WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg accepts there are still some advantageous contentions for him in WWE.
Showing up on WWE’s The Bump (h/t Felix Upton of Ringside News), Goldberg reacted certifiably when inquired as to whether he can in any case dazzle the WWE Universe: “Hey, let’s be perfectly honest—a different era of Goldberg would match up against anybody. The question is—could this era of Goldberg match up with anyone still and have it be interesting? I think the answer is absolutely yes.”
The 54-year-old has wrestled an extremely restricted timetable for WWE as of late and has not showed up on WWE programming since the Royal Rumble in January, when he lost to Drew McIntyre in a WWE Championship match.
Prior to that, Goldberg put the widespread title at risk at WrestleMania 36 a year ago, dropping it to Braun Strowman.
That match was initially expected to be Goldberg versus Roman Reigns, yet The Big Dog pulled out of WrestleMania in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, driving WWE to sub in Strowman as a late substitution.
Given that Goldberg versus Rules never occurred, that quarrel is likely the most charming one remaining for the veteran, particularly given that Reigns is currently a predominant heel under his Tribal Chief persona.
Rules is basically the heel rendition of what Goldberg was in WCW regarding cutting down the opposition and appreciating a long title rule. In addition, the two of them utilize the Spear as a completing move, which is something that can be woven into the storyline.
During an appearance on The Pop Culture Show last August, Goldberg uncovered that he is contracted with WWE through 2023 on an arrangement that will see him wrestle two times a year.
That implies there are five matches left on his agreement, including one more this year. One can just expect that WWE would need to have him for a major show, so maybe SummerSlam is the objective for the following Goldberg match.
Rules versus Goldberg would be something WWE can put on the marquee for SummerSlam, yet it is a long way from the solitary Goldberg match that may arouse the curiosity of fans, as conflicts with WWE champion Bobby Lashley, Riddle, Cesaro and Big E stand apart as possible challenges of note too.
