for the class of 2017 next year.
Goldberg’s return to WWE television was accompanied by massive fan reception and a bump in ratings for Monday Night Raw as well, keeping the viewership numbers hovering above the 3 million mark throughout the duration of the show.
The man who boasted of a 173-0 undefeated streak in WCW, and also a subsequent run in the WWE that saw him get booed off after his final match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 20, received a rapturous ovation when he returned on Raw this past week.
While the match between him and Lesnar is set in stone, there is also some talk about a potential Spear vs Spear match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33.
