Former WCW Champion Bill Goldberg is set to return to the WWE after almost 12 years being away from the big leagues as he faces the Beast incarnate Brock Lesnar in a rematch from their WrestleMania 20 Encounter in 2004.

With the former WCW Champion and Longest streak owning Bill Goldberg set to respond to the challenge laid out by Brock Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman on WWE Raw this coming Monday.

Now why would Bill Goldberg want to do this at almost 49 years of age? For one it’s basically foreshadowing as being involved with the WWE 2K Series of video games often leads to some Legends of the sport’s entertainment industry being involved in some way as it appears the video game deal seems to smooth things over if there has been any animosity in the past between WWE and Legendary talent such as with the Ultimate Warrior for past games and with next year’s game rumored to involve the Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle in some form, in any case the former WCW Champ also wants this done so that his son could watch him wrestle for the first time.

This dream match many thought would not happen again especially in this day and age is most likely taking place at the WWE Survivor Series event on the WWE Network in November 2016. It certainly is intriguing where this storyline is heading and it appears things have been smoothed over between Bill Goldberg and the leader in Sports Entertainment, the WWE.

Goldberg announced for WWE 2K17, will feature as a pre-order bonus character

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.
