Goldberg will return to WWE Raw next week

Tuesday October 11th, 2016

Goldberg will return to WWE after a 12-year absence on Monday Night Raw next week.

After being challenged to a re-match with Brock Lesnar by Paul Heyman during Monday’s episode, Goldberg tweeted that he’d answer the call next week in Denver.

“Booking my flight to answer that big mouth [Paul Heyman]’s challenge next week in person on #MondayNightRaw,” Goldberg tweeted. “#WhosNext? #seeyathere”

The 49-year-old’s much-anticpiated return has been rumored for months, with a report from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that he was set to wrestle Lesnar at WWE Survivor Series on Nov. 20. He appeared on SportsCenter shortly after, where many thought he would announce his return.

Goldberg and Lesnar are both featured in the company’s new videogame, WWE 2K17. They feuded shortly before Goldberg left WWE in 2004, with Goldberg defeating him at WrestleManie XX in his final match.

Shortly after Goldberg’s spot on SportsCenter, Heyman tweeted at him in response to his comments about a possible comeback.

Goldberg famously had an undefeated streak while in WCW that was given as 173–0, though a closer examination proved it to be a bloated number. He is a two-time world champion.
