As noted, Goldberg has reportedly been in talks with WWE for a return to the company.
TMZ first reported in late August that Goldberg was in talks for a return to the company. Earlier this week it was revealed that Goldberg would be appearing on tonight’s ESPN Off The Record segment on SportsCenter, with Michael Cole stating that Goldberg would be discussing his relationship with the company.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross noted on Twitter that Goldberg returning to the company is “a done deal”, and he will likely face Brock Lesnar at the Survivor Series on November 20th in Toronto. Dave Meltzer noted today at F4WOnline that a Lesnar vs. Goldberg match is “all but confirmed for WWE Survivor Series.”
Goldberg has not wrestled since defeating Lesnar at WrestleMania XX in 2004. He hasn’t appeared on-camera for WWE since that match, but it was announced this past May that Goldberg would be a playable character in WWE 2K17, which comes out this month. Goldberg was featured in the first official trailer for the game, as seen below:
