Goldberg is coming back to WWE to work the next Saudi Arabia event on June 7th. Some people might not be too happy about this, but the only person you can really blame is Vince McMahon.
We previously reported that Randy Orton took a shot at how much WWE paid for those creepy spiders, worms, and other disturbing visuals that filled the ring during his WrestleMania match against Bray Wyatt. This comment went a totally different direction when Goldberg was randomly inserted in the conversation.
Rusev tweeted out: “C’mon guy guys… Goldberg is back.” This is interesting because Rusev was previously taking a shot at the former Universal Champion.
Then Randy Orton replied: “There goes another 2 million.”
This is a pretty blatant shot at not only how much money WWE has to throw around, but also how much Bill Goldberg likely got to make this match happen. Although $2 million might be a little exaggerated, it might not be too far off.
Brock Lesnar was reportedly paid $1 million to work the last Saudi Arabia event. Goldberg was retired and is a WWE Hall Of Famer so it might very well take more than what Lesnar received to convince Bill Goldberg to get on a jet to Jeddah.
