• Backstage News Regarding Goldberg’s WrestleMania 36 Replacement
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg is no longer scheduled to have a match at WrestleMania 36.
This wasn’t the case originally as he was scheduled to have a match at the Grandest Stage Of Them All, but things got changed once The Undertaker’s status for WrestleMania 36 got confirmed.
The idea of Goldberg having a match at WrestleMania 36 possibly got nixed because of this year’s WrestleMania already featuring a lot of “special attractions / part timers”.
Below is the list of part-time wrestlers that are scheduled to have a match at WrestleMania 36:
– Brock Lesnar (will defend the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre in the main event)
– The Undertaker (scheduled to wrestle AJ Styles)
– Edge (scheduled to wrestle Randy Orton)
– John Cena (rumored to wrestle Elias, but plans could change)
No word yet on Triple H’s status for WrestleMania 36.
