Bill Goldberg made his return to the ring last night and did not disappoint. In a shocker, he beat the Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar in just over 90 seconds for the victory. To this point, Brock was riding one of the greatest waves of momentum the industry had ever seen, which included a run with the WWE World Championship and the first victory over The Undertaker at a Wrestlemania. Many were left wondering why the WWE would have a part time performer who is 49 years old and hasn’t wrestled in over 12 years destroy Brock as quickly as he did? What were the long term plans if this were a one and done scenario?
The folks at Pro Wrestling Sheet have discovered the reason why. They state that we’ve not seen the last of Goldberg in a WWE ring. According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, Goldberg has inked a deal that will see him involved in the Royal Rumble this January at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This news makes the results of the Brock and Goldberg match make a little more sense. It reminds me of Money in the Bank 2011 where John Cena faced off against CM Punk. Punk had a contract that was legitimately expiring. They included that knowledge in the story, making people think Punk was going to win the match so he could take the WWE World Championship with him to other promotions. While Punk indeed won the match that night, logically, a major corportation in the entertainment business would not allow an unexpected result like the Punk win, and in this case the Goldberg win, without a plan for the future. At this point, all signs are pointing to the rubber match between the two happening at Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando, Florida.
