#1 Status of Goldberg
The recent appearance of Goldberg for the WWE 2K17 has sparked off a lot of rumors about a probably in-ring return from the former WCW Champion. However, the relationship between Goldberg and WWE is still pretty much shaky and they are yet to start talks regarding a potential match. Despite this, the talks could be started anytime soon and if it does, Brock Lesnar is the likely opponent for Goldberg
WWE teased the same by having a Suplex City sign in the video of WWE 2K17 and also, Goldberg acknowledged the same. This was done to hype the potential match and thus give Goldberg a leverage when he will be sitting for negotiations.
