Rumor Alert: Goldberg returning to WWE to face Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series

Ever since it was announced that Goldberg would appear in the WWE 2K17 video game, the rumors of his return to the ring have been nonstop. Many speculated if it would just lead to a Hall of Fame appearance, or much more. The right opponent, Brock Lesnar, has been with WWE for years now, and a rematch between the two seemed all the more likely. Nothing hasn’t happened yet, and the had hype died down a bit. It seems the dream may now become a reality.

According to “Good ol’ JR” Jim Ross, Goldberg and Lesnar will square off one more time at WWE’s Survivor Series PPV on November 20th in Toronto.


The last time these two fought was in 2004 at WrestleMania XX. Their match is infamous for their lack of effort due to the crowd at Madison Square Garden knowing they would leave WWE after that night. Lesnar would attempt a career in the NFL before joining the UFC. He would later make his return to the WWE in 2012 and has been a dominant part-timer ever since. Goldberg took a long hiatus from wrestling until returning to the ring on June 7, 2015 at a Legends of Wrestling event at Citi Field (I was there).

A comeback for Bill Goldberg would be something special, even at his age. He would be the third person to be used in some capacity with WWE after first agreeing to be in their video game, joining Sting and The Ultimate Warrior. Over the years, Goldberg has been cooperative on interviews regarding WWE. He has also stated that he wants his kid to see him wrestle one last time. He actually responded to the news in a tweet that didn’t deny or confirm the rumor:


As of now, this is only a rumor, but he could add fuel to the fire tonight. Goldberg is set to appear on ESPN’s Off the Top Rope segment with Jonathon Coachman, which is normally used as a platform for WWE stars. He will be there to talk about his current situation with WWE. If he even hints at anything regarding the Lesnar fight, it could make for some must-watch TV. Lets be honest, if he doesn’t fight Lesnar, is there anyone else who would even be able to answer the classic question: WHO’S NEXT?

If there was ever a time for this match to happen, the 30th anniversary of the Survivor Series PPV would be the place. If not tonight, hopefully an answer will be given in the next few days.
