• Rumor Killer On WWE Bringing Back Goldberg Because Of AEW
WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg will return to WWE for next month’s Saudi Arabia PPV on June 7th.
Reports then came out that WWE made the decision to bring Goldberg back to prevent him from signing with All Elite Wrestling (as WWE wants to prevent any mainstream guy from signing with AEW to give them publicity), but that’s not the case.
Multiple sources have now confirmed that WWE isn’t bringing back Goldberg due to the fear of him signing with AEW.
Goldberg is simply being brought back for a one-off appearance because the Saudi Arabia officials, who are big fans of Old School Legends, requested WWE to bring Goldberg to their next PPV event.
