WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg made his shocking return at RAW Legends Night, where he challenged Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble. McIntyre accepted Goldberg’s challenge the next week and the match was made official for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Fans and Superstars alike did not receive Goldberg’s sudden push to the main event scene well at all.
While speaking to Booker T on the Hall of Fame podcast, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin talked about Goldberg’s return to WWE. Austin said that as a businessman, he understands why Goldberg came back.
Austin noted that Goldberg can bring in viewers from the time WCW was beating WWE in ratings during the Attitude Era. It is ultimately a business move and if that is what Goldberg wants to do, then he will do it.
“When Bill does that, he’s putting himself in a position to do it, so as a businessman, hey, I get it. It is what it is. This isn’t a knock on the current roster, but he can bring some eyeballs back from when WCW was running against us in the Attitude Era. But it is what it is and it’s a business move by Bill. If Bill wants to do business, he’s going to do business.”
Drew McIntyre and Goldberg are set to have a face-to-face in next week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
