According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the new WWE Title match was only planned just a few days ago. WWE officials decided over the weekend that nobody else was ready to challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble.

It was decided on Saturday. Goldberg’s interest in facing Roman Reigns wasn’t a swerve, and it wasn’t to throw people off.

Goldberg was determined as the top contender for Drew McIntyre’s WWE Title after that. As of this writing, there is still no word on whether Goldberg vs Roman Reigns is still the plan at any time. Goldberg is contracted to wrestle two matches per year for WWE for the next two years.

We will have to see what happened in this situation, but Goldberg showing up certainly made for an interesting conclusion for Legends Night.
