Fans have had a troubled relationship with Goldberg since the former WCW superstar returned a couple of years ago. His lackluster matches against every superstar that he has been in the ring with has almost been enough to turn off the WWE Network. However, fans could be set to see Goldberg once again this year judging by the comments that he made on ‘The Bump’ this week.
The former champion was talking about the match between Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre from Mania, where he admitted that he was impressed with what he saw in the ring. He also admitted that it made him pretty ‘jealous’ that he wasn’t involved in the contest.
WWE News: Goldberg Faced McIntyre
Goldberg also went on to claim in the interview that you need to realise when it’s the right time to walk away from the ring, before claiming that the future is ‘bright’ after watching the WWE Championship match at Mania. Goldberg would know all about the talent of Drew McIntyre, as he squared off with the then-WWE Champion at the Royal Rumble PPV back in January.

In truth, that was one of the better Goldberg matches that we have seen over the past couple of years, as it was a hard-hitting affair. However, like other matches that he has been in, it wasn’t a particularly long encounter, but regardless it was a strong opener for the show on the night.
WWE News: Could He Return?
It is believed that Goldberg will return to the ring at least once more this calendar year. There are a number of likely directions that he could go in when he returns, but the most likely scenario would see him challenge for a major title. He has been involved in a back-and-forth with Roman Reigns for the best part of two years following their canceled match at Mania last year.
That’s one potential route that could make sense, and Reigns could be the final man to beat him before he decides to retire. Instead, he could opt to challenge for the WWE Championship again, and take on the reigning Almighty champion at a later PPV. Lashley has constantly reiterated that he wants to work with Brock Lesnar in the future, which means that one of the bigger PPVs could be the most likely time for that to happen.
