Goldberg in talks over a WWE return

Published 2 Comments

It could prove to be the biggest story of 2016 as one of the legendary names from WCW looks set to make a return to the WWE.

For a long time now, fans have wondered: will they ever see Goldberg step foot inside a WWE ring again?

Returning legend

The former WCW champion had a short spell in the WWE following the collapse of their biggest opposition to the attitude era, but it didn't really work out the way that he would have wanted.

Aside from debuting and attacking arguably the biggest name in WWE history, The Rock, Goldberg had a fairly unspectacular run in the company.

A WrestleMania clash against Brock Lesnar largely remains as the other highlight of his short spell with WWE which ended on bad terms.

Fans have wondered for years if we'll see him come back but now it looks like it may actually happen despite years of Goldberg claiming that he will never work for the company again.

The former WCW star recently signed a big deal to become the cover star of the WWE 2k17 video game.

Now TMZ are reporting that his representatives are working on a deal to bring him back to the squared circle.

When asked about a possible return, Goldberg said: "Life's too short to dwell upon past differences", an attitude that has clearly changed since his departure from the company in 2004.

Ready for Mania

It has been speculated for a long time now that Goldberg could come back for a return match against Lesnar.

Some fans even speculated that he would make an appearance during SummerSlam last weekend but that proved not to be the case.

Following his brutal victory over Randy Orton, fans began to chant Goldberg around the arena, but instead saw Shane McMahon come down to the ring to try and ward off the beast.

SummerSlam's conclusion proved that the fans want to see Goldberg return and if he does, he should be due a huge reception.
