• Goldberg Reveals What He Wants To Do Next In Wrestling
WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg made his return to in-ring action after over two years at WWE Super ShowDown 2019 and lost to The Undertaker in the main event.
The last minute of the match didn’t go according to plan as Goldberg suffered a concussion during the match.
Goldberg tweeted the following after the match:
Knocked myself out and thought I could finish…. love my fans…..but let u down. Everyone else that found “pleasure” ….. hope ur happy

A fan recently asked Goldberg what’s next for him and below is what Goldberg replied:
The only thing I need to accomplish is to erase the feeling I have from my last performance ? https://t.co/2HH1Ax2cDO

According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE was said to be “all in” on Goldberg’s return and that Goldberg agreed to work three consecutive WWE PPVs in Saudi Arabia for a total amount of $6 million.
Goldberg’s next match in Saudi Arabia would’ve taken place at the November PPV, where he would have teamed up with “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns to take on the team of the “Best In The World” Shane McMahon and a partner of his choosing.
After this, the plan was to book a WWE Championship match between Goldberg & Roman Reigns at the May/June 2020 Saudi Arabia PPV (no word on who was planned to be the WWE Champion heading into this match).
These aren’t the only matches that Goldberg agreed to work. WWE officials planned on doing 3 matches between Goldberg & The Undertaker in 2019 (tap here to know more).
