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. It’s rumored to be the last match of his contract, so it may be his retirement match. 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 few months ago.
Goldberg squared off against Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at WWE SummerSlam but was unable to continue on with the match due to getting injured as part of the storyline. Bobby Lashley won the match via referee’s stoppage.
Dolph Ziggler recently spoke to XeniaDidThat, Dolph Ziggler talked about thinking about dying in the ring and revealed that he had such thoughts when competing against Goldberg.
A lot of times you don’t [think about dying in the ring] but maybe if you’re in there with Goldberg, you think about it a lot more.”
