WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg made his return to WWE in 2016 after a hiatus of more than a decade from the company. He would go on to defeat 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 main events of the show. As stated by his contract, Vince McMahon can only have him compete in one more match this year, so it has to mean something. Goldberg also admitted to mocking Ric Flair for being too old to be in the ring in the past. Goldberg also sent a bold message to a female WWE Superstar a couple of months ago.
Goldberg finally made his return to WWE television as he appeared on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW after Bobby Lashley successfully defended his WWE Championship against a returning Keith Lee. Afterwards, Goldberg appeared and challenged Bobby Lashley for a WWE Championship match by declaring that he is next.
WWE is currently advertising Goldberg for two more appearances on Monday Night RAW as well. He is scheduled to appear on the August 2nd and August 16th episode of the show. The August 16th Raw could be Goldberg’s last under his 3-year WWE contract, signed in spring 2019 for 2 matches per year.
Bobby Lashley took to Twitter and made it clear that he doubts Goldberg will even appear on Monday Night RAW this week.
Yeah we’ll see if he actually shows up… #WWERaw
