The Former two time WCW World Heavyweight Champion Goldberg is set to feature in the next installment of the 2k games hit wrestling simulator Franchise ,WWE 2K17 out this October for the PlayStation 4 , Xbox one, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 gaming platforms, 2K games announced. Set to be a special pre-order bonus character much like the recent WWE Hall of Famer Sting, the Ultimate Warrior and Hollywood Legend, the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger from last year’s installment. Pre-ordering the game gets you two versions of Goldberg, one from WCW stint and the other from his WWE run plus those who pre-order will also get two playable arenas in the form of WCW Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc.
So get ready for one of the Cornerstones of WCW during the Monday night wars to mix it up with the likes of Kevin Owens and John Cena or legends like the Undertaker, a face-off that never actually happened. So what could this mean for the man himself? A possible WWE Hall of Fame induction for one and a Return for Goldberg in time for the Grandest stage of them all WrestleMania. Granted his last match in the WWE against Brock lesnar wasn’t all that good due to the fact that they were both departing at the time and not exactly on good terms with the company so who knows? Maybe they can re-ignite their short term feud come WrestleMania?.
Let the speculation run wild but one thing we know for sure, considering the moves WWE has made in the past couple of years over smoothing out relationships with former stars like Bruno Sammartino , the Macho man randy savage and the Ultimate Warrior, a return for the 173 match winning streak and former two time WCW world heavyweight champion should not be ruled out as a possibility come WrestleMania season , so let the speculation run wild.
Here is the trailer for the announcement.
