Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback took to Twitter and revealed that he will make his official in-ring return this summer, when he will be cleared by the doctors.
He also took the opportunity to challenge WCW Legend Bill Goldberg to a match in the same tweet.
Goldberg is currently looking to set up a retirement tour, which – unless WWE or AEW actually ends up signing him to a contract – will be an independent tour.
Here’s what Ryback tweeted:
“I will be cleared this summer to officially return to wrestling. I challenge Goldberg in my return to a Retirement Match. #Ryback #Hungry #FeedMeMore”
Ryback was destined to be ‘The Next Big Thing’ in 2012, when he achieved an impressive 38 match undefeated streak, that could’ve easily continued for at least another year, if WWE hadn’t put him into the main event too quickly, in order to replace an injured John Cena.
CM Punk was going to drop the WWE Championship to The Rock at the upcoming Royal Rumble 2013 PPV, so they had to end Ryback’s streak somehow in the main event of Hell In A Cell 2012, and they did so with the referee turning heel and screwing The Big Guy.
After the undefeated streak ended, the bad booking for the up-and-coming top star continued and his push in WWE eventually came to an end.
