Anyone who watched Goldberg’s match against The Undertaker over in Saudi Arabia will be well aware of the fact that it didn’t quite live up to the hype – and that is an understatement.
After he seemingly knocked himself out early on in the contest, Goldberg was unable to perform to the standard that many fans expect. Even during his WrestleMania 33 performance against Brock Lesnar he was able to put on a show, but that didn’t happen here.
Taker was visibly frustrated by the time the match came to an end, and in the immediate aftermath, so was Bill himself.
The fact that the former World Heavyweight Champion is willing to step back in there and test himself once again really is a testament to the kind of performer, and man, that he is.
He could easily just ride off into the sunset after everything he has achieved in this business, but that isn’t what he wants to do. He wants to finish off his story in the best manner possible, and the Taker match certainly isn’t the way to go about doing that.
While a rematch against The Deadman may seem unlikely, there’s a good chance Goldberg will go one on one with a younger star before he decides to hang up the boots for good.
Once option, which has been discussed at length ever since he returned back in 2016, is for him to square off with Roman Reigns – potentially on the grandest stage of them all at WrestleMania.
