WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg returned to WWE in 2016 after a hiatus of more than 12 years from the company. He decimated Brock Lesnar in a squash match at Survivor 2016 and then win the Universal Championship against Kevin Owens in 2017. He defended his title against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 in one of the show’s main events. As revealed by his contract, Vince McMahon can only have him compete in one more match every year, so it needs to be meaningful. It was rumored to be the last match of his contract, so it may be his retirement match. Goldberg was also previously diagnosed with a bad illness as well.
He had two matches against Bobby Lashley at WWE SummerSlam and then WWE Crown Jewel on October 21st, 2021 in Saudi Arabia respectively. Goldberg beat Lashley in the second match. Since then, the WWE Hall Of Famer has been absent from WWE television.
Goldberg squared off against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at the WWE Elimination Chamber event in Saudi Arabia on February 19th. The Tribal Chief ended up winning the match as well.
While speaking on his After 83 Weeks show, WWE Hall Of Famer Eric Bischoff talked about working with Goldberg in WCW. Bischoff admitted that he was miserable working with Goldberg.
“On a business level, Bill Goldberg. It wasn’t that way in the beginning, I loved working with him in the beginning. But, once he got a hold of Henry Holmes or Henry Holmes got a hold of him, and Barry Bloom, that was miserable. That was miserable – and there was no fun part to it.
It’s not like, Kevin Nash, when he and I would go head-to-head, it was messy, we’d have a beer and we’d get over it. We came to a good place. I loved that process. But there are certain times when you get into that same type of situation when it’s nothing but blood and knucles and guts and teeth and sh*t, and nothing good comes out of it. It’s not a two-way street.”
