According to Dave Meltzer on the latest episode of his “Wrestling Observer Radio” show, Goldberg and WWE are in serious talks and says a deal between the two sides could already be done.
Meltzer mentioned that Goldberg and WWE are in the “very strong discussion stage” at this point, which essentially means they are finalizing the terms of the contract.
As noted, Goldberg signed a separate deal with 2K Sports to be the special pre-order bonus character for the new WWE 2K17 video game. Goldberg had some fun going back-and-forth with Brock Lesnar to help re-introduce his presence. As with both The Utimate Warrior and Sting, it appears that Goldberg’s deal with 2K Sports ultimately led to a direct deal with WWE and subsequent storyline return on television.
Stay tuned for developing news involving Bill Goldberg’s return to WWE.
