WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg is a veteran in the pro wrestling world, having made a name for himself in WCW before making his way to WWE. He sporadically makes his return to the company for the sake of nostalgia.

Goldberg is currently involved in the main event title picture yet again as he is set to square off against Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21.

Many fans are still enraged at the fact that Goldberg is in the title picture again. While speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T justified WWE’s decision to bring Goldberg back, stating that nostalgia plays an important role and hoped that the nostalgia never goes away.

”When we’re talking about someone like Goldberg coming back, there’s a lot of these young guys, young internetters, that don’t like seeing an older guy like Goldberg come back, ‘He’s over the hill.’

He’s past his time’, but think about all those fans that have paid money to see Goldberg for many years that say, and it is just like if it was Joe Frazier or Muhammad Ali coming back at 60, they would say, ‘We have to see him.’ It’s one of those deals. It’s nostalgia. Nostalgia is something that hopefully never goes away. Never, ever goes away.”

We will have to wait and see who will end up the victor in the match between Bobby Lashley and Goldberg at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21.
