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. He is also expected to appear on this year’s WWE SummerSlam. Goldberg also sent a bold message to a female WWE Superstar a couple of months ago.
For a long time, WWE has been releasing several Superstars from their contracts, much to the dismay of fans and other pro wrestlers alike. According to a report from Fightful Select, WWE releases will become a regular occurrence in the future.
The source confirmed that WWE releases are going to be a regular occurrence moving forward, but says that they personally expect 2021 to be an outlier with both the frequency and the level of talent.
