WWE is struggling lately, and that is no surprise with ratings having gone down considerably and the injuries causing a lot of talents to miss time. They’re trying to make up for those losses as best they can, but the big names are missing. Brock Lesnar is expected back sooner rather than later, but is WWE teasing a return by Bill Goldberg too?
There have been rumors of a Goldberg return to WWE since his last match with the company at WrestleMania XX back in 2004. Nothing has ever happened, and it’s actually been said to never even have gotten that close, but one has to wonder about some of the things that WWE does or hints at from time to time.
As of Sunday evening, this is one of the scroll-through images and stories on the main page of WWE.com. There are some big storylines going on and WWE is prepping for the TLC Pay-Per-View that is happening in just a week.
Yet, they have a story about Goldberg on the front page of the site talking about who ended the 173-0 undefeated streak.
Going past the main image, there are five videos going through different matches where Goldberg was defeated. It shows matches against Scott Steiner, Bret Hart, Booker T, Kevin Nash, and then Goldberg in the Elimination Chamber match in 2003.
It’s just really some odd timing on WWE’s part.
Inquisitr reported that Goldberg spoke with Triple H back in June of this year about returning to WWE or maybe his induction into the Hall of Fame. Goldberg said he would love to have his kid see him wrestle one day, but nothing ever came of it.
Jim Ross believes that both Goldberg and Batista should be called up by WWE to return before WrestleMania 32.
Some think this could lead to a do-over of the failed Lesnar vs. Goldberg feud from over 10 years ago, but that isn’t confirmed.
