Former WCW and Universal champion Goldberg has rolled up his sleeves and started training again for his in-ring return next month.
Goldberg was announced as one of the Superstars who will be traveling to Saudi Arabia for the June 7 show for WWE’s third show in the country since last year’s 10-year agreement kicked in.
He posted a photo on his Instagram with Muay Thai teacher Ruben Rowell Jr writing, “Back in the saddle!!! Here we go again! Less than a month out…”
Goldberg has not wrestled since WrestleMania 33 where he lost the Universal title to Brock Lesnar in Orlando, Florida. The next night on Raw, he appeared after the show went off the air and while he clearly stated he’s leaving, he left the door open for a return down the road.
That door opened thanks to Saudi Arabia and the millions of dollars they’re paying WWE to perform in their country. The show is a good pay day for everyone on the roster, especially the big name stars such as Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, and The Undertaker who are given a good sum to perform.
Judging by the social media interactions, Goldberg is looking likely to take on Bobby Lashley on the yet-to-be-named show.
