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.
During a recent episode of Bruce Prichard’s Something to Wrestle podcast, Conrad Thompson read a quote from the 2003 edition of the WWE show Byte This.
During the 2003 interview, Goldberg disclosed that he didn’t like Triple H, although the two men were involved in a World Heavyweight Championship storyline at the time. He also drew comparisons between the locker room atmosphere in WWE and WCW.
“ʼThe truth is I don’t like the guy and I enjoy wearing the belt that he so graciously called his own because, in reality, it was mine first (…) The one big thing here [WWE] is that we’re all working for the common goal, and you’re not worried about one guy trying to one-up you, and that’s coming from a situation [WCW] where that was commonplace. And let me tell you, this is a definite breath of fresh air.”
