- As noted before, Bill Goldberg recently shot a promotional video for an October show in the African Congo, billed as the “Rumble in the Jungle II” after the legendary “Rumble in the Jungle 1″ between boxers George Foreman and Muhammad Ali decades ago.

Goldberg said he would come out of retirement to wrestle on the show. In the promo, Goldberg talks about the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo backing the wrestling show. Rick Bassman is reportedly booking talents for the show and he went to Africa last month with Luke Gallows and Nathan Jones to promote it.

Several other big names are being promoted for the show including Kurt Angle, MVP, Matt Hardy, Batista, Shawn Daivari, Chris Jericho, Ric Flair and Shelton Benjamin. At least one of those names knew nothing about the show when contacted and another said his manager was contacted but turned it down.

    I wonder if Goldberg is going to end up in TNA the retirement home of wrestling. I mean everybody else from WCW is there expect Booker T and Kevin Nash. Those two see what I see. WCW all over again in TNA. I said this one time WCW has a new name an it is call TNA.

    I wonder who is going to job to Goldberg. Can this company afford Goldberg? Goldberg vs Batista wouldn’t be bad.

    Edge Spear = Injury
    Batista Spear = Injury
    Lashley Spear = Injury
    Goldberg Spear = R.I.P.

    Ok which one there Marc ? Seriously whats the point of even saying that unless the person was named. 1 in 8 chance. Great work.

    I’ll look to “The Informer” and “Vic Venom” for stories in the future.

    This has dissaster written all over it.

    Well, this sounds about as shady as you’d expect a show in the Congo to.
